If you’ve never seen the movie Somewhere in Time, filmed on Mackinac Island, this postcard may have little meaning.
In the movie, there is a scene where Elise McKenna, an actress, is on stage and gives this monologue, which is not part of the script of the play:
“The man of my dreams has almost faded now. The one I have created in my mind. The sort of man each woman dreams of, in the deepest and most secret reaches of her heart. I can almost see him now before me. What would I say to him if he were really here? “Forgive me. I have never known this feeling. I have lived without it all my life. Is it any wonder, then, I failed to recognise you? You, who brought it to me for the first time. Is there any way that I can tell you how my life has changed? Any way at all to let you know what sweetness you have given me? There is so much to say. I cannot find the words. Except for these: I love you”. Such would I say to him if he were really here.”
Christopher Reeve, playing Richard Collier, listening to Elise declare her love.
During our girls’ day, Patty, Jill, Sue and I stood in the auditorium at Mission Point Resort where those words were spoken by Jane Seymour, playing Elise McKenna.
The chair occupied by Christopher Reeve playing Richard Collier.
If you haven’t seen the movie, find it and rent it or buy it. THE MOST ROMANTIC MOVIE OF ALL TIME. I promise!
Wish you were here.
