Last Friday night while James was visiting with his dad, I stayed in and finally had the chance to watch Splendor in the Grass (which I had on my DVR since August) with Natalie Wood and Warren Beaty. I had seen it once before, however it was like seeing it for the first time again. If you havent had the chance to see it, you should. It’s a heartbreaking love story…the title was taken from this poem, which says it all.
“What though the radiance which was once so bright
Be now for ever taken from my sight,
Though nothing can bring back the hour
Of splendour in the grass, of glory in the flower;
We will grieve not, rather find
Strength in what remains behind”.
--- William Wordsworth
