Safety Not Guaranteed

Sunday, March 30, 2014

I just have to give this movie one of the most heart-felt shout outs and and jump up & downs I've had over a movie in a long, long time. I knew way back when it came out that this was going to be a special movie. Check out the reviews below and see the trailer on YouTube:

FINALLY our local library had the DVD among its rentals! The sense of wonder, excitement, curiosity, anticipation and enthrallment over the progression of characters and relationships had me smiling in empathy and laughing at loud at points throughout the movie.

Check you logic and critical judgment at the door before viewing and come along for the joyous ride that this movie offers!!

It brought me back to my childhood days of swimming in Lake Michigan beyond the buoy into the thrilling depths beyond and re-kindled my fondness for quotes such as these:

"When I grow up I want to be a little boy." Joseph Heller

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” Mark Twain

"Run from what's comfortable. Forget safety. Live where you fear to live. Destroy your reputation. Be notorious. I have tried prudent planning long enough. From now on I'll be mad." -Rumi, as recently shared by SONGBUDDHA & VALERIEMAHA

And on such high notes take a musical trip with this high-energy, heartfelt concert with Brasilian masters Ivan Lins, Joao Bosco and Cuban pianist Gonzalo Rubacalba! It is such a blast! Get up and MOVE! How wonderful to have music such as this by world-class masters!!

Spark Through Your Sunday everyone!!

    Don, for never failing us in bringing us all the "bestest of all the restest"! I've got the Lins/Bosco/Rubalcaba concert playing right now - WOWZERS!!! Magical, magical stuff, though at 9:45 PM, it'll probably keep me wide-awake for the remainder of the evening! I also loved your Joseph Heller (what a master!) quote: "When I grow up I want to be a little boy." If one thing's surprised me the older I get, it's that with each passing year, I feel just a little more in touch with the "kid version" of myself - so enjoyable! emoticon

    I feel that I live this quote whenever I'm on my bike: "When I grow up I want to be a little boy!" Thanks for sharing, Don.

    Don, I looked at the Youtube preview on this and it seems very heartwarming and down to earth.

Here's one for you: Mr. Nobody. A little more intense for sure. Loved it!

    Sounds like an awesome movie!! I saw that trailer just fine, but the music video didn't work, started then stalled and quit with an error message :(( Will try later, going out in the blowing snow and cold to mall crawl!! Not my favorite activity but walking outside is too dangerous very icy from the previous snow melt and freeze up.
Enjoy your day!
