Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. - Cyril Connolly

And Here's To You Mrs. Robinson
I heard this on the news this evening on the way home from a celebratory dinner with a friend (which I will post about later when the news we were celebrating is truly official and public), and was suddenly reminded about the urgency to celebrate your friends and family, and to tell them how much they mean to you. I think this will be a recurring theme for me in the coming six weeks or so. Anne Bancroft was a class act. I loved her in "Charing Cross Road", and her happy, long marriage to a guy like Mel Brooks is simply a portrait of contrast and compliments in the best sense of those words. My heartfelt sympathies to you Mr. Brooks on the loss of your loving and talented wife, and more importantly, your best friend.

    Sat in the booth opposite her and Mel Brooks in a diner in Sag Harbor once and just couldn't take my eyes off her - just magnetic. Of course I did take my eyes off her, poor lady was having her dinner after all, but I just had to keep checking it really was her - beautiful beautiful woman.

    Our waitress kind of summed it up, each time she came to our table her opening and closing remarks were "Anne Bancroft! Omigod Anne Bancroft!" a sentiment I profoundly shared.

    Congrats by the way on the uknowot
