10 February 2009

lift me to the tip of Sugar Loaf

one measure of the depth of my depression is the fact that I forgot that yesterday was Carmen Miranda's 100th birthday.

altho synchonistically she was on my mind & even in my e-mails.

2 decades ago I threw a big party for her 80th. one of the guests -- Tom Beckett -- referencd that joyous evening in "Prolegomena to the Study of Great Cartoons." if I summon the strength today I'll search for some of the photos.

How spooky that we've all been thinking about her these days, though. I've been enjoying February (so far). The beginning of the ending of winter.
