Somewhere in the middle of the last century,
in the middle of a three-story, New Jersey apartment building,
in the middle of a young family,
a new life came into being.
(Notice the attached instruction manual. Batteries included!)
And he could never remember which had the two t’s,
his middle name, Matthew or the town he was born in:
Well, he finally got the spellings right.
And sixty-some years later they made a movie with that same name.
But it wasn’t about people sleeping around. And it wasn’t about people killing one another. And it wasn’t about all the other wicked and evil things people do to one another in our depraved culture.
It was about LIFE! It was about two people and their dog
scratching out a living in the normal routine of life,
with sprinklings of challenges,
with sprinklings of excitement
and with lots and lots of Love!
If you’re looking for a little change of pace.
If you can be – just a little patient and search out the beauty that life can offer, even in a crime ridden, tough town like Paterson, New Jersey, then sit down, let go of your ‘Need for Speed’
and enjoy the lives of a simple bus driver-poet
and a creative artist-seamstress.
You just might be surprised!
. . . the beauty of the Paterson Falls
. . . it was so . . me
. . . so eclectic,
. . . so Black and White,
. . . so romantic!
If you grew up there,
or even if you didn’t
Paterson is a pretty cool place to know!
And this author enjoyed the memories!
Here’s one of the Trailers:
