Between sips of coffee and putting my make-up on, I caught a segment on TV this morning with Linda Evans talking about her “Dynasty” days and what she’s done since those times in Hollywood. She’s made mistakes (plastic surgery), and moved out of Hollywood. Sounds like she’s moved on from her days as a famous TV star. She lives in Washington state in a sprawling setting and is content being by herself in life. She speaks briefly about her long-term relationship with musician Yanni and how she’s come to be OK without him.
What I enjoyed about the interview isn’t all that she spoke about the TV show she was on — I never watched it — but what she has come to believe in life. She loves people and loves cooking. You could hear the passion in her voice. “Forget acting,” she says about her own life.
She leaves us with some empowering words:
There is nothing you can’t have.
There is nothing you can’t do.”
