Every day in suburbia, there was a little girl with dark hair and blue eyes that would wait for her momma's Photoplay or her dad's Life magazine to arrive at the house.
She would search out photos of her favorite stars; Marilyn Monroe, Veruschka (super model from the 60s), Gloria Steinem (she fascinates!), and Elizabeth Taylor.
She would stare at photos of Elizabeth, look at the color of the eyes, then look in the mirror and try to convince myself that her eyes were as violet as those were. That any other human on earth could look like her. She didn't believe any did.
