In my current state of mind I am, most certainly, very much open to things of sentiment, of remembering, even when it hurts, the good and wonderful things from your past. Have you ever seen "The Trip to Bountiful"?
If you haven't, you must - you MUST. It is so achingly beautiful. So rich, so full, so bittersweet and tender. And Geraldine Page - well, I can't even find the words to describe her. She is not even acting, she is BEING.
I reach for this movie when I need to empty my heart out, and then fill it up again. We all have a Bountiful in our past.
Sometimes we all need to go Home.
