Looking Inwardly

"Never be afraid to sit awhile and think."
~Lorraine Hansburry, A Raisin in the Sun

Did you ever watch a movie that left a lasting impression? One that really and honestly made you think?

Maybe you weren't that into the actual film and characters, but perhaps it made you reflect upon and contemplate your own life.

Last night I made a pot of ginger peach tea and settled in with the the pupparoo, hubband, my favorite blankie and watched The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.

At the end, I cried (sniffle).

Why? It got my wheels turning.

Here are some quotes from the movie that are still wondering around in my mind.

"For what it's worth: it's never too late or, in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be. There's no time limit, stop whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you're proud of. If you find that you're not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again."

"Our lives are defined by opportunities, even the ones we miss."

Just saw this movie last week and felt the same way. I love the quotes you chose... it was an interesting film but some parts were very moving, inspiring, different.

Loved the quote. I can really relate to it, especially the last part. Now I need to see the movie.
Love your writings and pictures...again, you need to be published!
P.S. Love the phone!
