I might enjoy this more were the two women pictured not movie stars. (Why not Doris Lessing or Judy Blume or Maggie Thatcher or anyone who, we’d know, are not likely reading a script or a source for a movie?)
But the sentiment is right on.
Just answered a question in a blog interview about why I wrote for kids instead of grown ups. And thought of the much-quoted C.S. Lewis bit from “On Story”
“When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.”
That will explain it very nicely, thank you.
Yes, a kitty gif. BECAUSE. But this is what our new cat, Maeby, does when she plays.
This gif has increased my level of happiness exponentially. The more I watch it, the happier I get.
Never mind the movies; these hundred-year–old adventure tales remain as vibrant (if a bit overwritten) as they were back when they were first published. There’s very little of these stories behind The Blood Guard, but they are in its deep DNA. It was a love of the novels of Edgar Rice Burroughs that got the young me seriously hooked on reading.
