The 2021 version of Easter holds a special place in my heart. Fixing baskets with Reese Cup Eggs, bunnies, and carrots beside a gift is always fun. The Resurrection of Jesus Christ symbolizes the holiday that begins with Mardi Gras six weeks earlier, followed by Ash Wednesday, Palm Sunday and Good Friday.
It was the first holiday I spent with the family since January 2020, New Year's Day watching Alabama beat Michigan in the Citrus Bowl, setting the stage for another national championship under coach Nick Saban.
During the visit with family, I also found the time to work on my current feature screenplay, an untitled script as the sequel to the award-winning False Start.
With the future uncertain, I look forward to the next holiday, Memorial Day.
Valentine's Day should become an official Federal holiday. Making February 14th a national holiday is probably the only thing Democrats and Republicans in the Senate and Congress could agree on.
Visions of a man dropping off sweet-scented red roses and a box of delectable chocolates or Peanut Butter Cups to a beautiful woman never gets old.
For me, I made Valentine's Day into a weekend since the holiday fell on a Friday. I dropped off red roses, a championship shirt and box of Reese's Peanut Butter cups to my special woman.
Another tradition is lunch with one of my girls. She received a large bag filled with Reese Cup and female cosmetics.
I even got a unexpected gift: a Golden Merloin Award nomination for best feature script by the World Film Carnival Singapore. Legal Passion and False Start are up for the top award.
A Merlion is mythical animal, half lion and half fish.
