The dreamy blue-eyed actor has finally gone. 😦 I know I’m reaching another phase in life when this infomration seems shocking. He was 83, afterall, so it was coming…he lead a long and full life, you could say. But, in my mind, he’s immortal….an icon and image of the screen and a time that doesn’t exist anymore. I’m always a little fascinated when I realize how times are changing. His passing is definitely another wave of change that closes the gap between me and that generation. It’s inevitable, I know, but something like Paul Newman passing is enough to give myself a momentary ‘shock’ of wakefulness.
