Well, I'm back on "the book".
And I've decided to start blogging again.
And with Perry, I'm learning Italian.
And I'm working on losing weight.

Mathematician John Nash died in a car wreck yesterday.
Back when A Beautiful Mind came out, my parents had a booth in an antique shop in Outthataway.
I'd come over to their house to do laundry or something-probably a Sunday- and they asked me if I'd like to go with them when they checked their booth.
Sure, sounds fun.
So I sat in the backseat of my dad's car as we went (out 58?) to wherever.
My dad is a big supporter of the Chesapeake School system's radio station and they were playing the soundtrack, the whole thing, to A Beautiful Mind.
And it started snowing.
James Horner's score, zooming down the road with my parents as the snow fell.
There aren't many instances in my life that are seared into my brain the way that one was, but it was probably one of the purely happiest moments in my life.
