the power of believing

Just watched Finding Neverland last night with Nathan, my second time seeing it. It really is such a beautiful story (based on true events) about all different people making their own family, and needing each other, recovering from pain and loss. It also is about believing and the power of the imagination.

In a world of pain and lost hope, I found it beautiful and moving.

J.M. Barie, from the film:
"Just. What a horrible, candle-snuffing word. That's like saying, 'He can't climb that mountain. He's just a man. Or, that's not a diamond. It's just a rock.'"

is it not heights of irony when 'just' becomes unjust? and the value of justice becomes devalued when it's 'just' another value?

looking forward to seeing 'finding neverland' - have heard great things about it as a rejuvenating flick. which we all need ...

wow - i'm so far behind on in-theatre movies that one of the last ones i saw was 'polar express'! yikes!
