Goodbye Lena

I don't know about you, but Lena Horne (June 30, 1917 – May 9, 2010) was my absolute, most favorite icon. Words are only too poor to describe the size of that woman, whom I deeply admired and loved... Known for her involvement in many social and political organizations, with an unsurpassed class, talent and beauty, in the perfect and complete sense of the word, she didn't fit into stereotypes and inspired countless people with her life and example.

Ms. Horne: I know it's strange, but... I even cried a little when I heard you passed away. I know you will be singing with the angels up above, but still... I will miss you, Lady Lena. You will always be you, and you will be like nobody else.


  1. So sorry one of your icons has passed away. She'll be an inspiration always.
    Thanks for adding my work to this beautiful post.

  2. She will certainly be remembered!
    this post is a wonderful tribute to a great artist and I'm truly honored you chose my work to be included in it.
    thank you...

  3. Thank you for including my necklace in your lovely post! Lena Horne and artists like her that possess actual talent, dignity, and class are rarer by the minute, aren't they? She will be missed.
