  1. I love this. That movie is on my list of “must watches” (also because of Erin’s post). Ironically, I’m currently in the throes of applying for my first *real* job in four years. Hmmm. . .maybe I should watch Finding Joe tonight!

  2. The browser thing? Yeah I do that too. My wife is always finding out things about me via my “research.” At least I’m not looking for anything inappropriate. Although I did show her how much pornography was on the walls of homes in Pompey, so she won’t be shocked when she goes there in a few days.

  3. I have never seen this movie and now it is on my list for this weekend. I love that you connected and he knew how you felt – a writer’s life.

    May you be blessed in other way’s this week!

    • It’s hard for me to verbalize why I’m doing what I’m doing to people without sounding like a wacko. Maybe I shouldn’t care so much, but I do want to be understood. Seeing that there are other people who live the way I live is somehow validating to me.
      Thank you, Angie!

    • The Lais are some of my favorites – they’re so complex, way ahead of their time philosophically. And YES – Abelard really ticked me off, but I identified with Heloise’s passionate nature at the time (read it in my mid-twenties). I think it’s the smart girl’s lot, to fall in love with “challenging” men. 😉

  4. I love that you were inspired by Erin’s post to watch the movie. I can also relate to you watching it but not wanting to confess to your husband that you had. I did the same thing with the film “Wretches and Jabberers.” I didn’t want to scare off my husband from watching it.

  5. Im just glad I saw this movie at a time I am willing to listen to it…. Sounds like you found the right person to hear it with you as well.

  6. Gonna have to watch this one. Not sure who I am at the moment, but sure that the words will always be there, so I’d better write them down because I narrate everything internally. Used to think it was because I was a little tilted, but have decided now that I just think in descriptions because I’m supposed to write them. And I’m so glad to have found a place where no one thinks I’m nuts for doing it…

  7. I love how Mike watched it with you even knowing you’d already seen it. He’s a good man. 🙂 And now I’m interested in watching it, ’cause I’m on the brink of slavery, and need some encouragement to stay strong for what I want.

  8. First of all, it sounds like you’ve got quite a wonderful man there!

    I love this post Natalie. Clearly it spoke to a lot of us. I watched the trailer and I am definitely going to get my hands on a copy of that movie. I tried the 9-5 life and I was miserable (and not so great at it). Deciding to work freelance was like lifting a huge weight off my shoulders. And deciding to write creatively again made me wonder why the hell I ever stopped. Thank you for sharing this. 🙂

  9. I will definitely check out the movie. I used to teach about the hero’s journey when I taught The Odyssey at the high school level. I teach middle school now and have been thinking of doing something with having the kids write a hero’s journey narrative while we read The Hobbit.

  10. LOVE that you watched it (hooray!) and that Mike got it (double hooray!). I can hear a bit of the anguish you feel when you write: “This is why I cry and fight and break down and get back up again. This is why I write” — I’m with you, 100%.
