Disney’s Magic

One of my personal heroes is Walt Disney. So no surprise that the movie Saving Mr. Banks is one of my favorites. And while no animated animals lost their mothers in Saving Mr. Banks, I still found myself crying near the end, when Walt traveled to Mrs. Travers’ home in London. Tom Hanks, delivering this line, undid me: “That’s what we storytellers do. We restore order with imagination. We instill hope again and again and again.” This is what I do. This is why I write. This is why I read. Yes, I knew it before seeing the movie, but now I have the perfect quote to explain it. #grateful
