Thanks @norbuck. 😍 I just looked at the calendar and realized my father passed away 30 years ago today. I remember that morning as though it happened yesterday. We had been taking turns sitting by his bedside and I had been there all night (he had lung cancer and was in intensive care.) My mother came early to relieve me and I was walking back to the hotel, which was across the street from the hospital. I was at the pedestrian bridge when something told me, “don’t leave; go back and sit with your mother.” I walked back to find her sitting in the waiting room, while the nurses attended to my dad at the changing of the shift. Suddenly a nurse came out and told us it was near the end and that we should call the rest of the family. My brothers, sister and niece joined us—we were all there as he passed. It was as peaceful as these things go. He was there and then he suddenly dropped his body like a suit of clothes. I’ve always marveled at the moment I stopped and turned back. Something told me to stay, to be there for my mom. And whatever it was, that prompted my impulse—the mysterious voice within—is the very thing that most gives me comfort in this life. There is a place within all of us that is beyond time, that exists in an eternal now. Thirty years have passed but my dad’s energy continues to exist, humming like a vibration, reminding me now as I look at the date. “To Nature nothing can be added; from Nature nothing can be taken away; the sum of her energies is constant, and the utmost man can do in the pursuit of physical truth, or in the applications of physical knowledge, is to shift the constituents of the never-varying total. The law of conservation rigidly excludes both creation and annihilation. Waves may change to ripples, and ripples to waves; magnitude may be substituted for number, and number for magnitude; asteroids may aggregate to suns, suns may resolve themselves into flora and fauna, and floras and faunas melt in air: the flux of power is eternally the same. It rolls in music through the ages, and all terrestrial energy — the manifestations of life as well as the display of phenomena — are but the modulations of its rhythm.” —John Tyndall
I loved reading this book on tape. 😍 Repost from @emmyshmemily using @RepostRegramApp - Was listening to this audiobook this morning with Griz and I don't know how I never noticed that it was Betty Buckley I was listening to! I have been listening to this book on tape for years and even bought the book with the movie when I was in highschool I have no clue how that didn't even phase me that that's who it was #bettybuckley #audiobooks #buffalogirls #read #oblivious #realization #greatwaytostarttheday #recommended
#TBT When I was Dixie Scott in the American Classic film “Tender Mercies” when Dixie sees her ex husband Mac played by the incredible Robert Duvall. for first time in a while. My incredible wig was made by the great @paul_huntley_wigs & my beautiful costumes were designed by the wonderful Jane Greenwood! 🤗 Repost from @thurst08 using @RepostRegramApp - Betty Buckley...

Three dozen yellow roses from our Presenter at The Benedum in Pittsburgh Artistic Director Van Kaplan! I love Van. I worked with him at Casa Manana in Ft.

Nice meeting Devan last night! 😍 Repost from @dtongish using @RepostRegramApp - What a big night for Devan, meeting Tony award-winning Actress Betty Buckley! It’s a special honor because Devan received the 2019 Betty Lynn Buckley award for Best Female Actor in a Musical. It’s a moment Devan will never forget! 💕#HelloDollyDSM
Thank you, @anne_fields! 😻 Repost from @anne_fields using @RepostRegramApp - Saw the preview for the movie Cats this past weekend. Not sure how I feel about it yet but I will still see it. I’m sure Jennifer Hudson is great but Betty Buckley is now & always will be Grizabella to me.
Repost from @nytopinion using @RepostRegramApp - "Trump’s going to get re-elected, isn’t he?" Thomas Friedman has heard that question a lot. In each case, when he drilled down to ask why, it all came back to the recent Democratic debates. "I think a lot of Americans were shocked by some of the things they heard there. I was," he writes. Thomas's advice for the road ahead? "Democrats: This is not complicated! Just nominate a decent, sane person, one committed to reunifying the country and creating more good jobs," and that candidate can win — the revolution can wait. #election2020 #2020election #demdebate #trump #votevotevote #democrats #democraticdebate #nytopinion

Thank you, Norman. ❤️ It’s my big sister Betty Lynn’s 72nd birthday, so it’s another opportunity to express how much I appreciate who she is and has always been to me! She always has my back, has always been there to teach and encourage me. I owe my career to my sister too. Shortly after I graduated from the film school at USC she was starring in the film TENDER MERCIES, which was shooting near my hometown in Waxahachie, Texas. She happened to hear that the editor was looking for a local assistant and she told him, “My brother can do it.” And so it happened. She has always believed in me, always looked out for me, has always been there for me in good times and bad. We have had so many adventures together (including ghost stories when we both lived at the Chateau Marmont, where she put me up while I was in college.) I am so fortunate to have had her as one of my companions in this lifetime. Betty Lynn, I wish you many happy returns and so much love. #BettyBuckley
With my beloved friend David Bowen! So happy to see him & his husband Bennett! ❤️ Repost from @bowenandcompany using @RepostRegramApp - Thank you @blbuckley for your generous, often hilarious, amazing and deeply moving performance in Hello Dolly. In your hands, this 1964 Tony Award winning show - revived in a traditional and gorgeous production - becomes somehow very relevant. It is a testament to your masterful talent and commitment to “keeping it real always.” Oh what I learned from you...not just about acting but about myself, life and responsibility. Thank you for being a great gift in my life and I know in so many others as well. I feel filled after seeing you last night as I always do and am so happy to have shared the experience with close friends and my family. #legend #hellodollyontour #masterteacher #friend
Repost from @norbuck using @RepostRegramApp - I love this picture of my sister Betty Lynn greeting my grandfather, as my brothers greet my grandmother behind them. We used to drive to see my grandparents every summer in South Dakota. This picture was probably 1960 or so. There’s something so spiritual about it.

My lovely friend Inga @thrasherhair posted these photos of one of my wigs before & after for @hellodollybway #hellodollyontour The pretty wigs I want built by the Master @paul_huntley_wigs really take a beating during the show. Actually they look like I feel six days, eight times a week. Inga & I have worked together for nine different shows. Paul Huntley has made all of my wigs since we first worked together for the film “Tender Mercies”. I am a blessed actress with collaborators like these. ❤️ #lifeofawig #toomanyhats 😉

With the gorgeous Ms. Cassie! Thank you, Cassie, for this sweet post. 😍💕🤗 Repost from @peacecenter using @RepostRegramApp - Everybody always asks me about Ms. Betty Lynn Buckley ❤️... What’s she like? How does she like touring? Is she performing tonight?! Can you believe you’re working with her? And honestly all I can ever say is that Betty is a graceful yet POWERFUL force of nature, and it is an honor to share the stage with her every night. I can’t listen to the recordings of “Memory” or “He Plays the Violin” again until the tour is over, because if I do I think I’ll get too star struck to come to work 🤩 • • • #hellodollyontour #hellodolly #bettybuckley #PCBroadway #yeahTHATgreenville #greenvillesc #cats #1776 #sunsetboulevard
