Life Lessons I've Learned at the Movies

Gump200In this presentation enhanced with PowerPoint images and film clips that lasts a little over an hour, Larry discusses life lessons he's discovered while sitting in darkened movie theaters.

Some are silly, like learning the hard way not to plop down in a movie seat too soon after coming into a dark theater from the bright sunshine outside.

Others are more serious -- motivational even -- such as life really is like a box of chocolates (full of surprises) and the importance of holding onto dreams.

“A dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world.”

I had a wild dream last night; one of those where you wake up fretting and sweating a little and the tangled covers serve as evidence of much tossing and turning.
