Vlog: My Hyggelig Snowy Day

January finally brought us some snow this year. I was beside myself with joy. Being an introvert, I love snowy days. It allows me to stay in and HYGGE: read a book by the window while drinking my cup of coffee, snuggle up with Max, cook dinner at a slow leisurely pace, watch my favorite Netflix series (currently it’s THE CROWN). This was my “hyggelig” snowy day. The vlog is up today!

My Silent Vlog Board on Pinterest

Yes, Sarahdippity’s silent vlogs are on Pinterest. I created this board a short while ago but am not good with populating and updating it. Keeping up with posting on YouTube is one of my goals this year, along with trying to make a documentary film and a short film or two. It’s already February though and we are still in the middle of our COVID era. I’m not sure how to make movies given the parameters we are living in. Like my Dad so wisely advised, just take it “one day at a time.”

Visual Inspirations: Yasujiro Ozu’s An Autumn Afternoon

Winter is finally here. We had our first snow storm of 2021 and it has been a wonderful lazy Sunday. In need of a large dose of inspirations, I browsed through the Criterion Channel tonight after watching THE CROWN and YOUR HONOR. The results are these beautifully framed shots of AN AUTUMN AFTERNOON (1962), directed by Yasujiro Ozu (Japan). I’ll post more once I have a chance to finish the film.

Inauguration Day

So glad Inauguration Day today was a peaceful, historic and much more hopeful one. The country is back on track!
Also … my nephew is 19 today! It feels like yesterday that he turned 12 while scooping up snow to taste right out of his hands. And the day before when he was 6 and said “it’s so hard to be 6.” Time flies is an understatement. Soak it all in before it passes you by.
