SITTING IN CAFE' FIXE

it was a brainstorming session...
generating ideas.
we were putting a new spin on a character,
invented by my friend Paul.
screenwriter,
shaman,
racontuer,
philosospher,
Daoist,
Alpha Male,
but above beyond all else...
a loving man.
He asks me questions.
How do I develop this character?
Sitting next to me is
Nathan.
going for his Masters Degree
in Scotland.
He is literate,
but young.
Experience will teach him.
I'm in Boston.
Beantown.
drinking strong coffee,
generating ideas,
laughing,
enjoying,
all the intellectuals,
at Cafe Fixe'.
Back for lunch,
with two mystical cats.
the humans and cats eat together.
Salmon.
Now i see the Boston Marathon route.
tears in my eyes.
dreaming of the race.
i film Hearbreak Hill...
the statue of the great,
John Kelly.
I see a homeless man.
Boston...
I love you.
