I have wonderful memories of Norton
and wish that we would have seen him more recently. I may have told
you about the time, probably around 50 years ago, that he lived with
us in L.A. He was going to UCLA and playing a lot of basketball. I
can still remember how he looked to me then. I was very young and
small. He was, it seemed to me, much much older, and very tall. His
favorite thing was to walk a block to The Farmer's Market, to a
fabulous bread stand there, Clara and Joe's, and buy their onion rye,
a long and narrow loaf that would be sliced into maybe 25 pieces,
crusty on the outside, dense and moist within. And he'd eat the whole
loaf. One almost every day.
I remember his summer camp and his dog-finders business and his
college placement business and his art collecting and more. What I
most remember is his enthusiasm for each one!
