When We're Young We Waste Days; Time Marches On Even If We Wobble Beside It

Feasting my orbs on Lin Arison's ear-to-chin grin in South Florida Album, my memory bank flung open its doors! Vaulting stride for stride with her handsome husband, Ted, Lin's cheerleader personality infectiously draws lookers-up and those who hope to clasp her grasps.

Her smile widens in degrees. Her Ted Arison smile was a watermelon slice. He'd call her Linnie with such ardor, there wasn't room for anyone else in their presence.

Flashbacks checkmark each photo; Marty Margulies (heads touching) as his palm grazes her collar. Charlie Cinnamon with Michael Rosen --same welcoming grin for the cameraman. He made photographer Ray Fisher a famous and well-heeled retiree, his opening night photos of the movie stars (taken onstage at Coconut Grove Playhouse) were bought by Time-Life exclusively.

Ray also wrote a book which was a bow-taker. Charlie Cinnamon is everyone's pal. Never saw him with a grimace. Takes no bows himself. Shy guy Charlie is beloved by everyone in his coterie and even though National Young Arts Foundation is not his client he cheered their new headquarters where Arisons grew their megabiz Carnival Cruise Lines.

Here's a plug -- young people take your breath away on January 12 with "An Affair of the Arts."
