Today I went to see "The Blind Side." It was amazing. No more details than that because I want you all to see it. The tough mom reminds me of my mother and my little brother Taran especially (and Urchin, also) would be awesome bros for Big Mike. In any case, I want to talk about something different, namely....
New York Achdus.
I absolutely love going to crowded movie theaters. I went to the opening night of "The Dark Knight" - the 12:00 AM premiere- and I absolutely adored it for various reasons. And today was similar. You see, when New Yorkers get together in a crowded movie theater, they laugh, cry, gasp, swear, make comments and just interact with the screen in a way that is so fantastic to behold. We all unite. We're there together- experiencing, enjoying, loving and shocked. We're a family for that moment in time and it binds us together. And I love that. That is one of my favorite parts of New York. I love that feeling, when the love spills over and we're in everything together.
Ah, New York, my home, my home, my home.
