Telephone talk.

This has been a week for meeting people I admire. This evening, I was able to speak with someone I've always looked up to as a writer, even though all I've ever read was his blog.

You know, it's absolutely true that cream rises. He writes like he speaks and he speaks like an old friend. He's just as comfortable as soft old jeans and an oversized t-shirt , cuddled on the couch with a hot coffee on Saturday morning.

Not to mention that I left the conversation with a renewed appreciation for him as a human being. I don't meet true, old time gentlemen very often anymore. Such a loss for us all that they have gotten rarer than hen's teeth in this self-centered, gratification oriented world.

Yes, it has been a very good week. I look forward to another conversation soon.
