Never Not Docked...

I had planned a different post for today, but one of those magical serendipity moments just happened and I had to make an account of it.

I've just been reading through Peter Pan: Betwixt-and-Between in the interest of refreshing and revising.  I'd run through two chapters, then took a stretch and turned on the TV.  I flipped through the "channel guide" but nothing caught my attention and I thought I'd go right back to Pan.  But then, having arrived back at my starting channel, noticed that one station simply listed "Movie"  Now, in the this age of instant info and knowing the name, year, actors and synopsis at the push of a button... all I could see here is "Movie."  No other info to be had.  Click!  Curiosity had won out.

So I let it play for a little while...a black and white with a woman I feel I should recognize elegantly dressed and talking to a man in a tux sipping wine and chatting away.  My mind drifted, to be honest, but suddenly I hear the lady say:  Toy boats sailing into the Never-Never Land, a land of beautiful dreams.  They had been talking about childhood hobbies...his being toy soldiers and hers being toy boats.

I still don't know what movie this is... and I'm going to keep it a mystery.  I'm taking it as a sign that I should just keep right on reading my Pan interquel.
