A Word or Two

August 31, 2012

This was an experience to cherish, not to write about, and I thank Mom for sharing it with me.

Christopher Plummer’s one-man show was more personal than either of us had expected. It weaves his autobiography together with the literature that has shaped his life. Funny moments, poignant moments, from a pair of old boy’s skates and an escape into French to a meditation on death. His mother’s, and his.

Left with lots of new, old poems and stories to read.
