Just a thought for today.

My darling girl, when are you going to realize that being normal is not necessarily a virtue? It rather denotes a lack of courage! — Aunt Frances, “Practical Magic” (1998)

I’ve always loved that quote, and I love that movie, which is substantially different from the book by Alice Hoffman on which it is based. The aunts are barely in the book. I would still love to see a television series based on this movie of four amazing women who flout convention and live by their own rules. Good stuff.
