Shine On You Crazy Diamond

RIP Elizabeth

Her son Michael Wielding said it best:
"My Mother was an extraordinary woman who lived life to the fullest, with great passion, humor, and love. Though her loss is devastating to those of us who held her so close and so dear, we will always be inspired by her enduring contribution to our world. Her remarkable body of work in film, her ongoing success as a businesswoman, and her brave and relentless advocacy in the fight against HIV/AIDS, all make us all incredibly proud of what she accomplished. We know, quite simply, that the world is a better place for Mom having lived in it. Her legacy will never fade, her spirit will always be with us, and her love will live forever in our hearts."

And finally, not to be forgotten was her tremendous talent. Beautiful Elizabeth Taylor. In high school I slept beneath her pictures. Her picture hangs beside me in my office now, reminding me of all the wonderful things people can do when love, kindness, compassion and passion are your guide.
