Things That Are Making Me Happy
Three good movies this week. Steve O and I saw ECHO IN THE CANYON, which looked at the music coming out of California in the mid-sixties. It was narrated and mostly sung by Jakob Dylan, a handsome lad who doesn't quite have the rock voice or charisma to be completely successful in this role, but some nice music and good observations about that time. I really enjoyed Spiderman, great combo of teen- age antics and a clever plot. And PAVAROTTI was nicely done by Ron Howard.
Reading BIG SKY by Kate Atkinson;. She is such a great writer.
Lost my power on the 3-4th of July but that allowed me to spend some time with my son and grandson and DIL. Not a bad week.
Go find the person you are married to (if you are) and tell them right now how much they have enhanced your life, how much they mean to you. Every day I am reminded of how we didn't say that enough to each other. We felt it was implied but implied is not enough. You will really regret it if this isn't something that was part of your everyday conversation, the fabric of your life. All of you are old enough that time isn't infinite for you anymore.
And I am telling you, how much you all have meant to me over the last decade or so. You are here every day and that counts for so much.
What are you up to this week?
