Welcome to The Epic! I am launching this blog as a manifesto for and a guide to living well. The title and motto of the blog are taken from the Epicureans, at least some of whom believed in the notion that not one minute of the future was guaranteed to them and that as a result they had the duty to live life to its fullest every moment.

I believe in discovering fun and pleasurable things wherever I find myself each day and I am told I have a knack for unearthing them. My hope is that by sharing in my pleasures and some of my ways of finding them you will begin to collect all the riches that lie in the moments of your life. They are there. Take them! All our lives should be.....Epic.

Icons: Lauren Bacall

There was really never anyone else with this sort of presence.  Who could deliver a line like that.  Who could mystify and enchant Bogart.  Bon voyage, Ms. Bacall.

To Have and Have Not....a good movie but not true to the book. However, with Bacall on screen...who cares.

What a treasure! I just looked at her filmography on IMDB and am reminded how much I loved Key Largo and the Big Sleep. Those two and To Have & Have Not, are clearly her early standouts.

What a contribution to our cinema history!
