Natalie Wood: The Soul That Forgave
|Natalie Wood, captured by Steve Schapiro, sometime in the 1960s.|
When a loved and trusted person--a person to whom you have confessed; a person who has witnessed your flaws and loved you anyway--leaves, disappears, vanishes, the sin remains, and all of the comfort of forgiveness follows the soul that forgave.
Where does it go? Other than in the memory? The deep memory.
But I have these people--I have Natalie--deep within me. Safe, silent, comfortable with my sins.
