It's been a lovely quiet and sunny day. I saw 'The Butler'. It's a nice movie but somehow failed to move me as it aimed to do I think. From what I've read I understand that much of the story is fiction loosely based on the real White House butler. Still it's worth watching once. It's funny how you seem to blink just once and a whole day passes by. War and Peace is as riveting as ever and I'm reaching the end. One of the characters just died and somehow Tolstoy managed to not make me feel sadness or pity. He's really brilliant. I will go back to my book now.
