Photography And Half-Thoughts By Mitchell Hegman

...because some of it is pretty and some of it is not.

Yesterday, I had a conversation with Lilly.  Lilly is seven years old.  We talked about the usual things: her big sister, rainbows, sandhill cranes, a kitty app for her cell phone, and huckleberries.
The huckleberry part of the conversation was my idea.  I tried to talk about Scotch whisky, but she would not have it.
When she mentioned something about a song from the movie Frozen—she knew all the words—I said: “I have never seen Frozen.”
Lilly was aghast.  She opened her mouth and swayed her head back.  “You have NEVER seen Frozen?”
I am sure she wondered how a human on her favorite planet could survive without Frozen.  Did I not breathe the same air?  Was I missing a heart?  Brain Damage?  That was the first time in my life that I felt perfectly awful about not seeing the movie Frozen.  I was completely out of her frame of reference.
Apparently, sixty is not the new seven.

  1. I LOVE I think I would have seen it even without taking grandkids. And The Croods, and The Secret Life of Pets....Despicable Me 1 AND 2....Inside Out...
    It's not that sixty isn't the new's that animation is the new Oscar contender. LOL

  2. I most often go to the movie with two of my (boy) high school buddies. I am going to have to work on them before dragging them to most animated movies. But I will try! Colleen will likely be an easier mark.

  3. Hmmm...maybe I should start liking animations.

  4. I like animations. But watching Frozen never even occurred to me.
