 Mum always awoke early. When she was working as an actress she thought: Sooner or later they will realize their mistake and will send me home. To get rid of that fear, she would get upbefore “they” did,to go over her lines. In order to look perfect on the set, fresh,without a singlenegative thought that might ruffle her smile, she had to arise between four and five in the morning and gather her strength.
Mum, like any wise family doctor, believed in the virtues of a good breakfast. She never skipped it. She knew how to be persuasive and from the time I was a little boy she would cut slices of buttered bread-she called them “fingers”-for dipping in soft-boiled eggs. However, what left an impression about her breakfast went beyond those toasted rectangles of bread.
During the last years of her life, this morning interlude was also a time for confidences. If my brother and I were at her Swiss home, breakfast would be in the kitchen's office. She would come downstairs in her robe, and while having a cake and a cup of coffee, almost unconsciously,small talk would turn into a confession (忏悔).One day she uneasily told me about the painfulcircumstances of her separation from my father. I learned to know her better at the breakfasttable.
But it was not always a time for discussion. Returning from a trip, or on a Sunday,she would honor the day of rest with a small luxury, something unusual for her:breakfast in bed. It was like a prize she awarded herself, and it was enjoyed all the more if the tray were filled with tidbits, such as homemade cake or cherry jam, along with toast, coffee, milk, butter, a small from the garden in a tiny vase, and on the side of her tray the International Herald Tribune .
