89th Academy Awards

An unexciting post for a largely unexciting Oscar year. La La Land is going to lap up Oscars left, right and centre this year. A movie which is all the more special to me because I watched it in a nice and cozy theater with my now fiancĂ©, on an evening made even more special as we drove around the city past midnight with it's soundtrack softly humming on our car's stereo. :)

City of Stars
Are you shining just for me?

A rush
A glance
A touch
A dance

A look in somebody's eyes
To light up the skies
To open the world and send it reeling
A voice that says, I'll be here
And you'll be alright
