This week another of Ellis's lovely friends, Lauren 'Jaffa' Jones, sadly lost her fight against CF at jut 22. I'm not going to go on about the sadness and sorrow and the devastating affects that CF causes, as I'm sure you are all well aware of these by now.
Instead I am going to tell you about a film that I watched, the day after hearing the sad news. I have seen this film many times and it was probably one of Ellis's all time favourites. Ellis insisted it must be watched in the original form, with subtitles, as she felt it lost it's meaning when the voices were dubbed over. As always she was right.
Life is Beautiful. Like a fable, there is sorrow and, like a fable, it is full of wonder and happiness.
