Nora Ephron Died Today
I didn’t know Nora Ephron, but I wish I had. She had the ability to laugh at herself, and I liked that. She was also one of only a few modern writers able to say in words precisely what we were all thinking, and yet I suspect that she offended almost no-one.
We all have our favorite Nora Ephron movies, our favorite Nora Ephron quotes. The pain of her early death will always be with her family but my hope for them is that in time they can look back on her best lines and laugh with the rest of us.
In the meantime, thank you Nora for sharing your humour, your neuroses, and especially your writing. You will be missed.
“Above all, be the heroine of your life, not the victim.” - Nora Ephron
