November has always been a cruel month: Barbara and Joey Stefano (his anniversary is today) and then the ones I loved but never knew: Freddie Mercury, Lotte Lenya, Nick Drake and many more.
Today we are devastated to learn that Beatriz has died. She was one of the most talented artistes we have ever seen--in Lisbon she once sang at a party just for us. Beatriz was prickly but warm, generous and funny. We loved her very, very much and are going to miss her. Now all that he have left are happy memories, a few pictures, and of course her records.
Sleep in peace, dear friend.
