Dances with Wolves

I was pleased to see, as I made my way through the on-screen TV guide that the 1990 classic "Dances with Wolves" was on the Country Music Channel. I was relived because, as a pastor I don't get to spend a lot of time with family during the Christmas, New Years, Epiphany Holidays and when I saw that Kevin Costner's masterpiece was on TV it was like, Wow, I can watch a piece of this movie with MY SON.

I say that because, in 1990 when "Dances with Wolves" came to the big screen I wen to see it with my dad and here I am, sitting in my living room and my son can't wait to see what happens when Kevin Costner first meets the "Indians" on the plains and here I am choking up with the memory of seeing it with my dad.

I don't know what the overall critical response is to "Dances with Wolves" but it is a movie that I love, if for nothing else than the memory of going to see it when it first came out on the big-screen with my father and now I am able to share some of that fatherly memory with my son, Eric.
