Failure to thrive

This is a term for infants in cribs who are not loved enough, and it comes from therapy.

So I was looking today at old pix of models from the 50’s and 60’s because this is a really pretty era, with glam — it won’t be until the 70’s that all of that begins to be crushed out of women.

So this is the model Capucine, who was friends with Hepburn.


She reminds me of Faye and also myself somewhat, and I like the way she has done those eyes, not overly done, but just simple glam.

She leapt to her death at 57.



So, I am realizing the terrible mistakes I have made, that almost led to the leap.

But I don’t want to.

The writer in me lived to tell this tale

leap or get out of the pain.

it’s the latter.
