Me Too...

There is so much to be said on this subject, and speaking from experience, simply being able to hear other people's stories can have a huge impact on healing. So, yes, just the fact that women are speaking out, will in itself help other victims. So for this post, I am simply sharing my own stories. And of course the specific point of #metoo is to shed light on the magnitude of the problem. I don't know what the solution is, but I do hope that this helps in some small way, if only to help some of my readers to feel as if they're not alone, and that healing is possible.

Have you ever been sexually harassed or assaulted? Me too...

With the phrase "grab them by the pussy" reverberating since the presidential election (unfortunately) and new and disgusting details of the Weinstein scandal surfacing by the day, it is hard to keep anxieties at bay.

Music Monday: "Let It Go" by Elsa on Disney's Frozen performed by Idina Menzel


Disney's latest hit animated film Frozen is one of the best in a long time. My girls and I got to see it in theaters, and we were all very impressed. The imagery and music is so beautiful, it's worth seeing on the big screen. In "Let It Go", the biggest musical number of the film, the eldest sister Elsa flees the kingdom after accidentally unleashing her power over ice and snow. In the movie they refer to it as Elsa's curse because it has caused her to hurt people including her own sister Anna, but a very wise mentor once told me that our biggest weaknesses are often our gifts which are merely out of balance, whether stifled or grown out of control. In Elsa's case, her fear of her powers leads her to extreme restraint, shutting away her gift and shutting everyone out of her life. When Elsa is free to use her gift, she completely blossoms. Well, then she goes a wee bit out of control before the whole thing is over. Through her sister's unconditional love, she finds a way to undo the damage she has caused and learns to control her abilities. Her curse becomes a blessing to her family and the entire kingdom. If you have children and have yet to see Frozen, I encourage you to go see it.

For music Monday, we have the big number by Elsa, performed by Idina Menzel. The soundtrack has many other lovely numbers and is available for purchase. Click here to buy the Frozen soundtrack.

  1. It seems the animation companies are finally going back to casting voice actors who aren't big Hollywood names but who suit the characters. I know Idina's work from elsewhere, and she has a good singing voice.
