“The rest was, given those involved, what one might expect.”
“given those involved” We are talking about my family at our Family Funeral. Christine was our first death in the family.
“Hugh Bromily, Khara’s husband and Episcopal priest, conducted the service with taste and dignity. Raphael spoke, along with Karin: two friends from childhood. The rest was, given those involved, what one might expect. Vic was cornering
whatever woman he could; Rosemary came in drunk, lost in her story that she was the only seventeen-year-old to turn down Errol Flynn’s advance.
”Oh it was just awful.” Lillian recalls. ‘Rosemary was shouting that Shannon was late, ‘and ought to have her butt kicked.’ I don’t know all what she said after that but
she had her silver flask with her and it was getting rough.”
My father, Vic Presco, was there but he sat in the back and left early. He hired a photographer to take photos of his family in his stead.
Vicki told me our aunt Lillian regretted the things she said about her sister on her death bed. However, Vicki and Mark got to read the draft of Tom Snyder’s lies before his biography was published. Garth Benton probably read it to. These three were only concerned about taking profit from the movie. They didn’t care about the surving artis in the Presco family with seven years of recovery. This was the Family Miracle because Christine’s funeral fell on her first sober birthday. What is the miracle?…..Christine did not die a abusive drunk.
Tom Snyder, and Stacey Pierrot, tried to get me to sign a contract for my contribution to my family story. If I had signed it, then I would not have been able to write and publish anything about Christine. The words of the two family artists, would be silenced. This is why I bring back our Muse.
Vicki Presco betrayed our aunt Lillian, whom I now forgive so that she can enter the Kingdom of Heaven.
Above is the oldest surviving Dutch painting of the Rover/Roover family who married into the Rosemondt family. These are Lillian’s kindred. They were real knights.
Lillian also dated Errol Flynn at seventeen years of age, and spurned his advances. However, she did sleep with Flynn’s best friend who came to the Rosamond home one morning, serenading all four of the beautiful Rosamond women. My grandmother chased him out of the house with a broom, in her long white nightgown, her long hair trailing after her.
The Dutch and the Germans had a hero that was similar to Robin Hood. Floris Von Rosemund, or, Rosemondt. Floris means “flower” Lily and Rose……Rosamond.
Hugh Bromily dies in March. Her obituary does not mention she wrote the script for two terrible movies that I debated whether I should critique them. What I saw was this, these movies degraded men and women. In the Chosen One the bad men were brought down to such a disgusting level it is hard to watch them. Good Villains make good movies. These bad guys are sub-humans. Why, because they are being set up to be killed by beautiful heroines. While men are shot dead just for looking at someone the wrong way, for a woman to kill – anyone – the dead have to be way below them. Khara had to be considering the viewers of this movie. It is aimed at male audience. I don’t care how bad a dude is, males don’t like one of their kind shot down by a beautiful babe. The same would be applicable to bad women.
What I don’t get, is the Kharah professes to be a healing Christian. But, she had a price. She needed the money.
Lillian did not need the money, nor did Mark – or Vicki! Vicki and Mark turned on Christine and I – out of vengeance!
These Darklings squealed with delight when they got Lillian and Heather – another flower name – in their camp.
In Snyder’s book you find evidence that Christine was going to close the Rosamond gallery and go back with Circle Galleries in New York. Vicki said our sister wanted to see me again now that she was sober. Was I invited to her sober birthday party at Rocky Point? Of course I was, but, Vicki did not pass this invitation to me, because THEY were going to have a showdown with the famous artist, Rosamond, about the loans they made to her, and the Bankruptcy she filed.
I know Christie’s sponsor in AA told her to get rid of all the parasites that had glommed on to her success. I did no such thing. I am a pure artist, and my love for Christine, was pure. She was editing her autobiography. Once again, I was her beloved hero.
I have not received one red cent for all my words I have written about the two artists in my family – and their Muse.
The Red Shoes” (Danish: De røde sko) is a fairy tale by Danish poet and author Hans Christian Andersen first published by C.A. Reitzel in Copenhagen 7 April 1845 in New Fairy Tales. First Volume. Third Collection. 1845. (Nye Eventyr. Første Bind. Tredie Samling. 1845.). Other tales in the volume include “The Elf Mound” (Elverhøi), “The Jumpers” (Springfyrene), “The Shepherdess and the Chimney Sweep” (Hyrdinden og Skorstensfejeren), and “Holger Danske” (Holger Danske).
A peasant girl named Karen is adopted by a rich old lady after her mother’s death, and grows up vain and spoiled. Before her adoption Karen had a rough pair of red shoes, and now she tricks her adoptive mother into buying her a pair of red shoes fit for a princess. Karen repeatedly wears them to church, without paying attention to the service. She ignores the anger of her adopted mother and disapproving stares that even the holy images seem to express at her wearing red shoes in church. Her adoptive mother becomes ill, but Karen deserts her, preferring to attend a party in her red shoes. A mysterious soldier appears and makes strange remarks about what beautiful dancing shoes Karen has. Soon after, Karen begins to dance and she can’t stop. The shoes take over; she cannot control them and they are stuck to her feet. The shoes continue to dance, through fields and meadows, rain or shine, night and day, and through brambles and briars that tear at Karen’s limbs. She can’t even attend her adoptive mother’s funeral. An angel appears to her, bearing a sword, and condemns her to dance even after she dies, as a warning to vain children everywhere. Karen begs for mercy but the red shoes take her away before she hears the angel’s reply. Karen finds an executioner and asks him to chop off her feet. He does so but the shoes continue to dance, even with Karen’s amputated feet inside them. The executioner gives her a pair of wooden feet and crutches, and teaches her the criminals’ psalm. Thinking that she has suffered enough for the red shoes, Karen decides to go to church in order for the people to see her. However her amputated feet, still in the red shoes, dance before her, barring the way. The following Sunday she tries again, thinking of herself at least as good as the others in church, but again the dancing red shoes bar the way. Karen gets a job as a maid in the parsonage, but when Sunday comes she dares not go to church. Instead she sits alone at home and prays to God for help. The angel reappears, now bearing a spray of roses, and gives Karen the mercy she asked for: it is as though the church comes home to her and her heart becomes so filled with sunshine, peace, and joy that it bursts. Her soul flies on sunshine to Heaven, and no one there mentions the red shoes.
