I will never look at those “1000 or 100 Paintings to See, Foods to Eat, Video Games to Play, Gardens to Visit, Music to Hear, Places to See, Golf, Fish, Visit, Have Sex, Dive, Swim, Ski, Hike, Kayak, Beers to Drink, Wines to Taste, Books to Read, Sports You Should Play, Things to Know…before you….” books again in the same way. I mean, who has the time?! Jeezum! Too much pressure!
There are nearly 10,000 entries on Amazon for such titles with “…before you…”
According to witnesses, when I was under anesthesia I was joking that I wanted to see more rainbows and unicorns on television and less garbage and violence.

Much more soothing than the pabulum and din. Give me the NYC public access Yule log anytime!
My resolve is strong and my outlook bright, but I also have been thinking about those left behind…Jill Noss, Brigid Maire Clark, family members, Hugh Roberts, David Rothschild and so many more…
