Wonderful spin. Isn't it funny how sometimes the people we see as sophisticated and glamorous and all put together... really aren't? I had a teacher I looked up to like that. I thought she was the greatest and coolest person I ever met and found out how many problems she actually had and just hid from others... so sad.

Wasn't sure if I posted this for you. This is my link to my spin: http://pegbur7.wordpress.com/2012/03/30/model-behaviour/

I'm glad that she was still beautiful and vivacious when you last saw her. And I hope she is happy and has been able to put some of those demons to rest. But what fun to have such a glamorous "big sister" to hang out with when you were young! Such good memories!

My Spin is up, and I'm grateful you live on the West Coast. It gave me a couple hours to write my post this morning! ;)



What a sad story of Helen. There are many incredibly talented people plagued by inner demons, and still they manage to influence of by their brilliance and vibrancy. It's interesting how people of our childhoods have such influence over our futures, career or otherwise. Here's my spin http://suzicate.wordpress.com/2012/03/30/for-the-love-of-words/

I was really hoping for Helen to turn into a famous Helen, I love seeing people acheive their dreams.


What a great spin! I felt like I was along for the ride, admiring Helen and fearing her a bit too. It's sad that her life has been so hard, but what an inspiration she was to you!


It's always interesting to me to learn who other people look up to. I've had a few inspirations in my life, almost all of whom have failed to live up to whatever it was I thought made them so spectacular. Be it finances, psychosis, drugs, or plain old laziness, there is probably only one person to whom I can still look and say, "Her. I want to be her." And she isn't even real, nothing more than a fictional character. However, I must admit that the actress, Phyllicia Rashad, who played Claire Huxtable and brought her to life for me, is still my role model. Still.


No long labor for this one but it is a long labor of love:


Without those people to open a wider world, we would never find dreams to have.
In a way, Nick is my role model because he has done so much and he always, always encourages me to be more than I think I can.
