May 1

It’s *Hollywood*, from the bus window. Thinking to myself ‘what movies have stuck over the years?’ I free-associated a list and then sorted it.

Please PARTICIPATE! Make a list of the movies that meant something to you when you first saw them and that have held up over time. Then send me a picture or image you’d like to go with your list or I’ll choose for you. Check out the others. Fun!

I moved my list down to the last entry.

Just outside the front…

Just outside the front door of the school, Michi (a school compatriot) and I are preparing for a brief guided tour of the city.

You can see the steeple of The Pink Church at the end of the lane. If I can find that church I can find the school and if I can find the school I can get back to mi casa. There are Literally No Maps with street names except for the major major roads.

There are many streets like this that are pedestrian only and the major roads with motor traffic are all one way.

ancy!This is my daughter…


This is my daughter Molly and I at Kings Road Restaurant Summer ’06. I included her in the photo because as I was trying to come up with the “list” I realized a good measure of what I thought of a movie was whether or not I said to myself “Molly has got to see this.” This makes for a pretty short list of not-so-recent movies. Here it is in no particular order.

My Life As A Dog; Turkish Delight; Aguirra: Wrath of God; The Harder They Come; Doctor Zhivago
