After watching “Ratatouille” I realized I need more animation in my life. After my children had grown up I put animation to my back burner of entertainment only to realize how much I miss the totally creativity this art form can bring. It can create worlds that are so removed from mine yet have sympathetic characters that keep me viewing till the credits roll. Yes, most animation follows a children’s formula yet the twist and turns in-between is what keeps one on their toes. Predictability also allows one to escape to a more innocent hopeful world then the one constantly portrayed on the news. It also allows one to take a bathroom break without missing really too much. So I’m going to take a bit more of a dip in animation then before and G-D willing be more prepared to be grandpa along the way.
