One thing I didn’t mention about Nora Ephron in my last post was the fact that she’s technically Jewish (which means at this time she doesn’t actively practice her faith).

After I wrote my post for May 19, I began to think about the amazing amount of writing talent I admire which falls under the female/Jewish banner. Contemporary writers such as Fran Lebowitz, Natalie Goldberg, Judy Blume and Erica Jong all come quickly to mind.

So I’ve been reconsidering my options. Maybe I don’t really want to be Nora Ephron when I grow up. Maybe I just want to live in New York City, eat kosher pickles from the sidewalk vendors, and gain writing inspiration while Crossing Delancey.

(If you actually missed that Jewish movie reference, you owe it to yourself to look it up!)
