Here’s an account of how The Gifts Of Solitude became entangled in Amazon’s algorithms. The book itself I don’t plan to read; I already consider solitude a gift and am incredibly grateful not to have had to row across the Atlantic to receive it. But Roz’s Amazon saga was well worth the time.
And how about this gift? Take Me to the World: A Sondheim 90th Birthday Celebration. More than two hours of top-quality Broadway talent . . . and you saved $400 on the tickets, $600 on the flight to New York, $600 on two nights in a tiny little room — and got a front row seat!
And this one? Tomorrow — the Annenberg Space for Photography will hold a virtual screening of the documentary Be Natural: The Untold Story of Alice Guy-Blaché. which has been shown in over 80 countries world-wide. Never heard of her? I hadn’t either. Because — duh — until now (unless you were alive a century ago, when she was a filmmaking force) her story was untold!
And this one! Jane Rosenthal founded the Tribeca Film Festival with Robert DeNiro. Look what she’s gone and organized for us all now! A free ten-day global streaming film festival beginning May 29th.

The people who sustain the worst losses are usually the ones who overreach. And it's not necessary: steady, moderate gains will get you where you want to go.~John Train
