Dave Matthews band live at Piedmont Park one sweet world-harmonic tempo map-of-meanspeed-matherton-project

Two year and 8 days ago the world lost of great human being, the American actor Kristoff St. John.

Kristoff played the role of Neil Winters. Neil was the father of Lily, as played for over ten years by the fantastic Christel Khalil.

In a scene in episode 64, Billy Abbott, played by the Emmy Award winning Jason Thompson, leaves the offices of ChanceComm where he works alongside Lily. He gets a call from Victoria Newman, as played by Amelia Heinle, that as a co-parent, the kids Katie and Johnny were eager to see him as Victoria was in a good place to meet Billy in his new place, as a man no longer driven by hatred, most of which is based in the grief of losing his daughter Deliah.

Enthusiastically, Billy said, “Three pint-sized V.I.P.’s who want a hug from their daddy!,” leaving Lily to reflect on not only Cane’s absence from her family’s lives but more harshly as his tragice death in real life still shakes anyone who knew anything about him. She smiles wryly away from Billy, and we got to see her desk with one photo in a frame. That photo features Kristoff and Christel in character.

Also excellent in episode 64 is Peter Bergman as Jack Abbott, Jr. As he remiscinses on the last year with his mother Dina Mergeron played by Marla Adams in the “most important role [she] ever had the privilege to play.” He flashes back, and he could have played the scene very quiet and cool, letting the memorial clip do all the work of showing the Christmastime nostalgia featured on this December 21, 2020, season appropriate show. Instead he acts in a way that is reminiscent of Jack NIcholson in The Pledge. Strong, committed to the truth yet empaths.

The whole sense of how a photo in a frame as Lily has, and the power of that photo to evoke emotions of mixed kinds on every level, reminded me of the song by Genesis called Home By The Sea in which, upon reflected on an old family home, through Phil Collins’ vocal say

images of sorrow, pictures of delight

Things that go to make up a life
Endless days of summer, longer nights of gloom
Waiting for the morning life
Scenes of unimportance, photos in a frame
Things those go to make up a life”

What I find most interesting is who is on the show and who isn’t. And why they are still here or absent from our favorite daytime dramas.

My prediction, by the way, even though an underdog by 3 1/2 points, is Bucs over Chiefs, as published 5 PM on the day before the “big game.”

Friday’s episode features Annika Noelle as Hope Logan.

The [original] Hope, Kimberlay Matula left the program. The shoes to fill were unique and well known to fans of the show. In other words not enviable.

This version of Hope in Annika resonates with me insofar as her bold, silent-when-needed poise and strength. My bet is that she was an excellent actress who has gotten much better while on the show working with the best in the business.

Thomas telling Liam to face himself and look in the mirror and realize that William Spencer III himself is the source of most of his own problems, like the rest of us,  was a spark and interesting turn in storyline from Thomas as perpetually unreasonable episodes. Like the rest of us, Thomas has his good days and his bad days without ever knowing which is coming.

Hope and Steffy’s relationship with Brooke and Ridge regarding the ‘is it this man or is it that man?’ situation. Their conversations are notably candid and open yet not tacky or gauche.

When Carter Walton, Esq, the Chief Operating Officer of Forrester Creations, as well as their in-house legal cousel, confronts Zoe Buckingham, Forrester’s lead model, on her conflicting signals, the acting skills of Lawrence Saint Victor and Kiara Barnes are on full display.

I thought –

  1. how well do you have to know someone before you agree to marry them?
  2. when is it time to forgive someone if you do not think they are being fully genuine with you?
  3. should you give a partner another chance after you find out that they are not as perfect of character as you might have thought?
