to recommend the new Disney movie, The Princess and the Frog! What a delight! It truly was as advertised; ready to take its place among the other Disney classics. A true test for me was that, as I was entranced by its charm, I also had the thought "I can't wait 'til this comes out on video".
I think among all my favorite parts, and there are many, there was a particularly magical scene with fireflies lighting the way through the bayou. You must see this; amazing!
And the music was delightful. As Miranda commented, "It's nice to have some new Disney music to fall in love with".
I think the most lasting influence of this movie will be that I think I will finally find a way to make it to New Orleans. It is funny how some places continue to drop mental invitations until I succomb to their persistence. It has been that way with New Orleans. I have received several promptings lately, reminding me that this is one classic destination that has alluded me thus far. That will have to change...
