Why I'm a Fan
Barbra Streisand has been THE voice in my life for as long as I can remember. And I'm not just speaking of her singing talent, extraordinary as it is.
To give you an example, I remember when I was 16 years old, I am now 45, and was babysitting the next door neighbor's little boy. He had gone to sleep. I was flipping TV channels and found 'The Way We Were', and I was lucky because it was just beginning.
My eyes were GLUED to the TV set. I really took this movie within me, you know? And what I learned is to have love and respect and kindness for my future former lovers. The last scenes between she and Redford really spoke to me. They could've been angry, they could've been snobbish or put walls up but...there they were....wide open for each other to understand.
I realized then that was the best way to be, no matter what. I eventually learned it would be much better to remember back with fondness and joy and not anger and regret. Had I chose the latter, I would've been carrying around a lot of bs inside of me that would eventually hurt me and turn me into a bitter woman.
It was a true lesson in love or, more to the point, after love has gone. The lesson stayed with me all these years and I've never forgotten it or Ms Streisand or Mr Redford.
