People Just as Crazy as Me

I see the light - Lyrics - Yeah, you know me, this shouldn't be a surprise.

"All those days watching from the windows
All those years outside looking in
All that time never even knowing
Just how blind I've been
Now I'm here, blinking in the starlight
Now I'm here, suddenly I see
Standing here, it's all so clear
I'm where I'm meant to be
And at last I see the light
And it's like the fog has lifted
And at last I see the light
And it's like the sky is new
And it's warm and real and bright
And the world has somehow shifted
All at once everything looks different
Now that I see you

All those days chasing down a daydream
All those years living in a blur
All that time never truly seeing
Things, the way they were
Now she's here shining in the starlight
Now she's here, suddenly I know
If she's here it's crystal clear
I'm where I'm meant to go
And at last I see the light
And it's like the fog is lifted

And at last I see the light
And it's like the sky is new
And it's warm and real and bright
And the world has somehow shifted
All at once, everything is different
Now that I see you, now that I see you"



The above is from Disney's Tangled.
Yeah, start laughing now, I laugh about this too.
My son, loves this movie, not like I gotta see it every day, mama!
But, he never says "no" when I ask to put it on.
Secretly, he loves it just as much as I do.
Especially with the goofy grin he sports while watching it.
(Or perhaps he's laughing at me on the inside, I wouldn't doubt that either!)

Somehow, the overlords at Disney heard mothers around the world praying, "Please make a traditional Disney flick, like from when I was a kid."
Because, that's what this was, traditionally a Disney movie, singing and hysterical animals.
I miss these movies, somehow, they got away from them... demographic wasn't calling for it?
They should do more of these. Seriously.

The song above, was drawn on a lake, with a million floating lit laterns around the two characters.
Floating lanterns are a traditional ceremony and are known as a Vinyan.
You light the lantern and send it up to the heavens, making a wish that a lost loved one or a dead loved one's soul  finds peace. Or in case of a missing loved one, finds there way home.

It was beautiful.
The song is beautiful.
And I am a sentimental old fool.

Sharing a little bit of my soul right now.
Little awkward.
But I don't care.
