UP Knocked Me Down

... at least, temporarily.

It's taken me a few days to decide that I really did like the movie, UP. I probably won't watch it again, but I did like the movie.

I'd read some reviews prior to viewing, so I knew that it was a bit more than just another animated movie for kids, but I was not prepared for the extended introduction that ended in me hiccuping and sobbing as I pulled one tissue after another out of the box. Life... when viewed through a Disney-Pixar animated film... can be so beautiful, and so sad.... so beautifully sadly beautiful...


Anyway, what UP's animated hero, Carl, did is only what we hope our loved ones will do once we have passed on.

Continue celebrating life.

And it's a daily lesson, because we just never know what's around the corner, or just how far we'll get, so as a way of honoring all our loved ones--the living and the dead...

Keep celebrating life.
