what a great old movie
"never a dull moment"
when you find yourself laughing
totally out loud
and when your heart is touched
in that lovely squishy sweet way
it's a wonderful life
over and over
I didn't want the movie to end
all the crazy antics of
the joy of life
sliding down a banister
when you are all grown up
and writing plays because a typewriter
was mistakenly delivered to the house...
Lionel Barrymore's character Grandpa Van de Hoff (is that right?)
was just a perfect person for me to meet
his harmonica certainly makes a case
for serious "sound therapy"
thanks to my brother Dave
for his gift of introducing me/us
to many movie-treasures otherwise missed
love conquers all and that fabulous dinner scene
at the end of the movie...
I just loved his prayer
and all his prayers before meals
there is an escape into the heart of a movie
that touches real life
if we invite it in
invitation sincerely and heartily sent...
