Notes to the Granddaughters
This song came up randomly on my play list moments ago -- that's what slowed me down -- whenever I hear this song -- I am incredibly nostalgic -- I wear my emotions on my sleeve, as they say ... whenever I hear this song, I think of my mom and dad in happier days, probably when we lived on 17th Street in Williston, ND, and mom and dad would go out dancing at the State Line Club eighteen miles west of town and I would be left at home in charge of my siblings, except I didn't know the word "siblings" yet. I don't think I heard that word, and certainly did not know what it meant, until 1971, when I met the "first" love of my life. I remember her using the word. I remember it as if it were yesterday.
It was at a garden party. Yes, a garden party, of all things. In New Jersey, where they held such things. We didn't hold garden parties in Williston when I was growing up.
But back to the video, before I forget.
Sunday Night British Movie Mysteries
Starting tonight a multi-episode television show, The Woman in White.
Years ago, while in England, I met an American woman perhaps twenty years my junior, a most "interesting" woman on so many levels. She worked for Army intel. She "only" graduated from high school; she did not go to college, but she talked to me about The Woman in White, as well as many other novels. Colleen said she had not gone to college but she was blessed by having an incredibly good high school literature/English teacher. I never asked her why she did not go to college. My hunch: she could not afford to go. Very, very sad. But it never held her back.
I was reading voraciously at the time, eclectically, and had "graduated" to the great 18th and 19th century English novels. I had never heard of Henry James (The Turn of the Screw, The Beast in the Jungle). I had never heard of The Woman In White by Wilkie Collins, until then, until Colleen brought it up. Subsequently, I read it; and loved it. I've long forgotten the story. I need to read it again. Of the books I've mentioned, The Beast in the Jungle is most memorable.
In 2003, Robert McCrum writing for The Observer listed The Woman in White number 23 in "the top 100 greatest novels of all time", and the novel was listed at number 77 on the BBC's survey The Big Read.
