Storyteller Jean Shepherd (born July 26, 1921) was a fixture on American radio from the 1950s to the 1970s. He is best remembered as the voice of the narrator in A Christmas Story, a classic holiday film based on his semi-autobiographical tale.
This is so perfectly true~the condition of being human~
For Robin... "They left me with your shadow, saying things like life is not fair and I believed them for a long time. But today, I remembered the way you laughed and the heat of your hand in mine and I knew life is more fair than we can ever imagine if we are there to live it." ...Brian Andreas/StoryPeople
So true~ I feel like lying in the grass, looking up at the clear blue sky and staying right there until my body and mind are restored~ We lost our entire home as we knew it, to a washing machine flood~ the house is empty, flooring torn up and gone, every personal item either damaged or packed away and living in storage somewhere in St Paul, a shell. We can't have visitors or tiny little feet tramping across plywood floors, tack board everywhere, and dirt~ As the days wear on, so do I~ being idle is not a waste of time~ it's what I need... I just can't do it right now~ I get up and wait.
