Inspiring
8 August 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I watched this movie on Showtime. As a person who was in my twenties during the 1960's, it struck a chord. I never did buy into the career trip. I tried one, then ended up waiting tables most of my life. But I wanted the freedom that owning land and a home could provide. I now have that without selling my soul. I'm 68 and wondering what to do with the rest of my life. This movie struck a chord, to make me realize how thankful I am for living in a rural area with Nature around me. I think I'll spend more time outside, more days at the ocean, appreciate every moment of clear air, water and sky. I'll try to live on what I have and never go back to work for someone unless I want to. It's a good movie that speaks to the soul.
