I love you, Eartha
My mom and I had a wonderful Christmas together. We had the news on when we both saw Eartha Kitt had died. I can't explain how much Eartha means to both me and my mom over the years. Eartha's music was always playing in the house. Ever since I watched her as Catwoman in the Batman tv series I was hooked on her too. She is a woman of dazzling talent, beauty, sensuality, strength.
I met the legendary Ms. Kitt when I was a little girl. My mom took me to one of her concerts in the city. I waited on line to say hello after her show. I wanted to tell her how much I loved her as Catwoman. She was and always will be Catwoman to me She was so sweet to me and told me I was such a pretty little girl. I loved her even more after that. My mom and I both got to see her together on Broadway in: Timbuktu and The Wild Party.
I am going to do an another and longer tribute to Eartha at a later date. Her passing has hit me hard. I feel like a part of my family is gone. Even writing this much makes me sad. I'm going to end this by saying: I love you, Eartha.
I love her in this. Here it is: Eartha Kitt singing I want to be Evil.
Happy Monday,my friends. Here is something I filmed in my local park. Enjoy! The words and voice are all me.
Wow. I can't believe this is my 200th post. I use to worry when I first started Swanofdreamers I would run out of things to talk about!...
