What’s it About?
An unlikely friendship that develops among three people, all of whom have lost the one they love most.
What was the inspiration?
I kept seeing the image of an old man in a cemetery, sitting on a little fold up chair by his wife’s grave, eating a sandwich. I wanted to know who this man was, what his life was like. I felt he had something to teach me, and I was right!
“See, that’s what I do. I am the audience. I am the great appreciator, that’s what I do and that’s all I want to do. I worked for a lot of years. I did a lot of things for a lot of years. Now, well, here I am in the rocking chair and I don’t mind it. I don’t feel useless. I feel lucky.”
