So sad to read about Patrick Swayze on Twitter.
I was going to post about how I’ll never get to work with him, but when I started to type I realized how small that is… and it got me really thinking. His challenge was so enormous and he was extraordinarily brave. And strong, when he must have felt so weak. Helps put things into perspective… he wasn’t just acting, but it was a remarkable performance.
I guess no one knows if they’re courageous til they’re put to the test.
He gets an A+++.
This bit seems to capture his skill, joy and sense of humor — all while acting, and possibly not “acting” at all…
(right click to ‘open in new window’ when it shows “watch in YouTube” — it’s a quick fun scene)
Thank you, RIP.
