Jane Fonda's being and time
Jane Fonda, 76, knows we are but specks in the temporal wind. "I have become so wonderfully, terribly aware of time, of how little of it I have left," she wrote on her website shortly after going all googly and weepy at Kerry Washington's baby shower. Fonda says "pretty things, kind deeds, sad stories," and all kinds of other things reduce her to tears.
"I find my emotions are way more accessible than they were when I was younger, and I've come to feel it has to do with age." Knowing how little time she has left, Fonda writes, "everything becomes so precious."
