IN HER SHOES, pg13, 2005 - the shoe fits
I saw it again, and loved it even more. I saw it with my sister. I cried mostly because I am touched by the people, the Jewish people who want to touch us with beautiful values and sentiments and bring us higher to what life should be. And here is another echo. Seems I have echoes with Jews, with the Jews who embrace and affirm true life.
It confirms the insights that Gabrielle Brown was writing about in her book "The New Celibacy" that I talked about in "conclusion to The Real Don Juan."
Wow! Sexual intimacy was being used like a cure for not having the real love in one of the sister's lives.
Once she found the kind of love and intimacy of loving family, she was "cured" and began to seek a higher form of intimacy and friendship.
The movie shows two sisters who have an unbreakable bond, and also depicts Greg Behrendt's profile of how a man and woman relationship ought to be. The man pursues the woman because he has no doubt she is "it" and she doesn't have to step in and proove it like no one on earth but she can make someone love her.
The movie shows us what love should look like - and shows that when a man and woman find each other, it brings together families, not just two people.
I wept over the beauty of values that Jewish people keep alive, as we Christians also strive to keep alive, and how our hearts beat as one.
