A leisurely stroll is a gift

Saw "Saving Mr. Banks" last night, and gleaned two profound home-truths:
A leisurely stroll is a gift.
Nothing is more sacred or vulnerable than a child's trust.
It was a delightful film, the performances (especially Emma Thompson's P.L. Travers) were great, the scenes and landscapes were brilliant. The relationship between young "Ginty" and her Dad was depicted beautifully and heart-breakingly.

But take most of the stuff about Walt Disney with a big cube of salt. The Disney version and Team Rodent may be magic but they're not always to be trusted.

My own Dad, on the other hand, was the most trustworthy person I expect ever to meet. He would have turned 85 today.
