I wish I were supernaturally strong so I could put right everything that is wrong - Greta Garbo


Today is Greta Garbo - one of the few actress who made the transition from silent film to 'talkies'.

Here are some of her quotes...

Is there anything better than to be longing for something, when you know it is within reach? - Greta Garbo

There seems to be a law that governs all our actions so I never make plans. - Greta Garbo

I never said, 'I want to be alone.' I only said, 'I want to be left alone.' There is all the difference. - Greta Garbo

I'm afraid of nothing except being bored. - Greta Garbo

Life would be so wonderful if we only knew what to do with it. Greta Garbo

There are many things in your heart you can never tell to another person. They are you, your private joys and sorrows, and you can never tell them. You cheapen yourself, the inside of yourself, when you tell them. - Greta Garbo

Speaking of old actresses...
Valerie Harper just opened in "Looped" on B'way, playing Tallulah Bankhead. I guess you can do Tallulah one of these days. Or Valerie.

I think a Greta Garbo stamp should be worth more than 37 cents!

Anything interesting happen at Saturday's RWA meeting?

Hi Wendy - we missed having you! It went well Janet, Teri, Yolanda, Maureen, Chelle, Charmain, and Jennifer Probost who hadn't been there is ages came so it was great to catch up with her.

Teri volunteered for president, jennifer the newsletter, and I'm coordinating the contest.
