I watched Maleficient today. An interesting way to capture the hearts of a thousand children, while letting them know that true love doesn't come as a package of a kiss of a young man. A motherly love is a love without boundary, that only a mother or a woman can understand. I will let my nieces watches this movie. Whoa! At least they could understand that they need not wait for the knight riding a white horse to make them feel complete. How feminist, I am today! And I love it every bit.
Anyway, watching this movie brought back many memories. I remembered reading story books full of drawing and colors, when I was very young. The books were the door of limitless imaginations. The creatures drawn in those books came into life once I opened up the first page. They were talking and sharing their stories. I was living a tale by tale until the last page. Those feelings rarely come around these days. I wish to feel it again, to enjoy and ventures the world of the unknown and be captivated by the beauty of the kingdom, by the charm of a prince and the loveliness of a princess. Or live a life of a peasant who comes across many adventures by himself; fighting the dragon and finally learn something new about himself.
How I wish!
