sometimes movies (and television and books) pull us out of our real lives in a way that can distract us from living deeply.

but other times, they give us just the tools we need in a moment to help us open up and feel and move through and be right here.

each time i watch the last movie (or read the seventh book) as harry potter walks through the forest with his parents + sirius + lupin believing he is walking to his death, and sirius points to his chest and says, "we're here you see" (in the book he says, "we're part of you"), each time my heart heals a bit more because i choose to believe he is right...


(as the tears began to fall as they always do when i watch this scene, i was inspired to pick up my camera in this moment by this week's prompt in Meredith and Kristin's Now You workshop.)

Liz, rent the movie, The Way. I promise, it's the most beautiful movie I've seen in a long time.

You can find it on iTunes.

Dear Liz,

Wow... i know this...
All the way across the ocean, i'm right there with you in that moment of seeing (or reading) again (and agian) and choosing to believe the mending 'power' of those words... when i hear them i find myself whispering inside "if only... if only that were true... if only she could be in my heart, then i would not be so alone (i lost my mother when i was very young, and that wound still aches my adult being)... and then i remember that i'm the one who has to invite that truth... and that is comforting... (although hard too, because i have no memories at all of her... but the comfort means a lot already...)

Thanks for sharing!
