The Booth in the Back in the Corner in the Light


"Well I guess that's it."

I start to get up thinking the meeting's over. Jerry points at some words on my notebook.

"What's that?"

I see the words he's pointing to. THE BOOTH IN THE BACK IN THE CORNER IN THE LIGHT.

"Oh that, that is the name of a post about this meeting on my blog. May I take a picture?"

"Sure."

I snap a picture of Jerry White in the coffee shop in that booth in the light (really only half a booth but what a lousy title that would make.) We talk a little more and then he leaves on his motor cycle.

We were talking about the production of "Walking the Graveyard". A wonderful little script by Desiree Nordlund of Sweden. I gave him a small good faith payment at the meeting. Then he told me I was the first person to pay him any money for directing. I smiled with a warm glow inside me. Other would pay him more but I would always be the first to pay him. That is the best part of being a low budget producer.

Good luck with the production. Seems you have found some great colleagues.
Love the thought of you ice skating - more good luck wished you but what fun - especially every time she helps grand-dad up after his inevitable falls!!!

Yes I found some wonderful people to work with and I'm staying away from the negative people.

I look forward to posting all the silly pictures of me as I try to skate with my grand daughter.

You were the first to pay me too. I will always remember that.

Desiree
You are a rare talent and I'm glad I could see that. You did me a great favor in your trust of me.
