Welcome to Kathy’s Musings.
Dear Reader: I hope you are muddling through this mess of a year. Writing helps me muddle.
I invite you to stroll through my postings, which are about big things, and humor, of course, and the little things, sometimes ridiculously little, like my ancient counter-top radio. But it’s all in the details, you know?
My tag line, “Everything is temporary!” is from one of my all-time favorite films, Moonstruck (1987) starring Cher and Nicolas Cage, Danny Aiello, Vincent Gardenia and Olympia Dukakis. Thinking about this line lightens 2020 a bit. It helps.
So here’s the line, from MOONSTRUCK: (Loretta, talking to her father, Cosmo, has just announced her engagement)
Cosmo Castorini: It looks stupid. It’s a pinky ring. It’s a man’s ring!
Loretta Castorini: It’s temporary!
Cosmo Castorini: Everything is temporary! That don’t excuse nothin’!
Everything is temporary — music to my ears right now. So read on and keep muddling. Then go watch the movie.
