Lemmy, Bowie, Rickman, and now Prince.
Four incredible folk who brought such happiness to so many. Outpouring of sadness and memories have taken over my news feed and news outlets.
Their loss is felt, but their loss is also a reminder to take a look around at all the incredible folk you have on your doorstep. Of how short life is.
So I’m doing a terrible job of keeping this blog updated… once again.
Do you ever find that you sometimes don’t want to share your thoughts? That you just want to hide away? Or that you have no thoughts to share? That you draw a blank? Or there are so many thoughts you don’t know which to begin with?
I guess I find it easier to write when I need a way to escape, for relief. But when life is good, I forget to record it as I’m carried away – carried away by living so much that I’m unable to sit still and write down anything worth reading!
I guess it’s something I need to overcome… distraction, patience, focus. To find the words to record those joyous moments as well as those horrible ones.
As Evelyn Waugh once said:
The human mind is inspired enough when it comes to inventing horrors; it is when it tries to invent a Heaven that it shows itself cloddish.
“The great thing is, once we let go of being everything, we have the opportunity to be gloriously ourselves.”
