Yes to Life
A young woman darts into a Paris café and catches a man’s
eye . . . a rich girl and poor guy fight off villains . . . lovers
flee through the jungle to a cliff’s edge. In the movies, romance
means adventure: the thrill of danger, discovery, chase, and new
love. Everything is exciting, exhilarating, and alluring! But Holly-
wood rarely associates adventure with marriage. Neither do we.
If anything, we see it as quite the opposite. We say, “Why doesn’t
she get married and settle down?” Hollywood really doesn’t as-
sociate adventure with the mature among us, with the notable
exception of Dame Judi Dench finding love in India in the Best
Exotic Marigold films.
But adventure matters. Adventure matters because for many
of us, the temptation is to settle down and stay there. The “Mari-
gold” movies resonated because they touched on questions so
many of us ask, like: Who am I? Who are we? And what are we
going to do in the time God gives us? What is the more that we
may be missing?
