The District: Chapter 4

“There is a Passion natural to the Mind of man, especially a free Man, which renders him impatient of Restraint.”- George Mason, Letter to the Committee of Merchants in London, June 6, 1766.

The days seemed to grow together, spanning out in the long doldrums of August. Lexa liked this time of year because of just that reason, the length of the days and the taste of the sunshine in the hazy humid heat. She liked seven pm games that she watched in front of the store with Bellamy and her friends from various places that all seemed to congregate there. She liked the way the day weighed heavy and stiff on her body when she walked on the sweating sidewalks.

When she was a kid, Lexa loved August because it was historically when her entire family was together. It was when her grandfather took her to games almost every day, and she was Nolan Ryan when he was a Met, and she pitched strikes to every kid that came around to play in the streets until it was too dark to see the ball. August was when she sat in the backyard with her friends and her mother cooked for them all night. It was the last sweet days before school started, when she rode the subway and spent the day in Central Park, when she walked the bridges, spit off of buildings, spent hours in the museums with little attempts to hurry home. August was rooftops and a city that was on fire with the ripples of heat escaping for the day.

After she moved to DC, Lexa spent August in a blur. It was a busy time for her with work, and when she wasn’t working, she was finding new rooftops and parks.

HAPPY 105TH BIRTHDAY, LUCILLE BALL! | AUGUST 6TH, 1911 - APRIL 26TH, 1989

“My Mom spent a lot of time with Lucie and me. She attended school plays and Little League games, helped me with my homework, and made an effort to get to know my friends. She took us to Disneyland and followed us around with a home movie camera. She even tape recorded interviews with us. Mom saved everything from our childhood and kept boxes of boxes of moments, including baby shoes, our drawings, and all the gifts her fans sent when I was born” -Desi Arnaz Jr.

Rest In Peace Lucille Désirée Ball // August 6, 1911 - April 26, 1989 

“I was driving to work on the 405 freeway in Los Angeles during rush hour. Naturally, I had the radio on for company. When the disc jockey announced that Lucy had died, I slowed down and immediately began to cry. After about a minute, I realized that I had stopped completely on a very busy highway. I immediately looked around and saw that every car around me in both directions was stopped, and all of the passengers were shedding tears. We all sort of looked at one another, shared the moment, took a deep breath, and began to drive again.” -The Lucy Book

“It may be that during business hours God and the angels only sit around watching six-part documentaries and Bill Moyers. But back in the “family quarters” I bet they switch to I Love Lucy. And that’s how I know there is laughter in heaven. Because a God who would have created her would never let her laughter be far from home.” - Diane Sawyer delivering Lucille Ball’s eulogy

Lucille Désirée Ball ♥
(August 6, 1911 - April 26, 1989)

“I’m a Leo. I was born on a Sunday, August 6, 1911. Unfortunately, everybody knows my birth date because I told the truth when I first came Hollywood.           I’m known among comediennes as a stunt girl who will do anything. Red Skelton flatters me by saying I have the courage of a tiger. I don’t think it’s a matter of bravery; it’s just doing what comes naturally. I do know that if an actress has the slightest aversion to pie in the face or pratfalls, the camera will pick it up instantly. The audience won’t laugh; they’ll suffer in sympathy. Perhaps my willingness to be knocked off a twenty-foot pedestal or shot down a steamship funnel goes back to my earliest, happiest days with father. I knew he was going to catch me; I wasn’t going to get hurt.”

“I cured myself of shyness when it finally occurred to me that people didn’t think about me half as much as I gave them credit for. The truth was, nobody gave a damn. Like most teenagers, I was far too self-centered. When I stopped being prisoner to what I worried was others’ opinions of me, I became more confident and free.”

Happy Birthday, Lucille Ball (August 6th 1911)

“She told me she dreamt she had died. And she came back as a ghost on Hollywood Boulevard. She’s walking along as a ghost, and no one remembers her. When she died, that was the first thing I thought of, because you never saw such an outpouring of love, almost obsession. I thought, she would be so proud.”
- Candy Moore

Happy Birthday Lucille Desiree Ball | August 6, 1911 - April 26, 1989

“She is one of the few individuals in history to be on a solely first name basis with the world: Marilyn, Elvis, Lucy. She was a national treasure. She remains a world icon, recognizable from Tallahassee to Timbuktu from Paduach to Peru. No other performer in any medium of either sex has inspired the devotion and generated the international love and appreciation that she has. Said one admirer: “Lucy…is a common denominator for nations, continents, and hemispheres, doing in entertainment what others have not accomplished in professional diplomacy.“ - Women Pioneers in Television

"The sun never sets on Lucille Ball. All over this worried world tonight, nations of untold millions are watching reruns they also watched the first time around. Joy requires no translation. God wanted the world to laugh, and he invented you. Many were called, but you were chosen. All of the funny hats, the baggy pants, the mustaches and the wigs, and the pratfalls and and the blacked out teeth - they didn’t fool us one minute. We saw through all the disguises, and what we found inside is more than what we deserve.” - Sammy Davis, Jr.

“She’s given the world so much darn enjoyment, Lucille Ball is the best loved star in show business.” - Ed Sullivan

“One of the greatest gifts to mankind is laughter, and one of the greatest gifts to laughter is Lucille Ball. God has her now, but thanks to television, we’ll have her forever.” - Bob Hope
