A sad week in celebrity news. First, news of Farrah Fawcett's death, then Michael Jackson.
May they rest in peace.
Such shocking news, but ever a gentle reminder of how lucky we are, to be alive, to have loved ones in our lives. I called my sister after news broke of Michael's death, and we reminisced about how entertwined our memories of childhood were with his early solo pop albums. I remember seeing posters for Thriller and Bad in the record store down the block. She remembers a lady doing a really awful moonwalk down the street carrying a Michael Jackson lunchbox.
We will all remember that single glove.
I'm inspired to create my life's version of Off the Wall, a defining moment in music history. If there was ever a time to do those things I promised to do; to say those things I promised to say, this is IT. No more excuses. Life is too short for ordinary things.
Off to Washington, DC for the weekend with the Mr. so just a single link from the talented illustrator Danny Roberts, who just released his tribute drawing of the King of Pop (shown above). I was in the middle of compiling a Twitter-view for this week, but I have decided to postpone that as well until the following week.
Until Monday... be well.
