say what you need to say...

I finally watched The Bucket List last night. I had heard mixed reviews so held off for a while because my expectations for movies tend to be high (I'd rather read the book) and I didn't want to be disappointed. Especially when the topic hits close to home. I was pleased with the subtle messages of what is really important in life as they crossed the activities off of their list. Not entirely in the way they had planned. It was an entertaining, feel good movie (despite the topic) and, well, Morgan Freeman can make even a commercial sound deeply profound. The accompanying John Mayer song says it best..."even when your eyes are closing, do it with a heart wide open..."
