Treading lightly the path to enlightenment.

Roads – #8

In A Christmas Story, Randy’s mom does not make him come out of the cupboard beneath the sink.

She brings him a glass of milk, pats his head, and closes the curtain on his hiding place.

Loved and fed and in his safe place.

The essence of Mother.

  1. This film was co-written by and based on a book by Jean Shepherd. In the 1960s and maybe 70s, JS had a radio show at night on WOR, which is in New York City. His show ran for about 45 minutes each broadcast, and was a monolog. It was great. He was a fascinating guy. Are you familiar with that radio show?

  2. Hey Neil:

    I am not acquainted with Mr. Shepard’s show. A great voice for radio and voiceover. Perhaps there’s an archive of his show if it was recorded.
    A Prairie Home Companion was a great show on NPR, I listened to every week.
    Garrison Keillor had a great voice, too.

    Merry Christmas,
