The first time I remember seeing Jean Marie Hon was in the Fall of 1976. I was watching a Saturday morning television show with my first daughter Nadia, in the den. I saw THIS girl with two other actors and a chimp. It was the girl that stuck in my mind. Hmmmm….

About a month later, I had organized a party for Don Kirshner which was to follow the 1976 ROCK AWARDS – also a PR client. At the event, I was standing at the entrance when this girl walks in with the star of “BJ and the Bear”…Hmmmmm…

A friend of mine in early 1978 headed a Management Company which was located just down the hall from our offices. After having lunch together, she invited me back to her office to show me “something”. I waited in her office while she retrieved the “something” from a back room. In moments she returned and threw a composite on her desk. She exclaimed, ” this girl is too good for you!” Hmmmmmmmm…..

A week later, she invited me to a birthday party which she had arranged for a “friend” at her place on March 21, 1978.

September, 1978 New Orleans – a trip with Jean Marie, Isaac Hayes & me for the Ali/Spinks bout…

From the time we met, over the next three years, we were inseparable. I suppose it happens that at some time in our lives, if you are like me, a person comes into your life that has the opening/appendage for the umbilical cord that we thusly attach to them – unconsciously. Today, I realize I came to that place not with luggage but with cargo containers. We attract what we are, water seeks its’ own level or we find some one who reminds us of one or the other of our parents and we try to change them ( so we won’t have that same chaotic, original experience)

But, I didn’t know ANY of this then.
