Even though we knew she was perhaps the last of the great Hollywood Redwoods (as Dick Cavett so astutely described her), it still came as a shock to hear of her death. It was a greater shock to hear my son say that he had never heard of her; words that simultaneously made me feel not only old, but ineffective as a cultural conduit as well. Sigh.
So here.....in these images.....a bleeding heart......my homage to the exquisite Elizabeth Taylor.
Good night, beauty. Good night, Elizabeth.
