It's really not unusual for art (specifically film and writing) to move me to tears. I re-watched Coco with my folks on my dad's birthday Saturday and was a total mess.
This movie is such a joy. To encapsulate a culture with such grace and beauty and deliver a universal message of family and love - that's just powerful. And animation has the ability to produce characters that invoke such exaggerated, but seemingly raw emotions. The daddy-daughter moments got to me, too.
If you haven't seen Coco yet, I hiiiighly recommend it.
The #100daychallenge writing series is my way of holding my right brain accountable for all the brain fog in hopes that I'll learn to creatively organize my thoughts and learn something(s) new about myself in the process. The challenge includes prompts from the San Francisco Writers' Grotto's 642 Things to Write About. You can also follow my #100daychallenge here.
