Yes it was uplifting...

And silly, and lovely, and absurd. Also really funny at times. Nudging you in the ribs a little - reminding you of life's possibilities.

Up, a great movie to watch on a winter evening with friends.

And some things that came to mind after it was over, when I was humming the theme music and feeling happy:

- Day to day life can be an adventure too

- You're not too old to have one (both an adventure and a day to day life)

- Don't shut yourself away from the world and other people

- Letting go is a poignant, painful but often necessary part of growing older

- Dream, don't stop dreaming, no matter where you are and what you can do about those dreams

- Have some balloons around; you never know when they'll come in handy

- Assist the elderly
