Raoul’s 2 Cents


I trust you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving with the precious people in your life.

I’m taking a quick break from my own gathering to wish you all a belated Thanksgiving.

Wondering what to watch during this relaxing weekend? If you are a Broadway enthusiast, and you like “The Chorus Line,” and you have access to Amazon Prime, go watch “Every Little Step.” It’s a creative documentary of the making of that dancing blockbuster hit. It juxtaposes the lives of the original cast and the incoming set of dancers. You will experience the emotional drama and bond with the dancers holding on to their dreams. It will keep you guessing who will make the cut.

My daughter is as creative and artistic as I am so it was nice to critique and connect with the characters. As in real life, the reason thousands … millions of artists labor for their craft, for that one moment of glory, is because they do it for the love of their craft. If you never understood their passion, watch the movie. We were so inspired by the film that we did an impromptu mini-concert of our favorite Broadway and Disney musicals in the living room.

My daughter baked duck instead of turkey and I’m telling you, this was the best Thanksgiving meal I had ever tasted. She used seasonings I had never used. Of course the best seasoning of all was love.

Did you go out of town to be with family? Was the bonding good? Did you say a prayer of thanks for all the blessing around us?

It’s a beautiful thing … Thanksgiving.

TGIF people!

    Thank you for keeping me in our mailing list. I do read your Friday jokes but sometimes they come in late because of time zone difference. Happy Thanksgiving Raoul and family.
