Bedknobs and Broomsticks in a Snowstorm

One of my Christmas gifts this year was a generous Barnes and Noble gift card from Dad. I used it to buy "Some Like It Hot", "A Night at the Opera" and "Bedknobs and Broomsticks". While I work on polishing my thesis (a nonfiction book of essays) before it officially enters the committee process tomorrow, I thought I could use some of the happy feelings that always come with a viewing of this live-action Disney classic.

The soundtrack alone is enough to fill you with joy and take you back to the purity of childhood

This movie gets me in the emotional core, which is exactly where I need to be to finish this book. It's a movie all about "the age of not believing", the power of imagination,  goodness, and child-like joy. I hope that's what I can say my book will be about too. May the song inspire you as much as it inspires me. Enjoy the snowstorm and keep chugging away on whatever project you've got going...after all, it's a step in the right direction.


Some Like it Hot

Tonight, before my final semester in grad school kicks off, I'm enjoying the special edition of the classic "Some Like It Hot", one of the greatest movies of all time and one that gets a spot on my permanent top ten list.

The special features are amazing and I would highly recommend this version of the film to anyone. This movie comforts and inspires me in so many ways. Have you watched it lately?
