Up, down and up again

I watched the Pixar movie, ‘Up’ last night. The opening sequence, showing the relationship of the main character and his wife going from meeting as children, through marriage, dreams, troubles and death was a little too close to the bone for me. When, after all their experiences together, one of them is left behind with just a house full of mementoes and a head full of memories I couldn’t help but think of my mum , alone in her house. I was choked up and noticed how silent J and Freya were. Jude, however, looked up and me and said in his sing-song voice, “that’s funny!”
