The Ebert profile in Esquire was wonderful. Those of us who have conditions which alter our bodies appreciate Roger Ebert's energy in continuing the passion of his professional life, writing reviews of movies. Doing something we love helps us get over the difficulties associated with the change people observe when they see us. It also helps us with those indignities which go unseen [thank god for all concerned] which my wife refers to as "the dailies." I am sure Mr. Ebert has his own set of dailies as is evidenced by the difficulties with eating that were described in the Esquire piece. So thanks Krista Tippett for including Ebert's Buddha smile.
