The new movie set for release November 22 about Mr. Rogers looks pretty interesting!!

Not a documentary (that came out last year) or a "bio pic", it's mostly about a few still really radical ideas.

That feelings matter.

That kindness matters.

That being "cool" and cynical does not have to be the default position for living life well.

That trying to be a good person . . . a better person . . . is not just OK. It's the central moral task that makes us progressively and more deeply human.

And that overcoming ACEs (adverse childhood experiences) is not only possible . . . it can be transformative. For ourselves and for those around us too.

I'm thinking I'll want to see this movie!

And . . . I so often think that right here, right now, and for adults not kids -- this remarkable Spark community creates beautiful days in our very own virtual neighbourhood!
