So three more stars grace the hereafter over this short Christmas break. Zsa Zsa Gabor who’s been around since always, George Michael whom everybody knows and who’s music is engraved on everybody’s brain at some point. Liz Smith…who’s appearances in The Royle Family, The Vicar Of Dibley and Bottom has kept us giggling over the last 25 years. And now Carrie Fisher, just 60 years old and most famous for Princess Leia in the Star Wars franchise.
The Grim Reaper keeps harvesting all my childhood heroes and theyre only going to increase in rate as we grow older, but then this is the circle of life. It can come at any age for any reason. We should enjoy our lives and loved ones with precious grace so that we are remembered fondly when we have no more presence.
Be awesome to each other for a better future. Sometimes all it can take is you to make the first move even if you don’t feel you should…and then the world becomes a better place. Simply stay away from those who antagonize you for a clearer and more enjoyable life. Civility can be all.
