I'm Gonna Let It Shine

I'm in a good mood right now.

I just had lunch with a guy I went to college with. I've seen him once in the past twenty five years before today.

He was a senior when I was a freshman -- and he was my idol. Unbeknownst to him, his influence on me played a large part in the choices I made then that have led to the life I have now.

And we got to hang out, to catch up, to rejoice in each others lives. And I got to confess to him how much our brief interaction oh so many years ago has resonated through to today.

Add to that -- I just archived an Errol Flynn script from 1936; and now have an early draft of PRINCESS BRIDE at my side. And I get paid to look at stuff like this!

So I'm in a good mood.

The dust of old scripts has flared my allergies -- I don't care. I'm in a good mood.

Just skimmed the headlines of the day -- don't care. I'm in a good mood.

Found out a passel of my friends are sick (tis the season) -- and I do care. Really, I do.

But I'm still in a good mood.

So I share with you a little happy video. Ignore that it is a commercial. Just enjoy the light.

Just my thoughts,


PS Oh, yeah, what started the good mood was this post by friend Jeff. Yeah, that will start a good mood going.

I hear ya. You gotta let it soak in, seep into your bones, get your whole body into it. Goodness knows hard times will come again, it's the good days that keep us going. Have you ever read a short story called "Dog Heaven" by Stephanie Vaughn? I think you'd like it, it's sort of about this, and funny too, and just really moving. (I think there is a New Yorker podcast of it, with Tobias Wolff reading).
