This month is one for big anniversaries both good and bad.
As for other anniversaries, we think of them as they seem unresolved in actuality or just in our own psyches. People are still pointing fingers at each other over the killing of JFK. It seems that most of us don't believe that the man they accused is necessarily the one who did it. There are so many conspiracy theories with this one that references to this incredibly tragic event are still being built into many movie and television scripts.
Another gentle soul died the same year as Harrison. Cary Grant is still considered the quintessential man of men, suave, funny, charming. He's still the model who many men try to emulate, the model who many women use as a yardstick to measure up their husbands or boyfriends.. I'll always remember him in "House Boat" and "Arsenic and Old Lace".
One of the most solemn segments of the Academy Awards is when they do a musical slide show "In Memoriam". I find it so sad that so many greats have already died. I'm such a vintage girl at heart that I miss them more than I am enamoured with current day icons. It's definitely true that in order to understand our present and our future, we need to look at the past.
