About Time

Yesterday I went to see the movie About Time.  I’m not much of a sentimentalist (or maybe I am), but I have always enjoyed and come back to Richard Curtis’ movies (Love Actually and Nottinghill, for example) simply because they’re simply because.


In their simplicity, I find elegance and safety for the exploration of those feelings that poke hard at the heart – love and loss, time passing, chances taken and chances missed – in other words, life in the ordinary trenches rather than the war-gouged ones.  I like that.

So I give About Time a thumbs up, taking away some thoughtful reflection on things that really do matter. . .

About time . . . about second chances . . . remembering that no choice is consequence free . . . coming to the place where there is no turning back . . . making room for the generations . . . the face of grief . . . rewriting the script of our lives if we but could . . . allowing others to live their lives unimpeded by our best intentions . . . learning and relearning that life goes on – and that it should . . . certain days in our lives really were magic . . . even things ‘meant to be’ require work and effort in order to be . . . being alive is being aware . . . there is laughter even in rain . . . who or what is best for us is not always obvious to us . . . the best days are the days you know you’re loved and you love . . .
