Forever In Our Memory (Happy Birthday Sharon Tate)



Sharon Tate is unfulfilled potential, manifested by us into immortality.
She will forever be remembered for a heinous event. For an evil moment in time. Art always helps us cope through an unspeakable tragedy. And sometimes, after time heals and the events become hazier we honor them by keeping their memory alive.
What I love about Quentin Tarantino's latest film "Once Upon A Time In Hollywood" (aside from the brilliant recreation of late 1960's Hollywood - widely recognized as films second 'Golden Age') is that Tate was given such treatment.
We get to watch as she rises to become a Hollywood starlet (through the magnificent performance of Margot Robbie) and we see her in happiness...and hope.
Oh, and that ending!
For those that haven't seen the film, let's just say it gives Tate the Hollywood ending she deserved.
My favorite quote from the great Stephen King is 'we make up horrors to cope with the real ones.' I've always felt this to be true.
Some of the best in the genre of horror reflects the horrors of real life...as a way to move on.
That's what art does. That's why it's necessary in our world.
But sometimes...art can change the colors of horror and give a beautiful what-could-have-been into a fairy tale ending.
Happy birthday Sharon Tate.
Maybe your memory will always be linked with the monsters. But may their names fail us. And may we forever embrace yours.
