‘People die. The love, the joy, the wonder does not die. The ephemeral nature of our existence creates this power, and we keep the joy of the fleeting touch within us, and carry it with us for the rest of our journey. I hope so, anyway’.
This a delicate testimony of how love is able to overcome death.
All of us should read this book, give it to our loved ones, open it on a random page when we are depressed, disappointed or upset.
Thanks, Clare and Greg.
Greg has revealed that Emma persuaded him to turn down a film deal to take part in Strictly Come Dancing.
He admitted he had been deliberating over whether to take part in the BBC One ballroom competition as he already had a movie in the pipeline that would have been quite nicely paid.
In the end he opted for the TV show, paying homage to the memory of his sister, a great dance enthusiast.
For the Italian fans, on TV tonight ❤️
Greg Wise is taking to the stage, in memory of his sister. “My beautiful sister was a huge disco queen,” he said. “She left our world almost exactly 5 years ago in a glitter ball coffin. This is for her. My gorgeous Diva sis, who would have been insane with excitement that her little bro was doing this.“
We are all rooting for him! 🍀
The Indian actress Shabana Azmi, who has acted in more than one hundred Hindi films, said Emma was all that she expected her to be, and more – warm, generous, socially conscious and funny.
Thank you Emma, you’re always so kind and giving with your fans. You’re a wonderful human being, and I love you for that! ❤️
The Winter Guest was filmed at Elie and Pittenweem.
The town scenes were filmed in Pittenweem, a charming fishing village in the East Neuk of Fife.
The beach scenes were filmed upon the shores of a picturesque Scottish seaside town in the icy depths of winter, around Elie in Fife. Both the lighthouse and the beach next to the car park appear in the movie.
