What is a New Yorker doing in Utah? I better have a decent excuse. This time I do: I am at The
Sundance Film Festival. Wow, mountains, Mormons and fresh air with Bob, as in Redford.
So I arrive at this condo in a snowstorm. The condo looks like Hansel and Gretal on speed.
My first brush with Bob was at the Zoom last night, the local restaurant he owns. I saw him drive
into the parking lot. My second brush with Bob was when my leather jacket brushed against his at the
tribute to Dianne Weist that also took place last night.
I am just striking zero here. I have always wanted to meet Robert Redford. I admire his vision for
Sundance as well as his talent. Determined as I am to find him and shake his hand, I seem to be
batting zero. Oh well, there is always another day. Maybe I can find Bob tomorrow...Gee all I want
to do is shake his hand. Maybe if I go up Main Street, Park City, I can find Bob. Maybe someone here
actually has met him and can tell me the direction he was last seen, then I can at least follow
Bob. You know...pick up the trail.
You see I am a East coast kind of girl adapting to that western view right off the bat.
