Peter Pan

All boys grow up, except one. I watched the film Peter Pan starring Jeremy Sumpter this weekend. The book by J.M. Barrie was one of my favourites as a child and was worth revisiting. It contains many ideas and concepts that are part of lifestyle enhancing courses today. The power of positive thinking-you need to think lovely thoughts before you can fly with the aid of fairy dust. The idea of positive and negative confession, every time you say you don’t believe in fairies then one dies, and its converse in getting everyone to shout that they believe in order to save a dying Tinkerbell. You may not believe in fairies now, but how about some of your dreams. A positive expectancy of the future even when it looks bleak-‘To die would be an awfully big adventure’ says Peter when he stands alone on the rock as the tide comes in. So many skills that we can instil in young people that will aid them in achieving their dreams as they get older. I get the suspicion that this book/film and play will be around for many years to come
