My Life in Words
I struggled with the idea of touching politics. A place I don’t want to go. Then I remembered a day in the life of my little 6-year-old daughter.
#The Sound of Music movie credits had rolled, the theater lights came on, the Von Trapp family had hiked over the alps to escape Germany and to enter Switzerland.
My little daughter turned to me and asked: “Would we be that brave?”
I don’t know.
I know that people have an instinct to run to the rescue.
I know that beneath layers of injustice, injury, and persecution can come a person of power and influence.
I know that people want to love one another if given half a chance.
These people exist--don't forget it.
PPS. The Sound of Music was initially released to terrible reviews who called it too saccharine and then the film went on to become one of the all-time best-loved movies winning 12 Academy awards, with the indomitable Julie Andrews pulling out all stops.
Who doesn’t love music, dance, love, exquisite scenery, and courage? I saw myself as Mother Superior singing “Climb Every Mountain,“ but I didn’t have the voice or range of Patrica Neway, but neither did Peggy Wood who played the part. (Nor was I her age when the movie was made.)
I don’t care that the story varies from the true Von Trapp family, it’s a heart-warming story, and Hollywood takes license when a film is “Inspired-by.”
The true Von Trapp family.
How about a little help from my friends.
I must sell 200 copies of my book or they will drop me like a S'More too long on the fire.
Find the cheapest book The Frog's Song available, Kindle, physical copy. I don’t care for I’m more interested in book sale numbers than money.
Make sure you get the correct Frog Book, there is one that sells for $135.00.
