I just watched The Company and I really liked it. Dance is a passion I always wish I'd had the right to have. The pieces were fabulous and gorgeous, and I wanted to go out and take a class. But that's something I could definitely never do alone. There are many things I can do solo, including seeing movies and eating in restaurants. But taking a dance class, or working out...anything aerobic, really...and I can't do it on my own. It scares me shitless and I need something from my comfort zone.

Enough about that...the movie was really good.

Before that, I watched Saved! which is a personal favorite. The cast is just fantastic, and I love the ending. Families come in all shapes and sizes. It's lovely.

And now, in my extreme dance-minded euphoria, I shall rest my eyes and dream of better days to come.

Oh goody! I'm so glad you loved The Company. It completely inspired me, but it was more bittersweet because I got to wondering if I'd kept dancing straight on through and been more intense, how good I could've been. Not that I'd trade in the dancer's life for the one I've had--I wouldn't be friends with you, for one thing, unless I did dance troupe (which I fucking highly doubt), for one thing--but still, when you see such beauty and you think, Once, I had the potential to be able to learn to do that..., it's a little saddening. And humbling, too.

And Saved! That ending scene practically makes me sob with longing every time. Family, friends, lovers, exes, babies, all in one place... Who could deny him/herself that!?
