I just came across this article about a new book by Michael J. Fox. I've always admired him but I didn't know he quit high school and moved to L.A. to pursue his acting career. The excerpt from the book shows a witty, articulate man with a lot of wisdom to offer. Just goes to show there can be many alternative paths to success. I'm thinking of getting his book and giving it to my kids. (Not that I'd recommend quitting high school).

I heard that story too. I nearly cried at the end, when he apologized for the pill not kicking in and for being tremulous on the interview. What a brave man!

I think it would be a good book for your kids, whether or not you want them to quit school.

(How are your doves? Have they returned to nest outside your window or did they move on?)

I've always liked him as an actor too. I'm glad he's still acting. Liked his role on Boston Legal.

The doves haven't returned yet, but some other birds, finches I think, took over the nest recently and raised some chicks. It's nice to watch them from my window.
