Making It

I Just finished watching The Day After Tomorrow.  I don't know why I do this to myself.  Movies like that make me want to run and huddle in a room with my family.  They fill me with fear and paralyze any dreams of spontaneous living.  I am not kidding.  This is why I stay away from legal dramas, sci fi flicks, horror, and anything with more suspense than Green Eggs and Ham.  I know that watching this movie will make me feel like the end of the world is at my door step.  Yet I still sit paralyzed by the promise made from father to son,

"I will come for you, do you understand me? I will come for you. "  

I have seen this movie before and it doesn't make sense that I would put myself through this torment again. Then it happens.  The end.

 "Who is that?" 
  "My father. You made it." 
 "Of course I did. "
I grab my face and press the tears in.  The reminder that there was someone in my life that loved me like that.  Don't get me wrong I had a mother who would do anything for me and I am eternally grateful for.  Yet, there has always been a missing piece.  That father - making it.  Even through death.

Next movie: Pride & prejudice (Yes the 5 hour one.)  What cinematic torment do you endure?

I have watch "The Day After Tomorrow" and enjoy the story line very much. I am looking forward to watch "Pride & Prejudice" later. I heard about this before, but never got chance to watch. 5 hours duration? It's LOnger than Bollywood movie. BTW, you may have miss my latest post.
