The smell of cooking, the warm sun penetrating our family room, and the crisp morning amble to get the paper start this Thanksgiving day. Yes - I'm thankful and today allows each of us the opportunity to remember what blessings we have.
Last night Jenna, Ellen and I went to "Life of Pi" a movie bound to quickly exit the theater because it is philisophical with no explicit violence, sex, or foul language. Still the special effects were outstanding, and the story was compellingly interesting for the two plus hours of viewing.
I believe a movie is good when you continually recall it - visually, intellectually, and replay it in your mind. Life of Pi might even motivate me to read the book.
The ending is intriguing since the movie deals with Pi's search for God (also fear, faith and religion). When he poses the question to the interogators about his story and replies "and so it goes with God" - the meaning of our lives emerges from Pi's search for God.
Our story can be one we can regret; or that we thankfully remember.
