Defunct --- Day 2/337

Walk: Sundance Kabuki (All is Lost)
Distance: 3 miles

I remember walking out of Lawrence of Arabia, age teen-something, stunned, thinking that is the truest, most profound biography ever on the screen. And equally, that is the most beautiful man I have ever seen.  Many years later those conclusions still stand.

e e cummings crystal clear poem captures ciwt's moment hearing of Peter O'Toole's death announced today.

Buffalo Bill's
         who used to
         ride a watersmooth-silver
  and break onetwothreefourfive pigeonsjustlikethat
  he was a handsome man
                       and what i want to know is
  how do you like your blueeyed boy
  Mister Death
