    Is it just me, or was that movie "Bridges of Madison County" a real tear
    jerker? Maybe it's because I'm so sentimental, but **** that a really SAD
    flick. It just wrenches your heart. Or maybe it's just me.

    Bill you old softie. Need I remind you that the movie was about an
    adulterous affair?

      Made me sad, too, the way that woman deceived her family.

        Yes, on the surface level, that is what it was about. I went past that
        level (I guess I bypassed it) and just felt really sad. I don't know how
        to explain that. About all I can tell you is I am a very sentimental
        type - and yeah, a softie at heart, as a few have picked up on.

          Yeah, well I guess emotional and sentimental often (usually?) translates to
          sad for me.

            Gee, I'm glad I didn't see it.

              What was sad about it for you Bill? I'd be curious to get your take on it.

                How can I answer this? First, you have to put aside the affair itself,
                and look at the lives of the parties involved. IF one can do that (just
                for this movie), then it seems to be a sad story - one of (seemingly)
                unrequited love, so to speak, if I have the right word there. The saddest
                part was at the end, when he left her all that sentimental stuff. Anyway,
                the only way you can get this perspective (I think) is if you somehow can
                bypass the affair part and look at the hearts of the individuals (well, it
                was a movie after all, so one can take such license, can't one?).
                Ironically, I would be one of the last people on Earth who would tolerate an
                affair, but I put that aside for the benefit of the sentimentality in the
                movie. Sigh, I guess none of this makes much sense.

                      With further consideration:
                      I guess I meant "logical" below (in the context of this discussion). That
                      would be more accurate.

                        ROFL...that's where my head's at. When I read what Bill wrote, "First, you
                        have to put aside the affair itself," I had to blink to be sure I was
                        reading it correctly.

                          I have had this theory for many years. We all have many loves within us.
                          We are capable of tremendous outpourings of love for many, many other
                          people. It is only the conventions of our culture that precludes the open
                          expression of multiple love affairs (as acceptable). My mother remarried
                          when she was in her mid 70's. She was like a young girl in love. She
                          spoke to me about it saying that love is a capacity of the individual that
                          needs
                          expression in others. Her new husband told me that he had always been in
                          love with
                          her from the time that they met. When my father died and his wife had died
                          they
                          followed their hearts with each other.

                          I have met many women to whom I have been attracted, Some I have thought
                          could be a life partner of mine. This is true in spite of the fact that I
                          have always
                          been wildly in love with Estelle.

                          I think the sadness is for love lost. A moment of love lost can never be
                          regained, it is gone never to be lived out and enjoyed.

                            what the movie was about.

                            I would add just one thing - even though there is sadness to a moment
                            of love lost, there is also joy in recognizing the potential for
                            love (even if it isn't to be realized).

                              Bill, why oh why are you so hard on yourself? It made perfect sense.
                              I found the movie to be sad too. Staying in a marriage when you're in
                              love with someone else is not the type of life many would choose.
                              It's a sad existence. So is leaving your family.
