  2. And..."able was I ere I saw Elba."

    Audrey Hepburn was the woman I aspired to be as a young girl. With feminine sophistication, she exuded class and an unattainable elegance for those who wished to emulate. Alas, I fell short but admire her nonetheless. Too soon gone.

  3. AH never deviated from 'class'. Whether girlish or womanly, she carried herself with grace. The way she spoke, that European-British-learned English which has some counterpart in America's Eastern seaboard. You're right: elegance. But her screen vulnerability-cum-wits kept her ever away from being charged with snobbery. And her offscreen love of children and charity toward them made her specially human and worthy.
