your way...

If you read yesterday’s story, you’ll know Brian was assuming we’d head in the direction of a romantic comedy for our evening movie choice. 

But… it was my turn to choose the movie, and so we ended up watching The Professor and the Madman (totally panned by critics for all sorts of valid reasons, but since we are etymology nerds and value our tattered edition of the Oxford English Dictionary that we unexpectedly found at Powells on a rainy afternoon… we appreciated the history behind the story).

It wasn’t just the process of how this most magnificent dictionary was written… it was a willingness to follow instinct despite the pressure of status quo… the examination of science and mental health healing… the importance of kindness in the most inhumane of circumstances… and the ways we can connect, despite countless differences.

Of course it also highlighted the importance of supporting those who have the eyes to see beyond our current ways, and are able to move everyone to a new place of possibility... 

We watch and read so many stories and are reminded that history is made when ordinary people choose to act in extraordinary ways... 

It's not a fairy tale. It's not magic. It's straight up grit. 

always in motion,
