Today, Susie and I celebrate our thirtieth wedding anniversary. In November, I will take note of the anniversary of our first date in 1948, about which I wrote on this blog on August 24, 2015. On October 6th, I shall fly up to New York to deliver a lecture at Columbia's Heyman Center, my maiden performance as a new member of Columbia's Society of Senior Scholars.
The date with Susie was an outing to the Thalia Movie House on the Upper West Side, where we saw a revival of the pre-war Marcel Pagnol film, Cesar. GoogleMaps tells me that the Thalia still exists, now enlarged and rechristened as SymphonySpace. If there is time, maybe I will walk down to 95th street and take a look at the site of that fateful date sixty-nine years ago.
Maybe there is something to the theory of Eternal Return.
