Le parfum d'une femme

(0) Comments | Posted February 8, 2016 | 3:38 PM

Depuis que je suis adulte, je porte le parfum emblématique d'Oscar de la Renta, Oscar. Il a été lancé en 1977, l'année où je suis devenue actrice. Je me souviens de cette senteur poudrée, douce, légère et féminine qui mettait en valeur les femmes sans jamais leur nuire. Avec lui,...

Our Children Deserve a Hamilton Approach to Education

(53) Comments | Posted September 23, 2015 | 1:31 PM

So, the truth: I didn't watch my wonderful new show, Scream Queens, last night. I had seen it and love it for its funny, gory glory humor and truth-telling. I was only in New York City for one night and so I went instead to see Hamilton. I was lucky...

Bleed Then Lead

Isn't it always the way? In all societies?

First there is power. Then abuse of that power. Then there is protest. Then there is conflict. Then the reactions. Then the fight. Then the battle. Then the blood. Then the leadership promoting change.

그와 나의 향기 | 오스카 드 라 렌타를 추모하며

(0) Comments | Posted October 22, 2014 | 5:39 PM

난 어른이 된 후로 오스카 드 라 렌타의 '오스카(Oscar)'라는 향수를 평생 애용해 왔다. 내가 배우로 데뷔한 해인 1977년에 이 향수가 처음 나왔다. 너무 짙지 않으면서 부드럽고 순하고 여성스러운 향기는 나에게 잘 어울렸다. 젊은 시절 처음 내본 나만의 멋이었다고나 할까? 돌아가신 나의 어머니(배우 자넷 리)는 평생 에스티 로더의 '유스...

Óscar de la Renta: el aroma de una mujer

(0) Comments | Posted October 22, 2014 | 2:35 AM

He utilizado la fragancia Oscar, de Oscar de la Renta, durante toda mi vida adulta. Salió en 1977, el mismo año en el que yo me hice actriz. Me acuerdo del aroma a talco, suave, ligero, femenino, que halagaba y nunca restaba mérito. Fue mi primer momento de juventud en...

The Scent of a Woman

I have worn Oscar de la Renta's signature fragrance, Oscar, my whole adult life. It made its debut in 1977, the same year I became an actress. I remember the powdery, soft, gentle, feminine fragrance that complimented and never detracted. It was my first moment of individual style as a...

Tonight, at the All Star Game, Major League Baseball will honor a great, brave man -- an athlete who had to hide behind fear and shame while still trying to live up to his God given potential as a ball player.

His name was Glenn Burke and he was shamed...

납치된 여학생들의 어머니를 위해

(1) Comments | Posted May 12, 2014 | 5:26 PM


납치된 여학생의 어머니들. 불확실함에 옥죄는 그들의 심정을 어찌 알 수 있을까. 그들은 자신의 자녀가 어디에 있는지도 알지 못한다. 자신의 아이가 다쳤는지, 홀로 고립되어 있는지 역시 모른다. 하지만 아이가 공포에 휩싸여 있다는 것은 안다. 이들의 마음은 상상이 일으키는 공포로 가득하다. 불확실함이 불러일으키는 치명적 독성은 온몸...

Mothers of the Missing

Mothers of the missing. Whose hearts are placed in a vise of uncertainty. Who don't know where their children are. If they are hurt. If they are alone. Who know that their children are living in terror. Whose minds are a horror...

Happy Mother Earth Day?

(47) Comments | Posted April 22, 2014 | 10:34 AM

Would you do this to your own mother?

Would you starve her, ravage her, drill her, strip her, pollute her, poison her, frack her, crowd her, pave her, drain her, extract her, constrain her, imprison her?

We call her our Mother earth for a reason.

She is the source. The...

Mort de Philip Seymour Hoffman: Bonjour tristesse, bonjour la vie

Aujourd'hui, je fête mes quinze ans de sobriété, libérée de l'emprise de mon addiction secrète aux anti-douleurs et à l'alcool.

Je me suis endormie hier soir en imaginant la douleur de la famille, des enfants, des amis, des collègues et des fans de Mr. Hoffman. Son talent, si puissant,...

Today is the fifteenth anniversary of my living clean and sober, free from the grips of a long, secret prescription painkiller and alcohol addiction.

I went to sleep last night imagining the grief of the family, children, friends, colleagues and fans of Mr. Hoffman. His gifts, so powerful, his demons,...

Birth and Death: 11/22/1963

It was my fifth birthday the day JFK was killed in Dallas. I remember nothing about it. My mother was very close to the president and his family -- the Lawfords and the Shrivers -- and had performed with my father at JFK's famous snowed-in inaugural. I understand my birthday...

The gay soldier who openly challenged the government military policy of Don't Ask, Don't Tell died yesterday in a traffic accident. He was 36. His name was Darren Manzella. He was married in July. When I read that this morning I thought about courage. His courage to serve...

Ms. Jolie is a heroine to many. Me included. There are very few public figures who do it all, put their money where their mouth is, suit up and show up and, as Eleanor Roosevelt said, "do the thing you think you cannot do." She is brave and bold and...

Please let them be.

Please allow them to be with their families.

Please let them heal.

Please let them recover and reenter.

Please let them start the long healing process without the media's needs coming first.

Please hope that they get the psychological and spiritual help they need.

Please don't...

Moment de vérité

En 1977, Glenn Burke, un joueur afro-américain pour l'équipe des Dodgers (Los Angeles), et homosexuel dans le placard, a été le premier à faire un "tope là" à Dustin Baker, dans le stade Dodger. Deux ans plus tard, il ne pratiquait plus le baseball, ayant été transféré aux A's de...

In 1977, Glenn Burke, an African-American, closeted, gay Dodger, delivered the first ever high five to Dusty Baker at Dodger Stadium. Two years later he was out of baseball, having been traded to the A's and then not played by Billy Martin, who famously said, "I won't play a faggot...

April 15 now so sadly known for both. One a privilege for living in a free county, the other perhaps a price.

Images once unprintable now come with a graphic warnings but are accessible and ingrained in our minds. Perhaps it's important to be able to bear witness to the...
