Willy Wonka

Willy Wonka

2/24/18

My favorite movie of all time is Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory.  Not the remake with Johnny Depp, the original with Gene Wilder. The idea of a chocolate world visualized and built from Wonka’s mind had a profound effect on me.  It taught me that if you can imagine or dream it in your mind, then this vision can be brought to reality with hard work.  Do you want to know what's funny? I don't even like chocolate.  That's how I know it was the idea that resonated with me, not the chocolate. 

Do you remember the song Willy Wonka sang to the kids when they first got into the chocolate room?  This one right here.  This song right here changed my life forever.   "We'll begin with a spin traveling through a world of my creation."  Come on man Willy Wonka was dropping gems, and people didn't even realize it.  Do yourself a favor and watch the movie again.  Remember We are the music makers, We are the dreamers of the dream.
