Eartha Kitt (1927 - 2008)
Blogger friends, I have some news. On Christmas day, I posted "Santa Baby" to encourage you to remember to take a lighthearted look at our sometimes insatiable Christmas material greed. And it was on this day, while we were laughing with Eartha Kitt, that she died. She is a perfect example of someone who took the tattered fabric of her life and pieced together a creative and beautiful life-quilt. If you would like to read about this remarkable woman, go to "The Original Material Girl" by Richard Corliss at Time magazine:
Thank you blogger friend, The Pink Cowboy, for keeping me update.
