Measles ain't near as Painful When I was very young I can remember seeing my sister Carol curled up in a big chair, totally focused on the pages of a book, and I knew that she was not really sitting in that chair, but on an adventure in some far-away land that the author of the book had created for her. Sometimes when the world is fast and furiously whirling around me I can re-gain my stability and calm by curling up in a big soft chair and watching a silent movie on my laptop. It is like reading a good book. There may be people around and plenty of noise, but I am silently transformed away from it all in the glory of a silent tale from long ago. If you have seen the dancing musical with Fred Astaire and Leslie Caron about an older millionaire financing the college education of a young orphan and then falling in love with her. THIS is the movie that inspired that one, and I think after watching it you will agree with me that it is so much better written and acted that there is really no comparison except for the title. The movie is really two movies in one, the first half concerns life in an orphanage, and in the second half the orphan is in college and a May-September love story develops.
