La La Land…
This movie wasn’t great…just OK. I like Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling but they didn’t have much chemistry in this film. I didn’t buy their relationship. Oh well. No spoilers here. I did appreciate a few scenes including these. Yes, I am a hopeless romantic about four times a year. I am sort of kidding. I like magic and movies and a little romance.
It’s dancing I love. I love musicals for the dancing. My dream as a little girl was to be a professional dancer. I specifically wanted to be Janet Jackson’s backup dancer. I learned choreography very easily back then.Dancing is still one of my loves. I never had any formal training. Music videos taught me certain steps and it continued from there.Music is such a huge part of what keeps me going.
Music takes me to a fantasy world. I exist in La La Land periodically. Yes, I daydream. I remember talking to a guy I knew one day. We were just having a casual conversation before he realized he had other things he needed to do. Yet, before he walked off he said something I found very peculiar at the time. He just said, “well, I am going to go daydream now.” All I could muster was “OK.” I laughed to myself about it later. Who tells someone they are going to go daydream? I thought it was funny and cute. I also remember almost asking him, “what are you going to daydream about?” But I didn’t. I still wished I had.
The best part of that brief exchange was knowing someone else daydreamed like me. I just never talk about it out loud. I enjoy dreaming as long as I don’t stay there too long. If I stay in it too long then I just get sad because my dreams always seem greater than my reality.
Lived in La La Land for a little white. It was nice while it lasted.
