There is a mysterious ritual that dates back thousands of years, no living creature has survived it, except the emperor penguin. Every year they embark on an incredible journey, but not The Incredible Journey, the 1963 movie, about two dogs and a cat, which I was not in, as I didn’t make my movie debut until 1964, in a very small part in The Pawnbroker, which was nominated for an oscar and deservedly so.
It’s sure rocky in Antarctica. A lot of people mispronounce it Antartica and miss the first C, AntarCtica. James Earl Jones has a stammer. No this is the true story of the penguin’s journey to find a mate. They march for twenty days and twenty nights, which is one day less than the 21 days it takes to build a new habit, which I learned from my ADHD doctor, so if you do something every day for 21 days it becomes a habit, whereas the emperor penguins have been making this journey for tens of thousands of years.
They march to a place so extreme it supports no other life. Almost like the moon or outer space. I met the first black astronaut. A fine young man. Here, at the bottom of the world love finds a way. It’s called the bottom of the world because early map makers lived in the northern hemisphere, and what they learned of the southern hemisphere was added on later, as well, most of the land is in the northern hemisphere, although, ironically perhaps, there is no land at the north pole, just ice, which I learned in that BBC program about Polar Bears, I love British television, especially that documentary on the Royal Palaces, with the arial shots of the British countryside, which I love, because I actually have my pilot’s license.
A lot of people don’t know that, but I fell in love with flying back in the late 1950’s when I was a mechanic in the Air Force, which is ironic because penguins don’t fly. I wore an army uniform too, but that was in the Civil War movie, Glory. The food on that movie was really good. You know what would be really cool? An underwater Buddha. Just sitting there.
