Farewell Farrah. Sorry to see you go. I hope your passing was peaceful and that you were surrounded by those you love.
Michael Jackson? I am shocked and so very sad about this unexpected news. How many blog posts about Michael Jackson will there be over the next week? Countless, I’m sure. It’s strong testimony to the effect that Michael had on people the world over. I feel compelled to write down my thoughts and memories of Michael.
Much like his ever changing face there were many Michaels over the years. In a sad way it seemed as if he was looking for himself with each drastic change in his appearance. Hoping to recognize himself in the mirror. Never happy with what he saw.
Michael and his brothers were responsible for teaching me all about the pure, unadulterated joy a person could feel just from listening to music. Before them I had listened to my parents music, Roy Orbison, Ricky Nelson and Marlene Dietrich (a head scratcher, I know.) All good, but even at my young age I knew that I needed more. I needed something I could dance to. Cue music…………
