DGMS has most certainly breathed life into her observation.

Nora Ephron was the author of several of my favorite movies....When Harry Met Sally, You've Got Mail, Silkwood, Heartburn, Mixed Nuts, Michael, Bewitched, Hanging Up, Julia & Julia, My Blue Heaven and, of course, Sleepless in Seattle. It always felt like she was saying what I was thinking, but in a funnier, more sensitive way. Her characters were full and honest and quirky and everything I wanted to be. You are so right Linda, she "got it". I will miss her and her movies. RIP Nora, and keep em laughing til I get there!

Nora Ephron has been one of my top 5 heroes since the 1980's. Towards the end of a terrible marriage, I saw her masterpiece, "Heartburn," and it gave me courage and made me laugh. If you've never seen it, I urge you to run - not walk - to your nearest DVD store and buy it. It is, and will remain, my favorite Nora Ephron film of all time, simply because of the deep, resonating chord it struck in my heart at the time it was released.

No one could express male/female relationships better than Nora. The woman KNEW. I'm still so stunned that she's gone... in my mind, she was ageless and timeless. Thank heavens she has left us a legacy of laughter. I will never forget her.

and i will read Heartburn again this weekend.

Some of my most favorite movies - you know, the ones you stop and watch on cable when you pass them (even though you have them on DVD) - were written by Nora Ephron. I would go see a movie that she wrote simply because SHE wrote it. She will be greatly missed!

"I'll have what she's having!" has to be one of the greatest / most memorable movie lines ever! Gosh I loved her characters and the stories she used to introduce them to us.

Nicely written Linda!

The part that struck me was this portion of her quote on blogs: "one of the reasons for blogging was to start the conversation and to create the community that comes together briefly to talk about the things they might not be talking about if you hadn't written your blog." THIS IS DGMS!!! We came to the blog...and became a community...based off the numerous conversations begun thanks to Linda's blog entries. We became family.

Rest In Peace Nora...you definitly GOT it when it came to life's truths. May have to go watch You've Got Mail again (one of my faves)

Amen.

"Heartburn" is one of my favorite movies/books as well. RIP.

Linda, it's too bad that the two of you never met & had the chance to collaborate on anything....now that would have been worth the price of admission!!!!

Wonderful tribute to a woman who I never met, but felt like she was a friend because she simply and hilariously,"got it".

Have to watch "You've Got Mail whenever I see it when I am channel surfing. Love it and all her other movies. She had class..

She wrote great stuff. You have to read "I Feel Bad About My Neck." You will die laughing. Nora could observe like nobody else. A loss for anyone who likes smart writing.

Love Nora Ephron's work. What an amazingly talented lady! RIP Nora! Gotta watch "You've Got Mail" now!
