I Will Miss You Roger Ebert

"I was perfectly content before I was born, and I think of death as the same state ... I am grateful for the gifts of intelligence, love, wonder and laughter. You can't say it wasn't interesting."

--Roger Ebert

Roger Ebert has left us today. Growing up watching Roger, and then, knowing Roger, sitting in for him in 2007, working with him a few years later and appreciating both his fine work, his bravery and all of the goodwill and friendship towards me and so many other writers has left me too speechless to properly articulate how I feel.

So there's Roger's writing -- uniquely his own. I felt misty watching this video essay, based on a moody, swoony piece written by Roger, beautifully edited by Matt Zoller Seitz and narrated by lucky me. I will miss you and your wonderful words, Roger.

Great writing. Thanks for this, Kim. I never met Roger but I really miss his voice, which always came through with his writing.
