I remember the day we plugged ours in and the fun began. Our very first movie.... Two of a Kind. In our town there was one movie rental place. I became a connoisseur of the 3 day rentals. Friday came with the knowledge that I would accompany my mom to pick out the weekend 5. Oh yes, five spectacular movies guaranteed to more than likely scare the snot out of me and keep me awake listening for the monsters under my bed, in my closet, and scraping their evil claws outside my window. Yes, I was intrigued by the horror, the graphic, the scary, the intense, the anticipation of what was around the next corner kind of movie that would have me on the edge of my seat and screaming. Lots of fun! I don't watch those any longer. Are you kidding? Living alone and watching a scary movie is the equivalent of drinking 12 cups of coffee. Plus, I don't like putting images into my subconscious that might materialize in the dream-state. Freddy need not hop in my dreams,
or Jack with his ax.
I watch movies before I go to sleep. Usually a good Sandler movie, superhero stuff, or intense drama. For those of you who haven't seen The Power of One, you're missing out. Now, add it to your Netflix cue before you continue reading. Done... great... let's continue. We all have our favorites. We all grew with Star Wars. Goonies never say die. And most of us know what it means to "be back in time."
My latest indulgence...... I had the joy of watching a movie recently, titled "Inception." First, I'm not a Dicaprio fanatic. He forever looks twelve to me, and he'll always be the kid Mike Seaver used to know.
Second, thank you, Evelyn and Dave, you guys are the best! Anyway, back to the movie. This movie is about dreams. I love dreams! I dream graphically in what seems to be a motion picture type setting. This is why I'm more careful about what I watch. No scary movies. Inception still won't leave me. Dreams within dreams. Levels of dreaming. Creating reality within ourselves. Reality. Hmmm. Reality for the dreamer is limited only to the imagination. My writing usually becomes part of my dreams. My characters become so real that I dream about their lives. It does tend to inspire page after page. So.......
Time to dream. Reality awaits!
