A Message From Yours Truly
My Dearest Dears,
I know I haven’t blogged in a long while, and I apologize deeply for that. I haven’t lost my love for classic films. Quite the opposite. I think that when you have an appreciation for the films of the Golden Age, it never really dies out; it only gets stronger. Watching classic movies have helped me out of some tough times. I remember, not so long ago, being a lonely 14 year-old girl and discovering the joy that was It Happened One Night.
The truth is, despite the fiery and voluptuous physical appearance, glittery taste in clothing, bawdy and sarcastic sense of humor, abrasive personality, and loud Brooklyn voice, I’m actually a very sensitive person deep down inside. I’ve always kept it secret because I felt like it’s a weakness in me, but it’s the truth nonetheless. There’s another side to me that’s quiet, soft-spoken, and caring. Recently, times have been difficult for me again and I’ve been trying to make sense of it all. For all the times in my public life I’ve clowned around and flirted with the boys, I’ve spent times in tears and quiet contemplation.
However, there was a time when someone who was once very close to me really pushed and encouraged me to write. Mulling over this piece of advice, I’ve decided that maybe this person was right and that’s what I decided to do. I picked up writing in order to heal myself. What I’m writing isn’t a journal per se (I’ve never been able to keep up with a journal, even as a child), but it’s more like a compendium of my philosophies, wishes, scraps of fiction, and whatever else that may strike my fancy. And yes, I am planning to publish this as a book.
As some of my readers undoubtedly know, writing a book is a very difficult and time-consuming process. When you write, you have to go so deep down inside of your very being and it’s hard to really think about yourself in that way sometimes. Until I feel that I’m in a good place with my writing or until I finish this book, I’m going to put my blog on hiatus. BUT if you have any questions or just want to talk about classic films, you can still keep in contact with me! Go to the contact page on this blog for more info.
If you’re reading this, I want you to know that I love you so very much.
