It's bizarre how I heard about Powers' death on the BBC news site after I had written my post about 1997 and after a nagging feeling that I should have mentioned the movies
'U Turn' and 'Con Air' in that post, but decided to leave them out as I didn't know if they were big enough and relevant enough to include in that post.

Both movies starred Powes Boothe it turns out and in the movie
'U Turn' he played Sheriff Potter in the same year the first Harry Potter book was published and 'U Turn' is set in Arizona, the state the Phoenix Lights UFO sightings took place in that year.

It's funny that you mention the word well Trish, as I'm putting a post together about a real well I saw last year at the end of my last road trip that had pine cones in it instead of water and wells as a metaphor for the unconscious mind/minds.
Could take some time to piece together yet, as I have a few other posts to write about the year 2001 and another about the actor Anton Yelchin and his movie roles.
Plus a a final post in my years ending in 7 series on the year 2007.
Plus a few random small posts to link to things other people I admire are doing on the net.
So I guess all is well at the moment Trish...a very deep dark well, which is more like a rabbit hole the more I look into it ;-)

I seemed to have developed a stutter in my last comment.
I'll have to fire my editor...again :-)
