Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Good-bye, Celeste Holm, 1917-2012 (by Laura Orem):


well now that she is part of all consciousness, she knows she made Laura happy once.

Grace, did your girls watch "Cinderella" when they were little?

Laura, thanks for noting CH's passing; there are people who bring you such deeply pleasurable experiences, or maybe even only one, that they have to be acknowledged before they slip away into the ether. (The aether?) Anyone who loves THE PHILADELPHIA STORY/HIGH SOCIETY tandem as I do, not to mention other chance sightings in the movie cosmos, has to take a minute to say thanks and good-bye.

Not that I didn't love CINDERELLA, too, but didn't she, you know, like, shower or anything? Or was that included in the magic, too?

Johnny, you obviously were never a little girl, because if you were would know it was all in magic. Jeesh.

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
