the next great screenwriter

J's family has a cabin up in some mountains where it is so nice to go and relax, and we got to go this last weekend!  It was great.  One thing we did while there was play with Rory's Story Cubes (thanks Michael and Brooke!), and let me tell you - we could totally write movies.  Potential plots include...
  • magic wishing well - medieval time period - peasant girl - peasant dad who sells chicken products - If you take a coin out of the magic wishing well, you become of the same economic status as the person who threw it in.  
  • medicine man named Wolf Who Howls At The Moon - Indian tribe that was friends with Pocahontas - lightning fire - magical moon tears
  • The Girl in the Red Baseball Cap - a ghost - 15 years old
  • fairy wands that either explode or turn into new fairies in fire
  • cavemen - the discovery of magnets - kind of like a compass that points "family"
If you steal our ideas, I'll go Hugo-The-Boy-Detective-Who's-Only-Trying-To-Prove-Himself-When-He-Finds-A-Dead-Body on you.

"As soon as... you are rejected, left alone, or abandoned for a short time, you might find yourself thinking, 'Well, that proves once again that I am a nobody.'  What you need to realize is, these other people are NOT worthy of YOU.  Self-rejection is the greatest enemy of emotional growth because it contradicts the sacred inner voice that calls you 'worthy.'  And being worthy constitutes the core truth of every human existence. Say it out loud if you have to:  'This is my journey, and I am worthy of the trip.'" - Marc & Angel Hack Life
