Last night we watched ‘Midnight in Paris’. I had needed something easy relax to and I imagined a stroll through the streets of Paris would be ideal.
A successful Hollywood screenwriter is struggling with his first novel and is in the romantic city with his fiancé. Walking the streets alone one night, he accepts a lift – and finds himself back in time to the 1920s, the very period he has been drawn to. Here he rubs shoulders with great men of the time, as one after another of the city’s famous folk shake his hand.
I must admit to finding the character a little irritating, but that apart, the clever twist in the story is that this is not the only time period he could choose to go back to. And he sees that every age is the ‘Golden Age’ for somebody, looks more alluring from outside than inside.
For those of you who are with me, you’ll have made the connection already. We are, right now, in l’Age d’Or! It’s not tomorrow and not yesterday, it is here and now, what we make it.
Make it Great! We are each co-creating our reality individually and collectively. Let’s imagine we can make this the decade that will go down in history as the one that marked the end of all the things we do not need to take forward: war, poverty, famine, discrimination etc and the start of all good things; sharing, kindness, sustainability, Love.
