Book I’m reading:

I don’t want to spend the day counting them, but a hell of a lot.
Three books that mean a lot to me:
“Jane Eyre” by Charlotte Bronte
“Rilke on Love and Other Difficulties” by Rainer Maria Rilke, translation by John J. L. Mood
“Goodnight Moon” by Margaret Wise Brown, illustration by Clement Hurd
Last film I saw:
Just a constant stream of Turner Classic Movies. Eventually I’ll get this year’s screeners…and I’ll watch them for months.
Three films that mean a lot to me:
“The Wizard of Oz”
“The Awful Truth”
“Norma Rae” — because it certainly changed my life.
Last CD I bought:
I rarely buy actual CDs. I download music on to my iPod. But I just got Yo-Yo Ma’s new CD “Appassionato”… it’s now downloaded onto my trusty little gadget.
Band currently playing:
Songs that mean a lot to me:
“Moon River” –because I sing it to myself when I’m on a bumpy flight….during the bumps not the whole
time. And I sing it to my grandkids as a lullaby.
“Dear Mama” by Tupac Shakur — because one of my sons gave it to me.
“Eli’s Coming” by Laura Nyro — that’s why I named my son Eli.

Anywhere with my whole family…where I don’t have to cook and clean.
OK….it’s my one glass of great cold California Chardonnay every night…maybe a glass and a half….and I have to have a sliced Fuji apple (a must) every night not necessarily with my chardonnay but I have to.
