It's my birthday.
And the day of birth of this weblog.
I'm a moviefreak.
Which means that this occasion inevitably reminds me of something movie-related.
"Lumiere" means "light" in French.
And really, what are movies but compositions in light?
So, it's a fabulously fitting coincidence that the birth of the movies occurred, in 1895, at the hands of Pierre and Auguste Lumiere.
