Follow Your Passion

Some of the most beautiful movie writing has been done by Pixar. I remember the first time they blew me away. Ratatouille. That movie has very deep messaging. If you haven’t had the pleasure, it is the story of a talking rat who dreams of being a chef. He rises to become the head chef of a Paris restaurant, in secret. He is discovered on the same night that top critic Anton Ego pays the restaurant a visit. The next day, his review appears and it is magical.

Save Our Planet

Pixar followed Ratatouille with WALL-E, a masterpiece. Fifty years from now, future generations will look back on a movie like WALL-E and say, so they knew what they were doing to the planet and they kept going anyway? The dystopian future presented is a bleak, depressing landscape with a planet Earth reduced to a garbage dump. A cute little robot has more personality than the human characters. The most precious resource in this movie is a plant.

Accept One Another

And then they made Brave. The opening sequence alone is powerful storytelling and the sound is outrageous. Music sets the Celtic tone and transports you into a legendary world. At its heart, it is the story of mothers and daughters. That special, challenging, dynamic relationship that is more powerful than any other. The princess Merida is completely controlled by her mother. In turn, her mother is desperately trying to provide her daughter with every advantage and opportunity. No one is listening to one another.

Writing about the beautiful journey of life and love. We are all figuring this out together
