Yesterday, the Walt Disney Family Museum in the Presidio in SF. 10 galleries of artifacts from the life of Walt Disney. We entered at 10:30 am and exited at 2:15. Almost 4 hours of observations?. There is that much to take in!

Still pondering his creative needs to keep moving forward. (i can relate)
But his connection to people who could provide his creative movement...even more of a ponderance. His animators et. all...what an amazing connection to possibility.

Photo of Walt with Sergei Rachmaninoff and Vladimir Horowitz. Photo of Salvidor Dali riding in Walt's backyard model train. What did they chat about and discover of one another?

By the time i reached the last gallery, which mentions his last months...i choked back tears (and still as i write this). His visionary magnificence has inspired my lifetime. His old animated films still delight me in their innocence and happiness. Disneyland is still my favorite place to be. The sweetness, beauty, comedy and musicality of his incredible creations fill my heart with joy and possibility.
