Don’t you just love Humphrey, Ingrid and the Silver Screen? Sam could play it again and again for me and I would never grow tired of it. By the way did you know the phrase “Play it again Sam” was never uttered? It is one of the top ten misquotes in history. If you don’t believe me look it up! Ok maybe it’s just me and bkm that are infatuated with the silver screen and classic Hollywood but this week we wanted to share this passion of ours with everyone here at Poets United.
This will be the beginning of a continued theme on The Thursday Think Tank. Every third Thursday we intend to bring you a musical or movie inspired theme. We have done one or two before, the most recent one I recall was Leonard Cohen suggested by Mary Kling, but bkm thinks it should be a common occurrence and I couldn’t agree more.
Find a quiet moment and listen to “As Time Goes By”. If you need further inspiration watch the montage that runs alongside the song on the YouTube video. Let it take you somewhere you may have never been before and let it inspire your inner poet. Please share what came to life for you through your pen. We look forward to reading all your wonderful words.If you have a prompt idea (even a Music or Film inspired one) that you would like to suggest or share with us please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org . We keep a folder set aside with all your suggestions and just might use it one day.
