The whole "never is an awfully long time" thing moves me. So does the destitute in Hook's (and Tink's!) face when he realizes that Peter "has found himself a... Wendy. And Hook is all alone." And lines like "you... are a codfish" make me giggle. And Mr. Darling's reference to bravery about how he put away many of his dreams as he locked them in a drawer which gets harder and harder to close after he secretly admires them late at night... yet he still does close the damn thing.
Anyways, I just came across the movie while zapping through channels tonight, and after a dull Turkish Cup soccer game between Galatasaray and Altay, it felt just right.
We have the DVD and every chance I get, I tell the boys that I would like to watch it. Sometimes they agree, more often we end up cracking up at Spongebob or ScoobyDoo. They both do know that I would pick Peter Pan if it was up to me. They make fun of me when I cry at certain scenes, yet I sometimes catch a glimpse of a tear on their faces here and there as well. I want them to know that love is captivating (both in terms of imprisonment and amazement) and liberating at the same time. And I hope, really, truly hope that they are fine with feeling that way.
Our trip was great. A few friends cancelled at the last minute and we were worried about the road conditions for a while, but we made it safe and sound and had a wonderful time with dear friends.
