When I read Roger’s post yesterday, I wasn’t expecting for him to be gone so soon. But in reality, it makes sense. Even the fact that he titled the post “A Leave of Presence”- foreshadowing at best.
I like how he said “leave of presence” rather than a “leave of absence”. He tells his faithful readers that he’ll still be around but not as much as before. With his passing, I’d like to see it as him being physically absent from this earth, but his spirit, his “presence” will still be with us. He’ll be right at the movies with us.
So yes, Mr. Ebert, I’ll see you at the movies.
