Happy Birthday Marilyn Monroe (1926-1962)

I just want to take this moment to remember one of the most beautiful women of the 20th century and of my lifetime, Marilyn Monroe, whose birthday is June 1. She would have been 84 years old this week. She was beloved around the world not only for her innate sensuality but for her compelling undisguised vulnerability. I believe that was her true beauty but I am not sure she ever understood that.

"My illusions didn't have anything to do with being a fine actress. I knew how third rate I was. I could actually feel my lack of talent, as if it were cheap clothes I was wearing inside. But, my God, how I wanted to learn, to change, to improve!" Marilyn Monroe


  1. well said, Maureen. Happy B-day Marilyn

  2. Nice tribute, Maureen. She really was gorgeous wasn't she!

  3. She was one of my favorites. I think she just wanted to be whole and loved. And she didn't know how to find it.
