I have a expensive friend, who unfortunately passed absent a couple of many years in the past. He was a dashing, British actor named Peter Dennis who was delightfully entire of himself, as only British people can pull off with sleek aplomb. I believe of him all the time, but the pearl of kindness that he always imparted upon absolutely everyone he satisfied will come to me notably typically these times.
He had this valediction that I assumed was…just so…British. In these conditions in which most of us say, “Goodbye!” or “See ya later on!” Peter would say, “May Blessings upon thee tumble.”
I fulfilled Peter in 1990 when he appeared with me in “A Male Termed Sarge” (a vintage that you can discover on Netflix – by all indicates purchase it so that I may obtain a 25 cent residual check). He was amazing as British Area Marshal Montgomery and we grew to become rapid pals, remaining so after we concluded the film in Israel. The following yr he shared my property in Los Angeles throughout “Audition Season.”
I liked Peter, who also traveled the planet with his a person guy realization of the stories of “Winnie the Pooh.” It was, and continues to be, the only interpretation ever to be “blessed” by the Milne estate. My to start with son, Christopher, is named just after the namesake of individuals tales, and I painted both of my son’s nurseries with scenes from Winnie the Pooh…but I digress…
So, as you can see, it didn’t take prolonged to realize that Peter was a honest person, and, in point, could not be any other way if he experimented with. Peter’s “blessings” intended protection to all he arrived in get in touch with with, and he sincerely wished for superior fortune and happy tidings to be uncovered by each single man or woman, every single single time they fulfilled.
Now, as we facial area worries of unprecedented proportions, I listen to Peter’s words and phrases coming out of my mouth, in put of “See ya!” From these words and phrases I hope you perception sincerity, and most likely, the inspiration of hope for the foreseeable future.
To you, to Peter, and to the globe that surrounds us—-
Could BLESSINGS Upon THEE Tumble!
