Hats off to a great broad



I’m totally shocked. Last night I dreamt about Elizabeth Taylor. We were seated next to each other on a train. She was incredibly beautiful and reading a fashion magazine featuring her on the cover  We were having a conversation about something and I remember saying how honoured I was to be sitting next to her which she brushed aside and continued talking to me. In the dream she was incredibly sassy and down to earth.

I woke to the sad news that she has died at 79.

Dreams are such strange and puzzling things. I’ve often dreamt lines and scenes from my books. But never have I dreamt about Elizabeth Taylor.

I remember Johnny Depp in an interview saying he had become good friends with Elizabeth Taylor and how down-to-earth and what a terrific broad she was.

They don’t make them like Taylor much anymore, alas.

RIP Elizabeth. Hats off to a great iconic dame. xx

I’ve been through it all, baby, I’m mother courage.

    Totally hear you! And it is weird about dreams…I had a strange thing happen to me when Diana died. I was reading a book about Royalty and the different kings and queens the night before and I put the book down open on the page of Charles and Diana…Then the next morning I found out about her dying…slightly weird huh? xxx

    I just found your website from over at Posy/Jane’s and wanted to say hi. 🙂 That is a beautiful dream, but what an especially sad note to wake up on–like losing someone you had just met.
