On a seemingly side note, while some of you may not know about my Gene Kelly love, I want you to know how real it is. He is/was one of my favorite entertainers and always will be. He was a graceful, but not girlish, man. He was strong and robust while being light on his feet. You just do not see that balance now in the dance world as much! He was a face for his times in the entertainment industry. I wish I lived then when dance was prominent in movies. I own a few Gene Kelly movies, and hope to own all of them one day. There is something about his stage presence that refreshes me!
When I found out An American in Paris with Gene Kelly was playing this year for Free Movie Mondays my heart raced with excitement. I can picture the snacks and the wine I will bring as I sit and soak that in. If no one can join me, you will still see me on a picnic blanket sipping my wine alone. I might even tear up at the perfection of the moment designed for me! Have you ever felt like something was so wonderful it overwhelmed you? Have you ever found an activity that spoke deeply to your soul? I know it sounds like I am exaggerating, but I swear to you it really blesses me. God brings us each different things to give us joy, and this just happens to be one of my things!
You want to join me for any of these movies?
Please feel free to come sit next to me on my blanket and enjoy with me!
Just let me know you are coming, and grab a glass to share my wine :)
