Are you ever reading the paper and see a name that you recognize, and think, “That person has the same name as someone I once knew”? It’s a little like seeing someone who looks so much like someone else, even though you know it’s not them. Except today as I was reading this, it was that person I knew. Since some of the people who read this blog are from my hometown, maybe you already know about Jed Cowley, but I’m so excited for this cute kid whose dad used to be my home teacher who now has had a film accepted to be screened at Sundance. If you’re too lazy to click on that link (I would be too), I think you should do it just to see his beard, which is pretty impressive.
In case Jed becomes really famous (and I hope he does) you should know that his parents are some of the truly great people I have known in my life. And I once made cookies at his house.
