For my friends and readers, this movie has me “thinking” even though it was a comedy. I enjoy my garden. I enjoy my friendships. It is great to know just how much the world and G-d provides when we allow things to be and to relax and enjoy. Yes, I believe we all need to work hard to get benefits, but sometimes the benefits are in the areas we do not necessarily recognize on first glance.
Recently, my husband and I were able to take time to have a date night. The stars aligned (it was a full moon I believe!) and Wonderlust was the next movie of our “acceptable” list… I laughed through the entire movie. So did husband. We shared quite a few inside jokes based on the movie… mostly surrounding me (in some similarity to Jennifer Anniston’s character) and my desire to live on a commune and my new “projects” and plans that come through every few months. But, I do work full time and I do have kids, so I guess it isn’t exactly the same.I’m not a movie preview watcher (I find that when I do catch a full preview, when I later watch the movie, I know all the punch lines and the story line… what’s the point!?) so I had no idea going in just how much I would enjoy this movie.
