Another Year in the past. It brought life and death and passed quickly, way too quickly. I hope for a better one.
February: Lora’s Birthday
March: The first Spring flowers
August: and more work
As we live our life we experience many people. Some we see each day, some pass by us, some become friends, some we love, some we admire, we have our parents and relatives… the list is big, countless… they all touch us in a way. Michael Jackson died today. I was not his biggest fan nor his biggest listener and admirer. From the list he was in the section of the ones never seen and never cared so much about. Still today I realize that the music he has created has thrilled my heart too. I remember my childhood when we listened to him not understanding the music, not the text, more because the fashion. I had these pirate tape copies of his most popular albums. I listened to him as I grew. I listen to his songs now, actually the last few weeks. That’s what makes me think today. I was not his greatest admirer not his biggest fan… still he has touched my life with his art, with the beauty and the passion in it. There are these people we know, we have listened, seen and heard of. It looks like they will be there forever like the trees and the rivers we pass by each day and suddenly we realize they are as human as me and you and they live a life too. Life which looks different… but the sun and the stars shine for them also and it’s just an illusion that they shine for them more brightly. He was/is a legend, an idol, an icon, a “king” for many… and he was a man NOT a “bad” man I believe.
He was lauded and ridiculed. He broke down barriers and built them around himself. He soared to heights unimaginable with his music, and he made the ignominious front page of gutter tabloids worldwide. For Michael Jackson, the spotlight was always present, and the rest of the world followed.
Now she is part of every us, running around, demanding, undeniably convinced in her wishes and she is a kid, the baby has grown up and is a big joy for us. I still remember the endless counting of the passing days in the beginning. This period lasted like forever..
