Saw yesterday in the Times obits that a "late-blooming actress" died. I think every person is great. It's just that most of us die before our genius is discovered.
And while we're on this subject, I'm reminded of a conversation I had with my daughter as she rode her bike to kindergarten one morning while I ran alongside.
“We’re famous,” she said.
“What do you mean?”
“Well, lots of people see us.”
“And we see them.”
“So everybody’s famous, sort of. Right?”
