I was incredibly sad when I found out actor, Bruno Ganz died. He played a favorite role in one of my favorite movies, the angel Damiel in Wim Wenders Wings of Desire (1987). A link to a still from the movie follows.

The cinematographer, Henri Alekan, filmed years/generations earlier for Wings of Desire was the same as for Beauty and the Beast filmed years/generations earlier. Another favorite movie.
Damiel was an angel who falls in love with a trapeze artist and wishes to become human to be with her. It was my fondest wish to be known fully and loved for myself. So romantic. Such a fantasy.
Sometimes I don't know myself. I was clearing out a drawer at work because it wouldn't stay shut anymore. I was surprised as I started pulling out many dried, clean, crumpled paper towels and napkins. Why were they there? How did they even get there? What was I doing accumulating so very many? I collected a very full plastic shopping bag to take home. We have a glass "candy jar" of napkins such as these to mop out grease from pots and pans before they are submerged in soapy water.
I realized the napkins were from wrapping plastic ware I washed up at work. When they were dry I would put the whole batch in the drawer.
Another a favorite artist from the film is Nick Cave. Here is a scene from the movie featuring his songs.
