“I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.’
— Martin Luther King, Jr., “I Have a Dream,” delivered August 28, 1963
Recently I watched the movie “Christopher Robin”. It was a wonderful example of how sometimes adults forget how to enjoy life because they are so very involved in problems and worries.
I had to pause the dvd quite often to write down various quotes from Pooh and others.
One scene that especially spoke to my heart was when Pooh wanted a red balloon because “red balloons made him happy” and grown up, now burdened down, worldly Christopher Robin, got frustrated and said “ there’s more to happiness than a red balloon”
How sad it is to view life that way.
I am much more inclined to grab a red balloon and dance thru life with Pooh Bear! 😊🎈
Took this photo of my family’s pets, (grandson and grand-daughter’s cats) all sitting together seeming to be having a meeting of the minds–probably regarding whose attention they could grab to give them some food in their empty bowl! 😃
(I was inspired to write this poem after listening to “A Million Dreams” Song from the movie “The Greatest Showman” and I added it to a paper collage piece I was working on that the song also inspired me to create😩)
