Thoughts on life from Pat Oaks
I just opened my blog and saw today's posting. Jason had changed the picture in the header. He had told me he was going to do that every now and then, but it was still a surprise.
Tommy and I are dancing in Grand Central Station in NYC! We were reenacting a scene from the movie Fisher King. We were on the top level of Grand Central and there was no one up there, just like in the movie. (Of course in the movie it was on the main floor.)
To me, every time I am in New York City, I feel as if I am in a movie. It has never become commonplace to me! Whether I am walking in Central Park, sitting in Bryant Park, riding the train on my discount "senior" metro card, or just having a cup of coffee in a diner, I can see the cameras rolling.
The day that this picture was taken, we were there with our grandson Cal. I love looking back on that day because it would be one of the last times I spent with Cal before he moved to California. I haven't seen him in about 4 years, so when I see this picture, it makes me think of him.
Most of the movies of life are not captured on film. That is why we have to be very observant when we go through each day. What is not captured on film, should be captured in our minds. One picture in my mind from that day is Cal, looking through the lens of a camera. He is taking pictures of everything going on around him, and I am taking one of him, in my mind.
