I learned of a film today, added it to my Netflix queue, and couldn’t wait to share it with you.

In The Magic of Belle Isle, Morgan Freeman (always a treat to watch on the big screen), plays Monte Wildhorn, a Western novelist whose passion for writing hits an impasse (after he hits the bottle a few too many times).

BAM! 

Damn writer’s block!

Seekling inspiration, he rents a lakeside cabin on Belle Isle for the summer. 

There, he finds inspiration . . . or, perhaps, inspiration finds him. 

Rather like the chicken and the egg, it can be difficult to discern which is “cause” and which is “effect.”

Life may not always meet our expectations but, when it does, it’s MAGIC!

Aah . . . that’s better!
