my heart goes out

She was lovely because she was so understated, because she did the work & retreated to her privacy. She was in the "perfect" position to constantly be in the public eye, but chose another path.

I have a profound admiration for people who manage to find a stitch of sanity in the public eye.

I did not know her, but my heart goes out to her family, who lost her suddenly & much too soon.

We keep losing the people we need, dammit. Rest in Peace, Natasha Richardson. And prayers of comfort for your loved ones.

such a tragedy. something about the fact that initially she was "fine" makes it all the more hanting. rip.
