Happy Valentine's Day 2016

It hasn't been the best of times for me this month, and still not over. I can only hope today the worst of this time is over, but I know life can always throw us a curve. 

Whenever I feel I'm down or not able to fight what ails me another day, I always have my two favorite actors, my two favorite men, as an example of perseverance.

And the value of hard work!  Both of them are two of the hardest working actors I know.  This has been a good work year for both of them. Some of the results of their labor we've been able to see and enjoy (Sean's Frankenstein Chronicles and Legends), and some (Richard this is you) is still to come to our movie/TV screens this year. So much to look forward to this year dear Richard.

So to my two gorgeous Valentines I dedicate the song below, with help from Barbra Streisand.  I think of this song often when I think of Richard and Sean, and the difficult and difficult to understand world of being an actor, an artist.

A Love Song

What have I to say to you
When we shall meet?
I lie here thinking of you.

The stain of love
Is upon the world.
Yellow, yellow, yellow,
It eats into the leaves,
Smears with saffron
The horned branches that lean
Against a smooth purple sky.

There is no light—
Only a honey-thick stain
That drips from leaf to leaf
And limb to limb
Spoiling the colors
Of the whole world.

I am alone.
The weight of love
Has buoyed me up
Till my head
Knocks against the sky.

See me!
My hair is dripping with nectar—
Starlings carry it
On their black wings.
See, at last
My arms and my hands
Are lying idle.

How can I tell
If I shall ever love you again
As I do now?

by William Carlos Williams
