Facing our frail humanity

Last weekend my wife and I watched the movie My House in Umbria starring Maggie Smith. On reflection I feel it is one of the best movies I have watched in the past year or so. There is a richness to the scenery and cinematography that enhances the wonderful acting. To me the movie highlights:

our universal need for forgiveness and redemption, whatever our past

our past history has a significant influence on how we feel and act today

our frail humanity

our desperate hunger for and need for relationship

the (partial) healing power of time, rest, nature, companionship, and food
