A Father’s Love
A tweet from a fellow blogger inspired me to this post on a father’s love. The page is called “BeautyBeyondBones” and the post is the title of a movie called “Little Orphan Annie”.
As a child I longed for a secure relationship with my father who suffered from sleep deprivation and nervousness causing him to become addictive to sedatives and sleeping pills. I thought all this was normal, but an American movie about a sailor and a child evoked in me the feelings of longing for a father’s love. I think I was nine years old then. For days after I would walk up and down the side-walk at home wearing a white sailor hat. I was in a dream world. I see very few movies as these strong feelings are still overwhelming me when touched emotionally through a movie.
By the help of a fellow blogger moviejoltz I found the title “Anchors Aweigh” with Frank Sinatra and Gene Kelly from 1945. I am looking forward to see it again somehow.
