In her shoes

I wanna share this movie with you, In her shoes, based on the 2002 novel of Jennifer Weiner. I have been showered with a whole lot of good movies lately, because someone real nice let us borrow a whole pile of it. Why do I share this one? When a movie is good it usually makes me laugh or it makes me cry. This movie did both. It is about two sisters and the only thing they have in common is the size of their shoes. Here a link to the trailer on You Tube The second reason is that it ends with this beautiful poem from e.e. Cummings: 
i carry your heart with me

i carry your heart with me (i carry it in
my heart) i am never without it (anywhere
i go you go, my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing, my darling)
                                  i fear
no fate (for you are my fate, my sweet) i want
no world (for beautiful you are my world, my true)
and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart)
