What has caught my attention is the overall theme showing the daily cost when your artistic voice calls and the more specific theme of revealing the price women pay. I can relate to the film. I understand how artistic pursuits can be put on hold and saved for a time when it won’t take away from family and guaranteed, income careers. Making choices and dealing with guilt are evidenced by my pile of unfinished writing projects. Most of them I’ll never go back to, the trail of those thoughts has grown over like the Mayan ruins obscured by the jungle.
The good news is I’m older, - let me rephrase, – the good news is I’ve paid attention to some lessons gleamed in my life and I now write new thoughts guilt free (until it’s time to make dinner for everyone). I’m better organized and I am no longer too stubborn (picture walking across a frozen piece of water in eight inch stilettos) to ask for help and to admit I’m not superwoman. Asking for help was a big pond for me to cross.
The bad news is I’m not likely to have a chance to see the movie Who Does She Think She Is? in the near future unless they have plans to bring it to Mexico soon. Hope you get a chance to see it. Here’s one of their theatrical trailers to help catch your interest.
