What a sad week it has been. My heart is broken. Two legendary people in Hollywood have passed away. It seems like not too long ago I was a little girl at the age of 6 watching Jumanji, repeatedly. Or being 14 on my way to a story telling festival and watching Hook on the bus ride there. And at the age of 22 watching Hook again to make me feel better, but let’s face it Robin Williams always made us feel better.
I went through a phase, that I thankfully never grew out of, and that was appreciating classic movies, and their stars. Jean Harlow, Rita Moreno, and of course Lauren Bacall. Gosh, I loved that woman’s voice. She was beautiful, because she was strong, and remarkably talented. I wanted to be just like her. She was amazing.
These two artists made me laugh,cry, look at life differently. And they helped me grow, live, think. Where ever you are Mr. Williams, and Mrs. Bacall just know that you two made a little disabled girl from Cleveland smile, when at times she couldn’t. RIP to you both.
