“Who is Katharine Hepburn? It took me a long time to create that creature.”
HAPPY BIRTHDAY KATHARINE HEPBURN | May 12, 1907 - June 29, 2003
With me, it’s up every day at five. Big breakfast. I get it myself. Fruit, eggs, bacon, chicken livers, toast, marmalade, coffee. On a tray. Carry it back to bed. Lovely the silence of the early hours. Do all my studying and thinking as I eat and drink. The sun rises. You seldom see it. But light comes. Misty. Slowly clearing. Light rains. Heavenly climate for a freckled skin. Then a cold bath or shower. A bike ride if I’m read early—before the car gets there. Go to work around seven.
