Mary Tyler Moore Dies

Good-bye, Laura Petrie and Mary Richards ... another legend has passed. I remember her fondly watching all of her shows back in the day and following most of her life and work. Many of her beloved co-workers are still alive including Dick Van Dyke, Carl Reiner, Betty White, Valerie Harper, Ed Asner, Cloris Leachman... more. Mary was born in Brooklyn. She became a feminist icon with her hit 1970 sitcom The Mary Tyler Moore Show. As Mary Richards, Moore was the unthinkable - a single career woman on television, out to make it on her own (as the show's iconic theme song described), without the help of a man. It was a progressive concept that marked a shift in popular and political culture - and would go on to influence a generation of women, including Oprah Winfrey, and inspire them to visualized a world for themselves outside of simply being a wife and homemaker.

Mary Tyler Moore Quotes

Ellie with a Mary Tyler Moore flip hair-do in 1960 - age 17.

This was 6 years after my UFO experience and years away from
embracing my purpose, so I just enjoyed life on planet Earth.

The road ahead was filled with great adventures ...
but the knowledge given to me in 1954 would come to pass through the decades.

"You're gonna make it after all ... "

I too have worn my peacoat and tossed my hat in the air.

Ends with a brief meditation.
