The Greatest American Hero

So, we purchased the DVD set, "The Greatest American Hero" a couple of months ago and finally began watching it. Sitting in the room are 4 thirty-somethings and a wide-eyed 7 year old - very entranced. Too fun. What memories. I can't believe how many dreams I've had trying to take off like "Ralph" did from the ground to try flying for the first time. Sure, the theme of the show is a bit out there, but there's something about it that I think we all relate to: being asked to do something we feel totally unprepared for, having insight no one else could possibly understand, trying so hard to achieve the impossible, or probably most profound - doing something we know is right - when everyone else thinks we are totally crazy.

"Believe it or not, it's just me...." Happy Weekend Everyone!

I loved that show. It was one of our favorites. My brother and I never missed it.

You guys are so cool! The random DVD: Greatest Am. Hero....I can totally picture you all watching it in your cozy living room. This blog is beautiful. I wouldn't expect any other color combo from you.
