Walter Mitty and Other Fantasies

3 years ago

Have you had a little too much reality in 2013?  Too many emails from your boss, your child's teacher, your lawyer?  Have you had some days where you wish you could say goodnight an hour after you've gotten up?  Ahem, I have...and that is why The Secret Life of Walter Mitty had  me levitating in the theatre.

We could all use a little Walter Mitty in our life to help us look forward to 2014.  At the very least we could use Walter's imagination to get us through our return to reality and routine.

Initially, I thought 'really?' It's so crazy I'm not sure I can buy into this on any level.

But as Walter's story unfolds, it's not just his imagination but his courage, compassion and skateboarding skill that will impress and touch your heart.

If Walter has the power not just in his mind than so do you.  If you're in need of a little inspiration for 2014 and not afraid of a little whimsy and imagination go see The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.  The music is great, too.
