the incomparable audrey hepburn.
is there anyone anywhere who likes movies
who is not familiar with this exquisite person?
she was more than a ‘movie star’
she was a valuable human being that gave mightily
and who just happened to be beautiful.
but I digress.
i know old bean
you’re saying . . .
so what else is new?
remember when holly golightly would get ‘the mean reds?’
“worse than the blues” she said.
the mean reds
you’re at loose ends.
“you feel afraid. or angry. or both.
and you don’t even know why.”
hint hint . . . she watched the daily NEWS! maybe.
whenever holly got the mean reds there was one place that made
it all better.
unlike holly golightly . . .
i care absolutely nothing about diamonds
or things like that
or stuff itself!
just ask my good friends pooh and rabbit. you know . . .
in the side bar on this blog.
they’ll tell you.
so why am i making the big deal here about
holly and tiffany’s?
well . . .
because old bean
i have my own style of “tiffany’s”
that NEVER fails to get me out of the mean reds
barnes and noble’s
the minute i walk in and smell those scones
and chocolate chip cookies
and here the soft jazz
or whatever music is playing
and SEE and SMELL all those human thoughts in the form of
beautiful wonderful books! . . .
the mean reds fly right out the windows old bean.
i’m in barney and noble heaven.
i can spend well over an hour in there
and walk out with nothing!
but wait . . .
i’m not walking out with nothing . . .
i’m walking out with a wonderful smile on my face.
where else can you go where they don’t pester you to buy buy buy?
they leave you alone.
it’s like the library
it’s full of thoughts of man and womankind.
the possibilities are endless
of where you can go
whom you can meet
what you can see.
it’s people’s dreams come to life in little bound volumes.
and here . . .
she’s so incredibly beautiful
is another treat for your eyes . . .
i’m so sorry miss lohan – miss jolie – miss hathaway – miss paris hilton
and all of you who seem so fakely beautiful.
maybe that’s because you are.
you do not hold a candle to this real beauty.
(in my humble opinion).
and now . . .
off to breakfast at barnes and noble!
what’s “YOUR” tiffany’s ???
no fair saying the gorgeous piney woods or mountaintop or seaside
THAT goes without even saying for all of us old bean!
