I am taking part in the April A to Z Blog Challenge. Every day in the month of April, I will post a blog entry related to a letter of the alphabet. I gave it some thought and wanted to keep it in line with what I write about here on Waldina.com and came up with famous quotes, people that inspire and music that resonates with me.

  1. I remember seeing the Dick Cavett show with Katharine Hepburn when it was first on. Spectacular, of course. She had arrived at the studio early in the day – or possibly the day before she was scheduled to be there. She met Cavett, he showed her around, & she said ‘Well, shall we do it?’ So they went ahead with the interview early. I loved the Dick Cavett show & always enjoyed his more intellectual approach to interviews to the more raucous style on the other late night shows, and he always took more time with each guest. Hepburn was her charming, unique self and Dick Cavett helped us all see more of her than we’d seen before. He was visibly charmed by her too, and so were the viewers. Masterpiece!
