MIRACLE ON 34th (Read time 1:13)
You may be burnt out on it but I’m a sap for this movie. I’m talking about the original released in 1947 with Oscar winner Edmund Gwenn as Kris Kringle. The film was written and directed by George Seaton, who won an Academy Award for best screenplay, and was nominated for best director (and best film).

Hey Michael and all, Happy Holidays & 2013 !!! You right Michael. We must take risks and ask for what we know to be right. And so, I am following the wisdom you suggest. I have some intellectual property that I am in the process of bringing to market. Any industry leaders who would like to benefit millions of people and be rewarded for doing so, please get in contact with me. Thank you for the miracles !!! Aaron Wolfson

| Perfection or Self Glorification |
The most evolved character was Kris Kringle. He had no desire to prove to us who he said he was. He knew who he was and he just was. The character known as Jesus of Nazareth in the book "The Holy Bible" was equally evolved. If Kris of The North Pole did not have an opportunistic, albeit admiring ally, who had the need to prove to us who he thought he was, he would have been sacrificed as well.

| I thought about it |
I too watched this movie days ago. I remember that scene and thought no way would I take on that task. But then again If we all stayed in our comfort zone mankind would not evolve. thanks for bringing that to our attention.

| Having Courage To Be A Contrarian |
A lot would say They don't conform to societal and business norms, but sadly most of us do. Being different takes courage despite the odds. If I was a little different I'd probably have more wealth. I know you'll say money doesn't mean everything but it beats whatever's in 2nd place. To me not asking musicians for cash when I help them is more risky than not. Unfortunately, I rarely ask, for money that is. This lad in Miracle on 34th St. probably had it right in believing in good old Saint Nick. Merry Christmas to all here on Mike's Blog. Mark in Canada

| Well Said |
Thank you for reminding me of a refreshing definition of courage- " do what’s right, go for the impossible, and prove to us that you are who you say you are." With gratitude, Ron Mazellan

| Much to learn |
I never thought of this attorney as an example of putting everything at risk to “do the right thing.” I was especially interested in the later-mentioned fact that Darryl Zanuck released the movie in May! There is a lack of convention involved here and I can learn from that!

| Beware of Doris! |
Doris is the voice of “Reason,” which deprives her and her daughter (and us) of imagination and creativity. Beware of Doris! And let free-thinker Fred woo us back to our unique original selves that we are meant to be, full of vision and unafraid of others’ opinions.
