God doesn't do coincidences. You can bet your ass.” Matthew Quick , The Good Luck of Right Now

Monday morning at 9 I went out to move the car. I was shocked by the freezing cold day. So I decided I better drive to the mall to look for gloves. As the French say, "I broke my nose" on that mission. No gloves this year. I gave up on gloves. This store I was in is one of those mammoth football field-size we-sell-everything stores, complete with blaring voices promoting cheap smoked salmon or champagne for Christmas.

It was 1965. We went to the Bar at the George V in Paris for a meeting with screenwriter, Harry Kurnitz about a film my dreaded ex-husband was thinking of making. We sat down at Kurnitz' table that had already been graced by the illustrious presences of Peter O'Toole and Sam Spiegel. I was so young then I didn't really know who these guys were.

THE CONFERENCE I ATTENDED LAST EVENING WAS ABOUT FEMALE GENITAL MUTILATION - How to deal with it and how to try and prevent it. The event was organized by my friend Serge Boyer of Gynecologists Without Borders. There were 250 attentive people in the audience. Serge had invited 4 gynecologists, an anthropologist/pediatician and a well-spoken barrister. They came from all over the country to tell us about their experiences and the laws pertaining to this practice in France. They had all dealt with mutilated women both here in France and during their missions in Africa.

SPENT WEEKEND IN PARIS - Last week my friend Mort Rosenblum who lives near me here in Provence, wrote that he was "set upon" by some young immigrant types at our mutual train station - Les Arcs-Draguignan. Turned out they helped him schlep suitcases and a cat down and up the steep stupid steps we have at our station.
