I am reading Fay Weldon’s portraits of the ‘stars’... Of Jamie Lee Curtis she says, “she ran her hands over the littlest [child] and his face lit up from inside…” and of Patti Lupone, “stars serve their own genius; celebrities serve themselves…[she] is a star, not a celebrity.” I’d love to be able to write like this… There is a difference between “truth”, and the ability to reflect a spark of light in people, that sometimes even they are unaware of. Good grammar is a skill, and can be learned. Generosity of spirit, on the other hand, is a gift.
