Back in time...


One more evening, one more post and once again a blank in my mind. yes, I couldn't really think of anything interesting to write today. Nonetheless, I`m still writing...and who said I need to have interesting topics? After all, I myself said this blog doesn't host that many interesting topics. And maybe this is just not the purpose, right?
Today was a normal day: I had to spend most of it with the kids, but I also had time for my ice-skating class :) The evening, then, was particularly special. After dinner, my hostfamily and I watched a Disney movie: Aladdin. I perfectly remember when it came out and the day I went to see it at the movie theater. I went with my neighbors, Irene and Caterina, and both their and my parents. My brother also was in Italy at the time. I remember we went at the Cinema Arcobaleno and we sat in the last row. I really enjoyed the movie very much, and also my friends and their family liked it a lot...so much so that we stayed to see it one more time. My dad, unlike my friends` parents, didn't really enjoy Disney movies and slept for most of the movie the first time we watched it. I think I`m not lying if I say he must have slept during the whole movie the second time. From that day on, Aladdin became a sort of joke for my dad. Of course, I remember the cold car that was waiting for us outside of the cinema, and the chilly drive home. Finally, I remember my innumerable attempts to draw Jasmine and Raja, my Jasmine Barbie that I convinced my mom to buy, my Aladdin sticker album...
While I was watching the movie, I traveled back in time (and space) and I re-lived all those feelings ans sensations I had lived more than 15 years ago. It is funny how movies and song have this power over us. The result is that the rest of the evening is doomed y all this nostalgia that watching the movie arose in me...
