It was made in 2011 and it was so so good.
I highly suggest you watch it.
It is so good!
You get to see all the famous artists and authors of the 1920's.
And of course they all know each other.
But what I really really love about it...
Not only is it quaint and charming.
Not only does it transport you
Not only does it make you dreamy and nostalgic.
It teaches you a lesson.
It teaches you that no matter what time you are from....
It's gonna seem dull.
The past always tends to look a little shiny.
We know how the past ends up.
We know what choices are made.
We know that things usually work out.
We find the past so charming.
I mean we look at pictures
We dream of memories
We long for the contentedness of that "home" feeling.
But we get scared by the future.
We don't know what that holds.
We get scared of what tomorrow may or may not bring...
Sometimes it is easier to think about yesterday than it is to think about tomorrow.
I love how this makes you think that someday someone is going to see something from our now... that makes them see it as shiny.
To be honest?
Sometimes I just want to be a wife, a mom, stay at home.
Clean. Decorate. Take care of the family.
To me that is shiny.
If I were in that situation 50 years ago...
Who knows? Perhaps I would want to work.
Make some money.
Have some independence.
Grass is always greener.
So what I am saying is...
Right now I am stressed.
But in the future this time is going to seem shiny and quaint.
I am going to do the best to really live.
To make today just as shiny as yesterday.
That way when I am old. I can say I really lived.
Things are going to work out.
God has it all planned.
(Yes I have choices)
But why should I be scared of tomorrow...
God is in control.
So for now.
I think I shall just live.
