So has anyone read this book? Planning on seeing the movie? I would like to do both. However, that's a new desire. I've never been a fan of the idea that you have to go somewhere to find yourself, as it were. I've had quite a few bad experiences with people I know doing that. I definitely see how a change of scenery is good for the soul once in a while, don't get me wrong. Like when we grow up and leave home for one reason or another...we have to learn about the world on our own. Or when we are stuck in a bad situation. Aren't there ways of becoming the person you want to be without going halfway around the world? Without leaving people behind? Maybe. Maybe not. I have mixed feelings. I can relate to the statement in the movie about how she wants to "marvel at something." I try to be conscience of that daily, especially when it comes to watching my children do something, but there hasn't been much marveling lately on a bigger scale. We all know that feeling. I love that feeling. And I would love to see how the book/movie attempts to guide us in doing so. Are there ways of marveling in the lives we currently lead? Seems like there are people who do. Anyways, I'm looking forward to seeing what kind of message both the book and movie send.
