good one, Nora.

Nora Ephron passed away last night and I wish I could have personally told her thank you, if only for "You've Got Mail", although I've read all her works and seen all of her movies. KK is one of my favorite movie characters of all time.

I have a favorite quote of hers and I love it, mainly because my brother and I talk about the subject matter, frequently. Also, I identify.

I've never been afraid to admit that I'm crazy. Not in a scary way but in a mostly-good way.  It's simply that I have my crazy under control and I know it's there.  That's the magic (and the challenge).  All the dear people in my life have a healthy dose of looney.

It's all those people that think they've got it together that you have should worry about. 

“Insane people are always sure that they are fine. It is only the sane people who are willing to admit that they are crazy.”  -NE

Thank you, Nora.  For that quote and for your come-to-life stories.


  1. I just heard this tonight on the news and was so sad. I've read all her books, seen the movies, etc., too. Nora was always on my list of people to have to the one amazing dinner party of my life. In my reality, we'd become good friends after that. Text friends, in fact. But I guess that will never be.

  2. So glad I've got kindred spirits out in the blogging world who are mourning Nora's death right along with me. Oh to be that kind of storyteller...

  3. well then I guess I'm semi-sane then? because I realize and embrace my crazy?
    great quote

  4. friend. yes. what a gem she was!

    and you already know, but, hallelujah for her work! kk is my very most fave too:)

    love you xoxo
