Behind the Scenes of “Back to the Future”, 1985-1990 | Good Advice | Scoop.it

I was just thinking about the first time I saw this movie in the theatre back in 1985. It was part of a double-feature after Fletch - at midnight!  At the time I actually had no idea who Steven Spielberg was nor what the movie was about.  I expected to fall asleep.  However, I did *not* fall asleep during one second of this movie from beginning to end.  I have no idea how I stayed awake at work the next day!  lol  (kb)

Parallel Screen Play: Are You Cheating In Plain View? | Good Advice | Scoop.it

What good is connecting with the world if it disconnects you from the soul sitting next to you? When we parallel screen-play as adults, we often remain physically present, but are, in every other way - emotionally, spiritually, psychologically - somewhere else.
