A Visit with childhood
I don't remember how old I was when I first saw this movie in a theatre...surely I was under ten. Snipits of it would appear out of nowhere even into adulthood...and I had to own it, again, having given my original copy to my grandchildren.
Whether it's the grin of the Cheshire Cat I'd see in a Crescent Moon, Alice's chase of the White Rabbit, I'd recall every time I'd run to see what my grandchildren were up to when they ran through my kitchen ignoring the hot cookies I'd just taken from the oven, or the Tea Party I'd fix where we'd sing, "A Very Merry Unbirthday" my love of this film endured all through my life.
In today's complex, crazy world it is so easy to forget how simple life was in our youth. Many today say, take time to smell the flowers...I'd agree, but encourage you to find your favorite Disney movie, and watch it every time the world encroaches on your peace of mind...it's cathartic! Kids today are too involved in today's world...it robs them of their childhood...Disney's films endure and celebrate what is great about childhood...sit down with your children or grandchildren and watch some of the wonderful, old cartoon features...and recapture your own youth.
