My husband and I are typically the people in the movie theater without little kids in tow. As much as I wanted to see this movie in a theater, we decided to wait until it came on cable. And so it is.
What I related to in the movie is when Rapunzel throws herself back and forth along with her emotional outbursts.
“I am a good person.” “I’m such a bad daughter.” “I know what I’m doing.” “What am I doing?”
I knew exactly how she felt on all counts. As I look back on some of my writings, every other day seems to be happy, while the other days I’m a little on the brink.
While most people would rate this as being crazy, I see it as normal; others are just not ready to admit they do the same thing, wanting to declare their sanity. But I must admit, at times I do feel a bit wacky; however, that is when I am the most creative, it seems.
Not to worry, though; I am in great company. Georgia O’Keefe. Pablo Picasso. Jackson Pollock. Charles Schulz. Vincent van Gogh. Samuel Morse. Henry Cavendish. Andrew Jackson.
And this week, just days before my son’s wedding, I’ll play up the fact that I’m a bit wacky -- WATCHIT!
Seriously, I found an article I wrote in 2007, or more so an inspiration document created of short spurts of words, musings, and quotes. I began this article two days ago and was astounded to find the same conclusion in the document of four years ago!
I must admit to feeling a bit “tangled” these days while many high and low emotions seem to wrangle me a bit helpless. I can only hope friends and family will understand the “changing of the (inside) guards.”
