RIP Mike Nichols - 83

By
Real Estate Technology with Carmody and Associates LLC

Noted film and stage director Mike Nichols died Wednesday.  He was 83.

Mike is one of the few directors whose credits include winning an Oscar, an Emmy, a Tony and a Grammy. Mike collaborated extensively with Elaine May in satiric comedy skits going back to the Jack Paar show.  He will be remembered as a film director for The Graduate, The Birdcage, The Working Girl, Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf, Primary Colors, Charlie Wilson's War and many others.

His talent spanned more than a half century of American Life - which will be diminished by his loss.

He was married to Diane Sawyer from 1988 until his passing.

He will be missed.

At my age, Jon, you could be seeing a lot of those.

I am not buying it about your age. What age? It is actually quite interesting. I had some period in my life, when I was seeing my life as ending, and this is a terrible feeling.

But I remember, that I was absolutely not scared before the open heart surgery. My wife was, others around were trying to encourage, but I was even surprised why they were doing it, as I had no fear.

And being not the bravest man in the world, it was strange until I figured that what could scare me was pain and suffering, and not even death. i knew that I would go to sleep and then if I never wake up, I wouldn[t have the way of knowing. To be scared of death, I need to know that I died, but I won't. It is a sad moment to people around who love you, but not to you.

Seems like pain is what scares us most. And with the progress in pain medicine, even this becomes easier, I mean facing the creator...

We are still in the tunnel, and there is still light at the end of it.
