1. "Meghan and I talked about music - she loved Ella Fitzgerald. "What about all the hip acts that college kids love? Do you like any of them?""Like who?""I don't know all their names. Snoop Diggity Do and all those hip cats." Meghan shook her head and laughed. We talked about movies - she loved anything made before 1964. No wonder I thought she was older; she was an old soul in a young body."So what's your favorite movie?" I asked."To Kill a Mockingbird." My mother would have liked Meghan. She made my father and me watch To Kill a Mockingbird with her when I was in first grade. It must have been the twentieth time she'd seen it, but she still cried at the parts that made her weepy-eyed the first nineteen times."

Today's Quote

Quello che per primo vede l'America. Su ogni nave ce n'è uno. E non bisogna pensare che succeda per caso, no... e nemmeno per una questione di diottrie, è il destino, quello. Quella è gente che da sempre c'aveva già quell'istante stampato nella vita. E quando erano bambini, tu potevi guardarli negli occhi , e se guardavi bene, già la vedevi, l'America, già li pronta a scattare, a scivolare giù per nervi e sangue e che ne so io, fino al cervello e da lì alla lingua, fin dentro quel grido (gridando), AMERICA, c'era già, in quegli occhi, di bambino, tutta, l'America."
