I’ll just go ahead and say it—I love “G” rated movies. And “G” rated plays, books, television shows, etc. My favorite movie of all time is The Sound of Music. I don’t swear and only have an occasional glass of wine. Is there a place for me in this “R” rated world? Sometimes I wonder.
So how was it that this “G” rated girl was in New York City this past week? If ever there was a place for my kind to avoid it’s NYC. But you know what I’ve discovered? No matter where you are, “G” rated fun can be found. You just have to look a bit harder for it.
There are still a few brilliant and decent plays left to see, such as the Lincoln Center’s presentation of My Fair Lady. A trip to Times Square isn’t complete unless you visit the Hershey store (Yeah, chocolate!). And there’s nothing like a good New York deli.
The real reason for my trip was to attend the US Open Tennis Championships, so every morning I grabbed a chocolate chip cookie from the hotel breakfast bar and walked over to the tennis center.
I am an obsessive tennis fan. I think it goes to my early days of playing the video game “pong.” With matches going on all over the grounds I was in tennis heaven, watching all my favorite players.
But for me, watching tennis goes deeper. I am awestruck by the work ethic, the dedication, and the determination of the players. I am inspired and encouraged to dig a little deeper in my own life, to reach for excellence in everything I do. When I see a player give his or her all and come through victorious, I rejoice with them. It’s a good feeling.
So I’m going to go on living “G” and enjoying everything that lifestyle has to offer—decent plays, chocolate, good food, inspiring tennis, and of course . . .
Chocolate chip cookies.
And you can guarantee my books will be written by one who’s living “G” in an “R” rated world.
