Forever Young







Talk amongst yourselves... Then you can shout out your answers.

If you could be immortalized in any creative form, by someone living or dead, what form would it take and who would create it?
1. I would opt for a caricature done by Al Hirschfeld. He was a brilliant artist whose drawings I looked forward to seeing in the NY Times and elsewhere. It's interesting to watch any caricature artist at work, especially someone as talented as Hirschfeld was.
How would he depict me? Would he make my nose big? My lips big? My freckles big?
2. Also in the realm of caricature art, I would pick Norman Mingo to duplicate me.

Who the heck is Norman Mingo, you ask? Just think of Alfred E. Neuman...MAD Magazine...cover art. Also a brilliant, detailed artist who made his MAD Magazine cover people come alive.

(revelation: I didn't know his name either. I had to GOOGLE "Mad Magazine Cover Art" to find the guy whose design style I enjoyed.)
3. And last but not least, I would like James Taylor ("Sweet Baby James") to write an original, wholesome, mellow but catchy tune about Pearl.
YOUR TURN..................!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm going with your choicesm exactly! LOVE James Taylor and his songs are poignant and beautiful...Hershfeld...Well, he was the Zenith, The Top, The Thestre Man....
And I've always like Alfred E, so that fellas okay with me, too.

Thanks for your caring words, Pearl....I have done very very little for days....Actually when using my Oxygen Machine on Monday---And it died on me...! They did come and exchange it for a new one within less than three hours. TG!
It was a tiny bit better today...But not enough to allow me to move around too much in the house, but they say, tomorrow will be cooler...I sure hope so...This has wiped me.

The thought of being immortalized kind of scares me. I'd like a garden planted in my memory, if anyone cares to do so.
