Look to love

I wrote until 3 am last night. All very personal and not anything that can be shaped into a story. And never did my class reading. Funny how productivity can be somehow unproductive.
I have to run to work in 15 minutes, but I just wanted to make a comment that I want forever cemented in my mind.

While watching Franco Zefferelli's Romeo and Juliet in my Shakespeare on film class (which is taught by a professor and includes writing assignments unlike any other semester before where there was no work) I couldn't help but stare in awe at the beautiful woman that played Juliet. Or rather, girl. She was only fifteen when filming and yet she possesses a glorious beauty, and also shared her breasts. I couldn't help but think, wow, I want to look like her. But then I probably wouldn't stop looking at the mirror.

Olivia Hussey, gorgeous.

Olivia was 14 when they shot the bedroom scene. A timeless beauty.
