“The day the child realizes that all adults are imperfect, he becomes an adolescent; the day he forgives them, he becomes an adult; the day he forgives himself, he becomes wise.”
~ Alden Nowlan
That wise child, my son was born exactly 43 years ago today.
Happy birthday Ranjan. Stay wise and keep forgiving the imperfects in your life.
Grannymar had posted these questions with her own answers and I thought that I should do the same in my blog as it certainly helps with one more topic to post!

What is the nicest thing anyone has ever said to you?
An entire 1305 word letter from my brother which concluded with; “Ramana my dearest brother, all I can say is that no matter how much money I was offered, I could not have performed what you did for my father. All I can say, is thank you my brother, and probably wrongly, on behalf of my father, may I thank you, I know that he never did, but I am doing so on his behalf. You and your son, and your now departed wife are superhuman, otherwise you could not have done what you three did. God Bless you and keep you. I believe that you will, some day be rewarded for your efforts.”
I saw this on Youtube having been directed there by a news item about how Samuel Jackson still can recite the Ezekiel verse which he so effectively did in the film Pulp Fiction.
So, I decided that I had to see the film which I had seen a couple of decades ago all over again. I did it last night.
In the film the two scenes where Jackson quotes the verse are of course very powerful and it is also a much younger actor there. Here is the first scene.
I liked the recital in the BBC interview and his reaction at the end of the interview!
How about you?
