Mary I and Philip II & Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton
Via Tea at Trianon and Mary Tudor, Renaissance Queen, the story of a pearl and a portrait. My husband and I were in New York City when we heard about Elizabeth Taylor's death. The lights of Broadway were dimmed in her memory Friday, March 25th while we were nearby. At the time, however, we were celebrating the True Light come to the world, at a Pontifical Mass for the Solemnity of the Annunciation of Our Lord at Holy Innocents on West 37th Street--after eating a delicious meal at Ginger's on Seventh Avenue. (I ordered the Braised Whole Fish with Scallions and Mushrooms!) Earlier in the day, we visited St. Patrick's Cathedral, where the statue of St. Patrick was still decorated with flowers for his feast.
