Two Farewells

Sad news this morning of the death of actress Natasha Richardson, who suffered traumatic head injuries in a skiing accident in Canada on Monday. My heartfelt sympathies are extended to her husband, Liam Neeson, and their two sons, and her mother, Vanessa Redgrave.


And I can't imagine how the death of Folk great Odetta got past me! As an old folkie from the '60s, I was always inspired by her. She died on Tuesday at the age of 77. All my love and best energies to her family and friends.


Sorry for the confusion about Odetta. She died at the end of last year, but I forgot. Well, this entry will serve as my remembrance. Damned Hashimoto's got my memory again. Do you know, I still can't remember how to make the coffee? Instead of relying on what I've always known, I refer to what Nettl told me a couple of months ago when my coffee brain cell died.
