This is what I see from the window where I’m writing at the dining table. In other words, this is a pretty gorgeous place. I don’t play golf but it’s a beautiful course and Tulea and I enjoy walking the perimeter which takes about an hour. It’s nestled right at the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. Up on a sharp, steep peak is a monument with a bell in it that tolls the hours and half hours. It’s a monument honoring Will Rogers. Besides the gold course, this place has a perfect gym with everything I like. Yesterday I took a private Pilates class which I’m going to do again next weekend along with Tai Chi. I’ve been working out a lot when I’m not rehearsing and I feel better than ever.
We’ve spent this last week rehearsing and it has been both helpful and fun. It’s a dream come true to be back together with Robert Redford. I didn’t take a picture, but we went out to dinner last Friday and had such a good time catching up, talking about all the things that interest us the most. We have so many things in common, especially a deep curiosity about life. We both have done a lot of exploring in our lives; we both knew Los Angeles before there were freeways and smog and congestion. The list goes on and on.
Here’s a picture of me with our director, Ritesh Batra and Iain Armitage, who plays my Grandson.
I’m going to be spoiled! Whereas, on “Grace and Frankie,” Lily and I share a motorhome, 1/2 each. On “Our Souls at Night,” I have a gigantic motorhome all to myself complete with full kitchen, modern living area and bedroom. I’ll have to try not to get too used to it.
Last night I took my “team” to see “The Light between Oceans” starring Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander. We all loved it. The 2 stars are superb, the photography splendid. Then we went to dinner.
Here we all are, Debi, Abby, David standing behind us, me and Jonathan.
So that’s it for now. I’ll try to blog every week.
