September 24 birthdays

Two brilliant men were born today – Jim Henson and F. Scott Fitzgerald . The Muppets were a huge part of my childhood. I wanted to be Miss Piggy. I still do.

F. Scott Fitzgerald died young, leaving fine books for the world to enjoy. My favourite is The Great Gatsby, set in the golden days of the Jazz Age.

Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgastic future that year by year recedes before us. It eluded us then, but that’s no matter — tomorrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms farther…. And one fine morning —
So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.
