Thank You Nora! In Appreciation Nora Ephron

"Whatever you choose, however many roads you travel, I hope that you choose not to be a lady, I hope you will find some way to break the rules and make a little trouble out there. And I also hope that you will choose to make some of that trouble on behalf of women." Nora Ephron to the graduating class of Wellesley College 1996.

She was a writer,essayist,screenwriter,director,producer,Oscar nominated filmmaker,blogger... but most essentially Nora Ephron was funny-at her core she saw in the darkest corners and in the most human occasions the Funny especially in the lives of women.  She was so wise and in her later years philosophized through her humor hitting the "oh my god yes" nerve for every woman and made us smile,cry and believe in ourselves as women.

Nora Ephron also gave us permission to be romantic and believe that you can fall in love with your best friend ("When Harry Met Sally"), hold out for that right one guy ("Sleepless in Seattle") and realize that even icons are real people too("Julie and Julia")--but Nora Ephron was also a woman who believed that prescribed roles were to be kicked to the curb and that there is humor in everyone's world no matter the age or stage.  Her voice and her words and her wisdom are there for all of us to get through even her loss with---Thank you Nora no one can fill your heels.

"Be the Heroine of Your Life not the victim"-Nora Ephron
