Britney “speaking” Spanish
"I am smitten with Edith Bouvier Beale.
I have a greater desire to just express my heartfelt admiration for her as an inspirational figure who managed to make something memorable and genuinely beautiful of her life in the midst of a terrible predicament. Her sharp wit, savvy determination, ebullient expressiveness, and passionate energy are balanced by charming self-depreciation, disarming candor, and a willingness to get real and vulnerable on a moment’s notice when the story she’s telling requires her to drop the guard a bit.
In short, Little Edie is a ‘staunch character,’ whose strength and intelligence come through clearly when one takes the time to absorb and reflect on all the content found on this disc. I’ll leave it to others to weigh in with their diagnoses of mental illness or delusions of grandeur. To me, she’s a survivor whose experiences in life, after ‘Grey Gardens’, had found it’s audience, validated her early, undeniable struggles and setbacks— a patron saint and a beautiful soul.
She and we are all fortunate that the creative spark of her individuality was preserved in a format that can be easily shared, studied, and admired.” [x]
