We've been listening to a lot of Michael Jackson lately.
Last weekend, we saw This Is It, a movie that chronicles Michael's journey to create what would've been a powerful concert. We were initially worried that the movie would exploit Michael, but it really didn't. It was a well-put-together film that gives the viewer a behind-the-scenes viewing of the concert.
Now, I'm not as big of a fan of Michael Jackson as my wife, but I have to admit the movie really displays his love for music and just how much he loved to entertain. Yeah, Michael was unique, but I believe that's why he was on stage his whole life — as opposed to just being a child superstar that fizzles out as he ages.
Just like when you attend a concert, this movie made me want to listen to all of Michael's songs that I've enjoyed before.
Here are a few I keep playing on my commute to/fro work:
I am currently in my sixth year in education as a Spanish teacher. I have been married since 2003 to Rachel. I have a sister who is 12 years older than me and has two young sons. My parents live in the small town where I and they grew up and have been married over 40 years. I frequently visit them, and I also enjoy visiting (nearly every day on the phone) with my 82-year-old grandma who lives 10 miles east of my parents in the country.
