Hi there. I’m looking forward to posting the first interview on the blog in the next couple of days before the end of 2013. The title of this small post comes from a song Better Midler would perform as her character Nanette and which appears on her 1977 album Live At Last. Bette biographer Mark Bego described Nanette as “the forlorn shopping bag woman who turns despair into optimism”. Isn’t that a perfect metaphor for New Year? Or maybe I’m just tired after the post Christmas sales. Guess I don’t have as much moxy as those really wanting 25% off of Ralph Lauren.
