Somewhere there is a Meister Eckhart quotation, idea, that I am not at this moment in a position to research - something like,


it is better to receive than to give, or more blessed,

because to receive we must empty something of ourselves,

and God is thus enabled to fill that emptiness,

which our over-fullness would have been excluding of Him, or Her

I never had problems with name dropping. I guess I was absent that day in class when the teacher said it was a bad thing. I want to hear of your John Wayne stories!

Interesting chain of association here:

John Wayne from Meister Eckhart (via Dianna's location ... x)

Ah me, Meister E was another real 'Man' (or, Woman) , since he challenged the Inquisition of his day and risked being burned at the stake for his beliefs and promulgations

Well, John Wayne was a stand-up kind of guy and a hero in the movies and in real life, so I guess there is a correlation!

Hi all....hmmmmmmm...why do I always have to be the bad guy?

     John is idolized in the media because there is a lot of money involved in doing so. He is not the knight in shining armor that he is made out to be. His relationships were varied, with varied results. His politics were even more suspect...as early as the movie "High Noon".

Yeah, Gary and Grace are communists!!!! Even our beloved Mr. Morgan, from the tv MASH series, was a communistl Richard Nixon was not a crook....

You goooooo, John, and all the pilgrims are withya, a yup!

Peas and Pause,

Marty and Hollywood Cats, Fantabulous Lucky, Stupendiferous Poppy and SolidSissy

Life wouldn't be exciting without the 'bad guy', which any way Marty, you are not - unless you'd like to be: !?

I had also heard that about JW, btw

Interesting reminiscences Kiddo .. 'fun, simple years' has an air of melancholy to it ... I never got that much into Big John - maybe he was somewhat too one dimensional, except his Rooster Cogbourn character .... the Searchers (I think that was him) wasn't bad .. not being the traditional 'real man' myself I seem to prefer those actors who could play against the type, thuogh yet embodying the type - ironically if you will - I think of Clint Eastwood, Sean Connery, Paul Newman, Steve McQueen - though I realize I have just contradicted myself here !! These are also of course of a later generation (maybe Burt Lancaster waas nearer the JW era, or Danny Kaye ...)

.... Marty mentioned High Noon; that was an interesting example of the 'hero' being left and isolated ... as for female screen goddesses, there is of course, Audrey Hepburn, Shirley Maclaine (great with Clint in Two Mules for Sister Sara, an almost metaphysical film maybe ...), Marilyn Monroe, Mae West (then we could go on to cite the Marx Brothers!!)

.... and did anyone here know that the Irish actor Patrick McGoohan was offered the part of James Bond after Sean left but turned it down on moral grounds ?

.... I started this idle ramble when I was alone on the site and i see others have clicked on so I'd better stop there ...

Mentioned this before (am repeating myself, maybe I have been around here too long ...) ... but Audrey H was great with Sean Connery as Maid Marian and Robin Hood, as ageing, autumnal versions of that heroine and hero (ps, for Soulfire - had you come across the notion of Robin & Marian as King & Queen of the Wood ?)

.... also remembered that John Wayne had appeared on the Board before, because, way back when the Board was under threat, I made jokes about us being in the Alamo, making our last stand - in which film i think Big John appeared, along with a slightly more diminutive Alan Ladd .... since we're onto films (well, I am anyway, anyone know Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid ? A witty blend of old and new ...)
