Hi friends! Happy Monday! Last week I was on vacation, and on our way to Napa it seems I caught the flu and am still getting over it. Not fun, but since I’ve been confined to the couch, I’ve been catching up on all of the titillating episodes of The Voice, The Real Housewives, and The Shahs of Sunset.
I know. We all have our vices.
Hey, it can’t be all life-changing and world saving all of the time, right?
So anyway, before we left for vacation I did watch something non-Reality centric that I really loved and I think everyone should see! I think some of you already may know that I am a big fan of everything Jim Henson and the Muppets (I was that 20-something year old in the Bear in the Big Blue House attraction at Disney World with the 3 and 4 year olds clapping along. If that is weird to you then we might not get along). So when I saw the trailer for Being Elmo I knew I had to see it.
Being Elmo is the story of Kevin Clash and his dreams of working as a puppeteer and his journey to becoming and ultimately being the beloved Elmo on Sesame Street. It is inspiring, sweet, and at times heartbreaking. For creatives and honestly anyone who has had a passion that they’ve tirelessly pursued, this is definitely a must-see. As someone who is relentless in pursuit of something creative as a career, sometimes it can feel extremely lonely. This film is a reminder that we are all not alone:
Definitely check it out and let me know your thoughts! It’s even on Netflix’s Watch Instantly (I think that’s what it’s called) right now, so you can watch it there too!
