A MOVIE CAN CHANGE A LIFE. THE SOUND OF MUSIC

Still one of the greatest movies of all, "The Sound of Music" is making its way onto your TV in the form of a live play and the movie with Julie Andrews. Yes, I watched them both.

My mom and I went to the original movie when I was 8 years old. It was first ANYTHING we had been to with an intermission. But that is not the greatest memory I have of this perfect movie.

When I was 20 and deciding on my next path in life, having been asked by a man I was dating (who I found out was married with three kids "I really don't love her." UGH) to be his wife, and told by my ex-girlfriend how much better men were "Try it," (UGH) I went to a midnight showing of the movie.

In small-city Fort Wayne, Indiana, in an elegant tiered theater, I sat alone, mid-section. As I checked my watch, it was almost start time, but nobody else was there! Would they play the movie just for me?

They DID! Yes, I watched The Sound of Music all by myself, and I'm guessing a projectionist who really loved that movie! It was surreal.

The scene where Peggy Wood sings "Climb Every Mountain," just went straight to my soul. YES, I had a dream and I would go after her, wherever she was, however long it took. I left the theater knowing my path.

"A dream that will need 
All the love you can give, 
Every day of your life 
For as long as you live."
Later that year I would find her and 34 years later, we are still together.
