We will miss you Nora Ephron

Nora Ephron died this week at 71. She wrote and directed many of my(and probably yours) favorite movies within the last 25 years: such classics as “When Harry Met Sally”(who can forget the scene in the cafe????), “Sleepless in Seattle”(top 5 movies for my daughter Julia and me…we cry every time they meet on the top of the Empire State building!!), and Julie and Julia, amongst others. She captured the dialogue between women and men with such humor and nuance, she made us laugh, she made us cry. Her voice, her wit will be greatly missed.
I listened to a wonderful interview yesterday with her recorded on the NPR program, Fresh Air, from 2006. I have posted the link here and I would like to share 2 of my favorite lines from this interview, which I believe sum up her wit and how she captures the essence of growing into mature adults:
“I take so many pills in the morning, it is a miracle that I have room for breakfast.”
When asked what her next 20 years might be like, she replied(and I paraphrase): “I think about today..and today I have been to a bakery. We live in a time when we have the best bread in the history of the world. I am going to eat that bread::”
Thank you Nora for all that you gave to us . We will miss you.
