While waiting in the proverbial long line at the Meridian Ave. post office, I struck up a conversation with Jenny, the woman standing behind me. After the usual musing about long lines we got down to the business of talking about our personal lives. Women do that. We talked of children, jobs, and interests. I told her that I was a retired taxi driver and that I now had more time for reading.
I let Jenny know about the last two books I had read. Both authored by Michelle Richmond, and that Michelle wrote for San Francisco Metblogs for a brief time. Which meant that I had to explain Metblogs. Then Jenny exclaimed that she too was an author! Chatting with Jenny had made the time spent in line seem almost too short. I am ordering Jenny’s book,”Loving Luke”, to read on the next rainy day.
* Loving Luke, by Jenny Anderson
* Year of Fog, No One You Know, and Dream of the Blue Room, by Michelle Richmond
It was the opening night of Cinequest-19 where I spotted Mackenzie Phillips (American Graffiti, One Day at a Time) at the California Theatre. I told her that it was nice to see her. To which she replied, “Nice to be seen.” I asked, “Did she had something to share with San Jose Metblogs?” Yes, she told me about her tell-all book that should be out in the spring. It took a bit longer than spring, but her controversial memoir “High on Arrival” is now out. Mackenzie is making the talk show rounds and, this evening she will be on with Larry King @ 6:00 PM.
Yes, I enjoy the films of Cinequest, but part of the lure is meeting the producers, directors, actors, TV and movie stars. I’m looking forward to Cinequest Film Festival 20 next February.
