What To Watch This Weekend Best Picture Nominee: Arrival
There isn't much I can say about arrival without giving the entire story away.
I can say this.
If you could know the future. Would you make the same choices?
Not small choices the big choices. The ones that really count.
Since the election and inauguration my husband and I...everyone really has been extremely stressed.
No one feels like they know what their lives, our world is going to be like a year from now.
As first time parents with a baby it's incredibly frightening to not know what to plan for. What do we do if the economy fails, our health insurance is taken away, what if our son gets sick.
Arrival asks if you would choose the same over and over again. To live more deeply than you ever have, to have more joy than you have ever felt and to feel more pain than you thought you could bear.
Would you choose to live it again?
I think of my Bunny Bears smile. How he kicks me with his foot lightly when he wants my attention. How each moment with him is the pinnacle of my life.
Yes, no matter what happens in our country or world I would relive the choice to have, to make a baby over and over again.
