JOINING THE WORLD - 05.24.2021
May 24, 2021
Thanks to everyone who sent me happy birthday wishes.
On this day in 1938, I was born in the back of a taxi on the way to Santa Monica Hospital at 16th and Arizona Streets in Santa Monica, California. It was a Tuesday, and apparently, I was anxious to see the world.
As a present to myself, I'm going to keep this post short.
Franklin D. Roosevelt was president when I was born. I mention this because last night, I watched the last episode of Masterpiece's "Atlantic Crossing" about the Norwegian Crown Princess Martha who steals Roosevelt's heart. I greatly enjoyed the series.
Some things just keep repeating themselves. On this day in 1938, a curfew was imposed in Jerusalem following riots, and Hungary enacted antisemitic legislation. Sounds like something from today's headlines.
I had no idea TV was even around in 1938. It is reported that a popular British TV show in that year was the "Spelling Bee." I love that show existed in the year I was born as I love both words and bees.
Yes, I'm a Gemini born in the year of the "Tiger" Those of us born in that year are considered part of the "Silent Generation." Not sure I really fit into that category.
Back to working on the manuscript for my novel SKYWARD.
