1970's - Let Me Help

"It would sure do me good to do you good, let me help"

I heard it again on Fringe last night and I understand it was in the movie Thor. Great Song.

Steve Jobs

"[Y]ou can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something -- your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life."

"Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything -- all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure - these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart. ... Stay hungry. Stay foolish."

-- Stanford University commencement address, June 2005.



Jeff Buckley - Hallelujah - Indeed!

"Well I've heard there was a secret chord
David played and it pleased the Lord
But you don't really care for music, do ya ?"

Written by Leonard Cohen and made famous by Shrek - Jeff Buckley's version remains my favorite. RIP

It really is complicated!

The older you get the more grey everything becomes. This weekend I watched two very funny favorites. They were on and I couldn't stop watching even though I'd seen them before.

First "It's Complicated" showcases a trio of gold star actors Meryl Streep, Steve Martin, and Jeff Baldwin. That guy from the "Office" is hilarious as the prospective son-in-law who discovers the affair.

Earlier I watched "Something's Gotta Give" with "Jack and Diane". You can't lose with Jack Nicholson and Diane Keaton. Throw in Keanu Reeves for the perfect trio! Both movies were directed by Nancy Meyers who is committed to showing older people falling in love.

The movie is excellent but so is the beautiful beach house!
