Nothing like getting a dose of reality when you learn that a figure larger than life, Sydney Pollack, director, actor, writer, died nine months after learning he had cancer. He was 74. Way too young. Of course it was kept quiet in Hollywood. Maybe a few knew.
Makes you wonder what tomorrow is going to be like. Am I doing what I like today? What have I put off? Who did I piss off?
Sydney had so much to live for. Lived the life of several men. Yet to many of us, it was not enough.
