How to train your dragon


A dear friend of mine from Cape Ann recommended last year that I check out a kids’ movie called “How to Train your Dragon,” which she described as a wonderful story about facing one’s fears.  I can always use some inspiration in that area, so I got a hold of the video and watched it.  It was honey for the soul: really fun and deeply wise, and just all the way around uplifting.   I  especially loved the way “Hiccup,” the underdog son of the leader of a Viking community, is willing to follow what feels right to him, even though this requires breaking free from the way his entire tribe operates.  The movie is all about the transformative impact of facing our fears and demons, and learning to befriend and ride the dragon instead of trying to kill it!
