Christmas time and going to the movies are synonymous. Movies release during the holidays and people take time away from busy schedules to go see them. Movies take us away from the hustle and bustle of traffic and crowded stores and hot kitchens. Movies take us to far away galaxies and transport us to other worlds. Movies suspend reality, make us laugh and cry and can satisfy or disappoint. We root for heroes and cheer when the bad guy gets his just desserts. We live vicariously through the activities in movies be they travel, romance, eating, bravery or humor. Sometimes movies are just the ticket to uplift a spirit and soothe us when we are stressed. Sound like anything else you know? Yep! FOOD! Food can suspend reality, make us laugh and cry and can satisfy or disappoint. That is one of the reasons I enjoy both movies and cooking.
I hope you take the time, Dear Readers, to suspend reality over the coming few days to help you relax and soothe your spirit.
