Watch La Luna by Pixar!


(Butterfly on lavender at Powerscourt Estate)

I watched a beautiful short movie on Sunday… here’s the blurb about it. There’s a little boy, his father and his grandfather and they are out in their boat. In the beginning of the movie the father gives his son a hat, the same kind of hat as the father’s, the same kind of hat as the grandfather’s. The father places this hat on the son, in a particular way – just like his own hat is placed on his head. The grandfather huffs and puffs, grabs the hat and then places it on his grandson’s head in a different particular way – just like his own hat is placed on his head.

There’s a bit of a scuffle and the father’s way of placing the hat on the little boy’s head finally wins and the story continues.

By the end of the story the little boy places his hat in a completely different particular way on his own head as he teaches his father and grandfather something new. Our children learn all they can from us and then there comes a time for us to learn from our children. Probably sooner than we think…..

What’s the lesson for today? Mairead.

  1. Hi Mairead, I’ve seen that film too. Indeed it was was beautiful. I loved the brushes used by the Grandfather and Father which reflected each of their mustaches. I also loved the idea of sweeping the moon. It reminded me of the nursery rhyme about the old woman tossed up in a basket who was going to sweep the cobwebs off the sky. Thanks for reminding me about the film.
