The thrill of the (Harbor) Chase

I was humbled to be asked by Bridgette Walshe, executive director of HarborChase of the Park Cities, to present my "Life Lessons I've Learned at the Movies" Movie Memories presentation Tuesday afternoon at the historic Highland Park Village Theater in the trendy Park Cities area of Dallas near the George W. Bush Presidential Center and Southern Methodist University.

It's always a little special when I speak about the magic of the movies and my adventures interviewing internationally famous movie stars like Tom Hanks and Shirley MacLaine (just to namedrop a couple) and see the presentation spring to life on a huge movie theater screen.

Bridgette, along with HarborChase executives Glenda and Lisa, couldn't have made me or their invited guests feel more welcome. Hot hors d'oeuvres and other enticing finger food and drink choices set the mood for a relaxing, informative trip down Movie Memories lane.

"Life Lessons I've Learned at the Movies" is one of my favorite presentations because it motivates, but it's also entertaining and fun.

One of the life lessons I feature is titled "Don't Mess with God."  I can't think of anyone better to bring that life lesson home than Jim Carrey, Jennifer Aniston and the great Morgan Freeman (as God) in the hilarious Bruce Almighty from 2003.
