All Talk and No Action Friday, April 5, 2013

There hasn't been sufficient motivation to write recently. That, and the general rustiness that accompanies a graduate student's life have kept this space empty.

Not today.

I feel compelled to write about one man who has been a great inspiration - Roger Ebert.

Through the last 5 years of reading Ebert, I have been introduced to different ways of looking at art and life. His humour, intellect, knowledge and humility made reading him an immense pleasure. He treated his readers with respect and warmth. His curiosity was childlike and his battle with cancer, graceful and encouraging.

Reading Ebert has enriched my life and I will forever be indebted.
