Last week, Mr. Humphries and I "redboxed" the movie "Midnight in Paris," starring Owen Wilson.
I was skeptical about it because I have never been a huge Woody Allen fan. But hey, it had Paris in the title so I had to get it. It was so lovely. It's about this writer who goes to Paris and ends up going back in time to meet some of the greatest writers and artists from the 1920's: Hemingway, Fitzgerald, Picasso, Dali, and others. They help him write the novel he has been working on.
Which led me to this brilliant idea... (you feel this one coming?)....I need a trip to Paris! So we promptly turned our passport applications in on Friday. Supposedly, they should be back within two weeks or so...and as soon as we have them in hand, we are jumping ship! I mean jumping on a plane;) We will distribute the children among family, pack for two weeks, and DO IT!
Lately I have been feeling uninspired, weighed down, lost in the doldrums. Really, those are just really nice ways of saying I feel totally freaking crazy and caged. Not just with kids, job, life issues, but with revisions! Life gets like that. I know I am not unique. But I refuse to let my dreams stay on hold for one more year. 2011 was a year of hard work and unfulfilled goals. 2012 will not be that way! Vive le Paris.
Do you need a break? Where would you run off to if you could?
