Flowers With A Lady
It is 1954 and The Big Apple welcomes her with parades, radio interviews, and television appearances. Three out of four Americans, already addicted to frozen foods, watch her on black and white 12 inch sets. In a short time t.v.
dinners will replace conversation at the family dinner table. The thirty prosperous people who have purchased colored sets see her slender fingers move across piano keys like white sea anemones sliding over the bleached bones of a dead blowfish.
Floating in mid-air as if by magic, a dozen yellow roses, her trademark calling card to immortality, sit inside a glass vase on the grand piano. She turns her head to look at the audience and plays so enchantingly that they believe, for the first time
in their cultured lives, they are hearing the music of the spheres, measured movements of celestial bodies.
