I do not watch TV but I am a fan of Netflix and streaming from Amazon. I get my music from iTunes. I am always amazed by the creativity of people. The creativity never stops and this is what makes this world so special.
Feeling sad, uninspired, stuck? Grab your headphones and listen to Michael Kiwanuka "Cold Little Heart", Hozier's "Better Love" (you may know his other song "Take Me to Church") and Leon Bridges' "River". Music always inspires me. Set your station on Pandora and you are ready to go.
P.S. I hope to attend M. Kiwanuka's concert in the future. What about planning your vacation in conjunction with a cool concert?
In the arena of feel good movies, I do have a recommendation. I did, I really did like "The Legend of Tarzan". Romantic theme combined with the fantasy never fails for me.
If you want to laugh tune into HBO's "Last Week Tonight with John Olivier". You can stream HBO through Amazon.
My almost last recommendation should not disappoint you, "Big Little Lies". This is a dark comedy - drama HBO miniseries on motherhood, second wives, second husbands, no husbands. It sort of sounds familiar nowadays. Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon and Laura Dern are fantastic. Alexander Skarsgard is my new favorite actor along with Tom Hiddleston from "The Night Manager". "The Night Manager" is another miniseries you can stream from Amazon. It is like James Bond but better.
I am waiting for "The House of Cards" season 5 with Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright, and Chelsea Handler's Talk Show season 2. Both are Netflix shows and should come back in April.
So I do have this resting time far away from traffic, crowds and yes even people. I call it My Retreat Time with the headphones and movie screen. Not bad at all.
