Nothing feels better than opening that box and finding a stack of copies of your new book. Well, except maybe narcotics, sex, and when the Parole Board says, "Go home." But, those things are relics of another time. For now ... the box!

I had the pleasure of meeting Marty Sklar three years ago, and listening to him take part in a delightful presentation.  Marty passed away yesterday, aged 83.  He was a gentleman, a raconteur, and a true Disney legend.

Two roses stand strong

within their protective thorns.

Entwined by years of friendship 

they share secrets, thoughts, laughter, and tears.

They sway with the whispering breeze

as they bloom and grow.

Mesmerizing all with the wisdom of their ageless beauty.
