Every-so-often as a writer you run across something that brings tears to your eyes and rouses your spirit. A piece that makes you say, ” This is why I write, I wish I could write like that, or Thank God for writers!”
This morning I was surfing the internet looking for inspiration. I have a couple things pending, and I always like to either publish something positive to follow-up or even neutralize a negative. I came across a movie trailer for “The Best Man Holiday”. I was in a nostalgic type mood and recalled how much I enjoyed the first film as I found myself laughing aloud at this current trailer. It was early and I decided, I would go.
The theater was rather full for a Friday morning. The audience was well mixed. I expected different in Gwinnett County Georgia. Picking up years later you felt like you were going home for the holidays. You watched these endearing, intelligent diverse, funny characters maneuver around LIFE happening to them. The wonderful familiar faces, charming personalities, and a smart script made you laugh, cry, and warmed your heart.
If you want to do something for yourself today, treat yourself to a quick visit to the forthcoming holidays, that will remind you what “the holidays ” are all about. A film that will help you reflect on sharing with friends, family, and gives tribute to the human spirit. Don’t take my word for it, go see it!!!
