During the 60’s, I dropped acid at the LA airport during a long flight delay. The acid was good. Too good. It forced me to seek refuge at a nearby theater where Zeffirelli’s Romeo and Juliet was playing. By the end of the movie I had mellowed. When I arrived in Cedar Rapids, it seemed just another day.
I still adore that movie. My acid days ended a long time ago.

It’s the summer of 2014. I’m reading Herodotus. Quite frankly, this is a bit of a shock. I never expected I’d live this long.
In an offhanded way, I recommended you read ‘Fever Pitch’ by Nick Hornsby, but I know you won’t do it. However, the original movie adaptation of ‘Fever Pitch’ starring Colin Firth is on Netflix. It’s a slice of life movie with a couple of love stories interwoven.
You should watch it. It’s pretty.
