I never thought George Michael would be dead this year.
Nor General Organa.
Or her mother.
Let alone all the others we’ve lost this year. Bowie. Prince.
They say that losing all your favourites is a sign that you’re getting older. Maybe I am.
But what happens when some of those that you’ve lost were before their time?
And then what age is too young? I consider anything under 70 young.
Because that’s just the way it is. A full life is someone dying in their 80’s. Or at least late 70’s.
So with that in mind, when a friend posted this link to a tribute to Carrie Fisher as Leia Organa I had to share. Because thinking about her and Debbie Reynolds still tears me up. Add in George Michael and I turn into a sobbing mess.
So in light of that, here’s something that was wonderfully written and imagined.
Vale you bright souls.
I’m dancing with the freaks too Georgie… We’ll miss you on the dancefloor at Mardi Gras…
