Day 29, January 29

I admit it:  I'm a romantic.  Which probably accounts for why I write and read romance.  So when I ran across the nugget that Walt Disney's SLEEPING BEAUTY was released on this day in 1959, I knew I had to share it.

Who can resist the tale of a prince bringing a princess back to life with a kiss?  I can't.  I remain as entranced with the story today as I was more than fifty years ago.  And I cry each time I see the movie.

But it is not only the romance of the movie that moves me.  It is also the simple but profound concept of good triumphing over evil.  In a world where selfishness, greed, and corruption are too frequently accepted, even applauded, I am drawn to anything that unabashedly celebrates the victory of that which is good and right and pure.

So, for today, I am grateful for Disney's vision in creating SLEEPING BEAUTY.

  1. OK, but I still think that Flora, Fauna, and Merriweather were dimwitted when they left Aurora alone.
