Happy Friday, my friends.

I'm feeling more like myself today. Just in time for Magical Movie Friday
at Swan of Dreamers. This time I'm not going to share a movie, but one
of my favorite Halloween inspired episodes of all time from one
of my fave shows Beauty and The Beast. I am sure I have talked about
this episode before on my blog, it bears repeating.

The episode Masques comes from the original Beauty and The Beast tv show
that aired from 1987 - 1990 starring Linda Hamilton and Ron Perlman. I tried to watch the updated version on CW, but couldn't get into it. If anyone has watched the new one, please share your thoughts in the comments.

I remember when I first saw the episode. I was a sophomore in college.
My bf at the time has went home for the weekend. It was a Friday night,
I was excited about watching Beauty and The Beast. I had fell in love
with it from the beginning.

What stuck out for me the most was when Vincent meets his favorite
author and she explains the old history of Halloween to him. To me this
is one of the best descriptions of what Halloween is all about. It is
a beautiful episode full of magic, love, longing and dreams.

Beauty and The Beast is on Netflix. I also have the first part of
the episode entitled Masques below. Enjoy, my friends. You can watch
the rest of the episode on You Tube.

P.S. Still in fundraising for the show Urban Aura I'm directing. We only need $435 dollars to reach our goal. Any amount you wish to donate would be awesome. Help to get this great show to have wings.Thanks everyone.
