I love writing these blogs about my favorite stories. I get to watch them again and live in them again. A good movie inspires my soul. I hope that you decided to watch the movie again and that it was a richer experience for you.
But I'd like to share some of that richer experience. What did you think about the movie? I'd love to hear back in the comment section. These are our archetypal stories -- like the ancient myths, they tell timeless stories. How did it, or maybe it didn't, affect you?
So please, make a comment and let's see what all of us story-lovers have to say. What experiences or insights did the story guide you to?
After I saw Milagro Beanfield War, we had a water issue come up in the town I lived in. Having that story as a guide, I decided to do two things: (1) write a movie about saving the water in our community--very different from Milagro Beanfield War but using the archetype of community to solve problems and (2) I became a community activist.
The kind of stories we tell ourselves are so important.
So once again - please share!
