What a Ride!

It's been a long time since I indulged myself by reading a book in one sitting, but such was the case yesterday with Logan and Noah Miller's book, "Either You're In of You're In The Way." It's the incredibl true story of identical twins who made a vow to their homeless, alcoholic father just before he died that they would make a movie about his life.
Just a few minor problems. They had never written a screen play, had no money, no equipment, no connections and no support. All they had was a promise that became a burning desire.
But as Dorothy sang, "Dreams really do come true."
By the time it was over, they had managed to write, produce, direct, and act in their movie and get four-time Academy Award-nominated Ed Harris to play their father.
They proved Anatole French's statement that, "To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but dream; not only plan but believe."
It inspired the heck out of me.
