I am looking forward to your next DVD. I thought the first one was excellent and as a not so good climber approaching 60 there where many wonderful touches that I could relate to. Passing on your love of climbing to your Daughter in a calm , collected, thoughtful manner was a highlight and something many folks taking others out to the rock could learn from. Especially if they are impatient and pushy instead of sending the message that climbing offers more than just getting to the top. Your fall actually startled me and was pretty awesome once I realized you were o.k. Could example of "shit happens" to even the most experienced of climbers. What you said about relationships is so true. The last thing my Father gave me before passing on 10 years ago was a coffeee cup that says "Always remember that true value is found in relationships" By my estimate you have had and have many true and meaningful relationships that would fill many lifetimes. Good luck on finishing your project.

Thank you so very much for those kind words.
Of course it takes one who is the measure to
BE the measure...

The dream... must be that you know I am saying something,
but I'm not succeeding at making clear what it is I'm saying....
I think I'm saying things to myself as well that I don't understand
or don't exactly "hear"...

I made some really good progress today on the last stages
of the film, continuity... post production, that sort of
stuff.... which are fancy words for trying to figure out
which end is up... if it's a good film, how to make last
minute tightenings....

I woke up at something like three in the morning
and worked on the film for a good hour, almost
as in a dream...

Pat,
If I ordered the first film today when could I expect it to arrive? I'll be moving soon so I'm trying to figure out where to have it shipped. Thanks.

I ship it the day you order, and it takes
sometimes only a day or two to get there,
depending where you are. People have remarked
about how fast they got their dvd.
Don't forget, though, to give the post office
a forwarding address.

All you folks who have been waiting for some reason
to order the dvd, I suggest you do it now.

The second film is now finished. I am very pleased with it.
I worked very hard on it, and it took about fifty times
as long to do as the first one. Thanks to everyone who
helped.

Has anyone seen the movie "The Wrestler?" That's not
far off from the story of my life... but for my
daughters who are devoted to me.... Well, in some
ways... feeling a bit worthless and damaged...

Rourke is great in that movie, possibly his best. Playing a drugged up, burned out, entertainer reduced to playing the "B" list: of course, it's not like it was that much of a stretch for that fine actor.

Unfortunately for us, Pat, I suppose Supertopo is a bit like those venues he plays at the end.

I still love Jack Palance in Requiem:
