Of the silvery moon. Ahh a full moon. It woke me up the other night and I found myself gazing out the window at its brightness at 3 a.m. instead of sleeping. It made me think of one of my favorite movies – Moonstruck! Bella Luna!
Of course that made me think about the love story and finally awoke my desire to write. Things have been crazy in my day-to-day lately and finding time or energy to write has been difficult.
But somehow at 3 a.m. it came easy, or easier. Just thinking about the movie managed to rouse my muse from her slumber and suddenly words were bubbling to the surface faster than I could get them out of my head and typed onto the screen.
Do songs or movies have that affect on you? Has anything ever jump started your creativity – no matter where you were?
If you haven’t seen Moonstruck I would definitely recommend it, it is so much more than just a love story. Love, laughter and even a few good life lessons, you can’t beat it! Here are a few of my favorite lines:
Ronny – “I love you.”
Loretta – “Snap out of it!”
Rose – “Do you love him, Loretta?”
Loretta – “No Ma.”
Rose – “Good. When you love them they drive you crazy because they know they can.”
Rose – “I just want you to know no matter what you do, you’re gonna die, just like everybody else.”
Cosmo – “Thank you, Rose.”
And my all time favorite:
Rose – “Old man, you give those dogs another piece of my food and I’m gonna kick you ’til you’re dead!”
TGIF! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
