“Little Women” is a classic American tale of four strong sisters who love one another and are trying to make the best of the situation that the culture of the late 1800s that holds them back. The story has been made into movies for the cinema and mini-series for TV.
An all-star cast led by Greta Gerwig (who should have been nominated for an Oscar for best director for this adaptation) made a great movie for today’s audience. I really enjoyed the performances and the casting was great.
Themes of female empowerment are all throughout this as author Louisa May Alcott wrote it. However, empowerment is the freedom for women to make their own decisions about their own lives and to keep what they earn even in marriage.
It’s also a story about family sticking together no matter what happens in the world they live in even during a war. There are tragedies that impact the March family and their neighbors.
The March sisters were awesome and as I say the power of a woman who is free to be who she wants is unstoppable. Fangirls are one of the greatest forces for good past and present. This story is one of those that should remind women everywhere that sisterhood and friendship are vital. See this movie. It will move you and give you encouragement no matter if you are a little or big woman or even a man.
Creative people are a different sort of people. They have a spirit about them that is meant to change the world. With their work comes a responsibility to inspire others and make things better for everyone. Talented people are everywhere and it’s awesome to see them doing what they do. Unfortunately, many creatives have been censored and lost their lives for living their truth and answering the call of life. Some works have been deemed too radical, too scandalous, too revolutionary.
Art like beauty is in the eye of the beholder or in this case creator. The ability to change hearts and minds through art, music, literature, dance is truly powerful. I hope my blogging can do that in some small measure. The greatest thing we can do is to love one another and to inspire others to do the same through our gifts and talents. Everyone has a gift they can share.
Originals are nonconformists, people who not only have new ideas but take action to champion them. They are people who stand out and speak up. Originals drive creativity and change in the world. They’re the people you want to bet on.
Being original is important. Anything new is worth exploring and if it doesn’t work out then try again. Any inventor will share their experience with you. Creativity is indeed a process and you want to get behind those who are doing it.
All-in-all let your light shine through whatever medium you have chosen to express yourself. Be brave and have fun shaking things up along the way. Don’t worry about causing chaos all the good people do it. Besides some everyone needs little shaking up.
