“It’s not for sissies you know, dining alone, the trick is to seem mysterious, like the choice is yours.”
Lines from my all-time favorite movie.
Which I’m sure I’ve mentioned here.
Recently on an afternoon trip to the other side of the tracks in a little town near mine.
Some call little Switzerland…because of how it is nestled into the mountains.
Those lines came back to me as I sat alone in a little outdoor café treating myself to lunch.
And for the first time since Richard went home I felt like I could watch our movie. And I did…and it made me feel stronger, because I did it without crying. :)
And I found an even deeper connection to it as I realized something I never thought about before.
To help overcome her loss the main character of the movie takes up photography. :)
It’s like the movie morphed with my life circumstance. I once related to it because it was so similar to our love story. Now I relate to it because I’m at a beginning again.
And I watch it with a totally different eye, and see things I’ve never noticed before.
I thought I would never be able to watch it again.
That’s why this is a big deal to me.
It feels like I found a lost treasure....Like I got an old friend back. :)
PS. I love the little heart cloud in the first picture. I started calling stuff like that….Winks from God. :)
