inspiration: i love you, lucy
Ever since I was a child, there have been two actresses I have looked up to. Not because they are the best in their field (though they are not half bad) but because they had a lot of guts & hutzpah to both get where they got to (despite coming from hard backgrounds) & to really rise above - both in the acting and the social worlds.
With my grandmother living with us this month due to a hip injury, I have had to limit what I watch on TV. She's older, so my regularly scheduled programming (like 'How I Met Your Mother' or 'Law & Order: SVU') may not make sense to her. That means we've been watching a lot of 'The Price is Right', 'The Today Show' & just about anything on the Game Show Network.
Recently, however, 'I Love Lucy' has started to creep into our daily routine. I don't remember who originally put it on, me or her - all I know is that I've quickly begun to fall in love with Lucille Ball again - both the actress & the character.
She's funny, beautiful & passionate - everything I hope to be one day.
Who are some of your favorite 'classic' actresses?
