Great man. I like his choice of the word 'and' in the last sentence, it would have felt different if he had used the more obvious 'so'.Carole
Great observation. Very true.
Roger Ebert was an enormously talented writer, a fact I learned from a mutual friend who sent me a copy of one of Ebert's essays. I seem to remember that he wrote an autobiography and I'm going to look for it. It is more than admirable the way he coped with his cancer and following limitations. At least he won't suffer anymore but he will be so missed.
It is called Life Itself. We own it but haven't read it yet.
I read his book and really liked it just as I liked him.I love his joy.
'His joy' - absolutely.
Perfect. Words to live by.
A perfect quote, Nan. Thank you for posting it.
Great tribute to this unique and memorable talent. I loved him from the start of the show and later in reading whatever he wrote.. Recently finished a strange but interesting little Kindle extra about the relationship between him and Gene Siskel, written entirely in quotes from people who worked with them. The world will miss this man!
Yes, we all will.
People could learn quite a bit from him. He lived gracefully with his cancer. He spoke and wrote eloquently. He was an amazing man. I didn't truly appreciate him until he fell ill, which is unfortunate but still, at least I can say he impacted my life in some way. Plus, on Sundays my days weren't complete until I heard him say, 'the balcony is closed'. I hope he and Gene are enjoying their reunion.
Your last sentence brought tears to my eyes - such a nice, nice thought.
