I have just seen 'James and the giant peach' on DVD... well James lassoes 100 seagulls to carry his giant peach out of the sea and off to New York City. I have also seen 'Up' last week and it has a similar idea but he uses balloons, instead of seagulls and he is lifting up his house and not a giant peach and he goes to South America and not New York City. Anyway the details are a little different but the idea is similar... and I like it.
I like the idea of a lot of small things making something big happen. Each and every one of those small things equals a little bit of hope and together they are like dreams coming true. Sounds a little cheesy but I think it is a nice idea.
For a few minutes about 15 years ago after seeing the Royal New Zealand ballet I dreamed of being a ballerina. But sometimes I think it is better to keep some of those dreams as dreams. Me as a ballerina would be a comedy act... and I am ok with that dream being just a fleeting dream. It is easy to be a dreamer the hard part is deciding which ones to attach seagulls to and which ones to let the seagulls fly by.
