Even with all of the rumors in the past months about his health, I was still surprised to see that Paul Newman had died yesterday. He was one of those timeless actors - you could not typecast him or pin him down to certain roles. His acting appeared effortless. Who do we have today who we will remember the same way in 50 years? One of my favorite movies is "Nobody's Fool". He was perfect for the role and the character is no different from all of us- trying to do the best we can, learning from mistakes and regrets but still moving forward. I will miss Paul Newman.
I almost called in to work today and faked an illness just to stay at the hotel! Of course, that didn't happen, but I'll have some time this weekend to take in the beach during the day. It is a phenomenal place to stay - we are getting spoiled on this trip.
