Remembering and Celebrating Michael Crichton

I had intended to post my own tribute to Michael Crichton today. But I discovered that remembering his death has disquieted me to the point where I am unable to focus enough to finish writing the tribute he deserves. Perhaps posting all these tributes from others has gotten to me. So I’ll post my tribute either Friday or Saturday.

Today I decided to celebrate Michael Crichton’s life in a special way. In an interview with Amazon, Crichton was asked:

Q: You are stranded on a desert island with only one book, one CD, and one DVD--what are they?

Crichton’s answers:

Book - Tao Te Ching by Lao Tzu (Witter Bynner version)

CD - Symphony #2 in D Major by Johannes Brahms (Georg Solti)

DVD - Ikiru by Akira Kurosawa

So today I read Tao Te Ching while listening to Symphony #2 in D Major. And tomorrow I’ll watch Ikiru.
