Long Live the Dame

A few weeks ago, I sat down to write a letter to one of my personal heroes, Dame Judi Dench.  I kept it short as I’m sure she gets many letters, though I could have written much more.  I simply stated that I believed her to be the greatest actress of our time, of both the stage and screen.  I have been moved deeply by her art.  I also noted how much I enjoyed her jovial spirit as written in the anecdotes of the John Miller biographies, as well as her genuine affection for her fellow artists.  I tried not to make it too flowery.  She simply IS.

Today, I received a signed photograph from DJD in the mail!  I just adore her.  This has made my life.
