I Want To Thank …

Everyone knows the fist two months of the year are “Awards months” in US – Golden Globes in January, Grammys and Oscars in February. There are also numerous smaller ones, like Screen Actors Guild Awards, Motion Pictures Sound Editors Awards, etc. He’s thankful. She’s thankful.

This morning, I got up from bed at 8-ish, took shower, brushed teeth, stood on bathroom scale. Woohoo!!! I gained 5 pounds in the last two weeks! I’m really proud of myself!

I want to thank my wife for feeding me. She’s always there for me, in sickness and in health, in poverty or in wealth …

I want to thank Tim Hortons for their wonderful coffee and delicious donuts …

I want to thank the grocery stores I bought the junk foods from …

One of my pictures was published

Finally received a copy of How Music Works by David Byrne at my doorstep. I’m honored that one of my pictures was included in the book.

David Bryne is a Scottish-born Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and cofounder of Talking Heads. He has been the recipient of many awards, including an Oscar and a Golden Globe. Published by McSweeney’s which is based in San Francisco, How Music Works is David Byrne’s buoyant celebration of a subject he has spent a lifetime thinking about. A brainy, irresistible adventure, the book is an impassioned argument about music’s liberating, life-affirming power.

Here is how David describes music: “You can’t touch music – it exists only the moment it is being apprehended – and yet it can profoundly alter how we view the world and our place in it. Music can get us through difficult patches in our lives by changing not only how we feel about ourselves, but also how we feel about everything outside ourselves. It’s powerful stuff.”

My picture that is in the book is Great Hall of Mirrors that I took at Château de Versailles near Paris. To be honest, I had doubt at first when McSweeney’s contacted me. I wasn’t sure whether it’s a scam as I couldn’t believe it. And yes, now I’m relieved. 🙂
