The Joy Luck Club February 5, 2010

Posted by silverlinedletters in films, mmmm..., personal.

Today, I woke up at noon feeling like a relaxing Friday stay-in. I made my favourite kind of breakfast (a simple egg sandwich with forest fruit tea), picked a DVD, propped my lazy feet up and watched the The Joy Luck Club.

I loved the film, it was very thought-provoking. It made me better understand the bond I shared with my grandmother, my relationship with my mom, our history and traditions and most of all, the hopes mothers have for their daughters. Funny thing is, like the girls in the film, there are moments when I think my mother doesn’t know me but the heart of the matter is that they have so much age-old wisdom and they see us in ways that we think they don’t, and in a light that we may not even recognise ourselves.
