Moses Has Died

I have been working on my book, trying to finish the first novel in my Moses series. Between that and work, there hasn’t been a lot of time left for other things.

One thing did imping itself. Sunday evening my wife came into the room and said, “Moses died.” At first, I was a little perplexed, but then the connection hit home and I remembered the image of Charlton Heston standing between the Israelites and the Egyptians and saying, “Fear not! Stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD”

As I have written my first story and worked on the ideas, plot, and images of the other four planned books, Heston has always been there, his commanding presentation of Moses burned into my memory. For my generation, he will forever be Moses and when we think of biblical character we will think, for good or ill, of Charlton.

May God give you rest in the everlasting arms, Mr. Heston. Grace and peace.

    Not only your generation. There have been and will continue to be movies featuring Moses, but other than the original, my suspicion is Heston shall always be the greatest.
