Karen and I saw an interview with this guy and think this documentary could be amazing. His name is Tom Shadyac and he used to be a well known and very successful director of Hollywood films. You’ve probably heard of his films… Ace Ventura, Liar Liar, Bruce Almighty, etc. He had loads of money, homes, cars, and was living the Hollywood dream. Then he got into a mountain biking accident, nearly died, and re-thought his life. That lead to him giving up all the homes for a double wide mobile home, bicycling everywhere he can, and thinking about his impact on the planet and his fellow man. He changed his life and then made a documentary. Check out this preview on YouTube….
A friend posed this question to me today…
If you could have a drink with anyone, living or dead, who would it be?
I don’t think I can narrow it down to just one. I thought, I mused, I considered.. and realized I couldn’t do it. OK, if I HAD to I’d say e.e. cummings. Not a surprise to those who know me. But really I’d have a list. Let’s say the top 5 dead persons I’d like to chat over a beverage with would be… today at least, because you know it would change daily, or even hourly as you thought of new people… but right now, today, my list would be (oh, and this excludes family, which obviously there are some I would want to see and talk to):
1. e.e. cummings
2. Salvador Dali
3. Katherine Hepburn
5. George Eliot
Top 5 Living Persons
1. Maya Angelou
2. Gloria Steinem
3. Jodi Foster
4. John Berendt
5. Stephen Hawking
Who are yours? Who would you, as my friend’s friend, who posed this question to her originally, said… who would you have a banquet with? Because it’s just too tough to narrow it down to one.
