Weird things happen when I go and watch movies.
When I saw Planet of the Apes it made me question human beings and how we treat each other. Watching X-men Apocalypse sent me wondering about whether to talk to our younger self or our older self talking to us as we are now.
Then I watched Wonder Woman ...
Wonder Woman was my hero- when I was 6 I wrote to Jim'll Fix It (not going into his misdemeanors) and wanted to do the spin and be her as I'm sure many girls also did.
I loved the TV show, have been likened to her a number of times (makes me chuckle) and was super excited about the new movie.
Gal Gadot - what an amazing actress for the role, beautiful woman, great sensual physique, and such an innocence too.
I personally loved the movie, I'm sure there'll be critics of it and so be it- each to their own opinion. From my love of Wonder Woman from a young age it really did make me think. No surprises there that I think hey!!
Humans mainly - who we all are - how we treat each other and ourselves - what influence we can all have in this world. I know I can't 'save' the world, no one can. I do think there's some saving to be done but where does that start?
How we behave to each other, to ourselves, the way we treat other animals on the planet and how we treat the planet.
Too deep? Maybe. But that's my thoughts after watching the movie.
Yes there's horrible atrocities in the world and inside of each of us is a darker side - but also in each of us is goodness. We all have an inner goddess or god, a part of us that can influence those around us for the 'better'.
It depends if we chose to see that in ourselves or live life only for ourselves.
I blog, do the job I do, draw, model etc etc with the aim of bringing joy to others. I don't often know which may do what - what influence I have, but that's my intention. I can't change the political situation of the world, take away the pain of losing someone, stop war, famine or slavery.
But what I can do is leave whatever in situation I am for the better.
I don't profess I do this all the time - I have my moods and can be sharp with my tongue and I know when I have been. Not ideal but nothing is perfect - I am at least doing the best I can to be the best person I can be.
Did I really get all this from a DC comic movie ? Yup I honestly did ...
