Crazy things going on.

So some of you probably know that on January 10th David Bowie died of cancer at 69. When I heard, I broke down into tears. He was my favorite artist. I loved his movies his songs, everything. He was a great artist that will be missed. But today I found out that Alan Rickman (most people know home as Shape from Harry potter) died from cancer at 69 as well. Only 4 days later. I just thought it was kind of strange. I had a thought that a lot of people that are sick want to make it to new years with their family and friends. I thought maybe after they made it to new years they were finally able to let go. Its a sad thing but they are probably in a lot less pain now. I really don't know what this post is about, its more just me typing my thoughts I guess.

I like David Bowie also, and he's not much older than I am. I loved the movie Labyrinth! At first I didn't recognize who Alan Rickman was until they mentioned Robin Hood. I've never seen a Harry Potter movie, thinking it's more for my grandchild's generation. Lol. Your reaction to David Bowie is exactly what my sister and I did (on vacation) when they announced on the news that Elvis Presley had died. I lost a very good friend the next week in a car wreck. I think that week was when I realized that life wasn't all about fun. Hugs...πŸ˜·πŸ™πŸŒΌπŸ’•

Good idea Jenna..I understand ..its always sad to hear of people you admire passing it kind of ties us into our humanity. Let's me remember that at so!e point our fight will be over.. However, that does not mean to stop fighting . and we are all connected. I'm happy u are able to express your thoughts in such an awesome open way....

I loved them both!! David Bowie is amazing still and always will be yet my kids think right now that lyambrith is so old. I think it's more they are on more pain. They left it all on the field and had nothing left.

Jenna, they were both truly gifted at their craft. I liked Bowie and I saw most of the Harry Potter movies. He was also in Die Hard with Bruce Willis. I understand what you are feeling. It really does make you think if you're own journey and mortality. You, my dear, are a very important part of all of us and we ARE all connected. There will come a day when we will no longer be in pain and will be with our Heavenly Father where we will have nothing but peace and joy. Right now we are all here for whatever reason we were put here and as for me, I have found renewed purpose in my own life in helping and loving my peeps. I really do feel it's a wonderful thing that you are able to express yourself in such an awesome way. Sending {{Hugs}} your way.. πŸ’•πŸ™πŸ»πŸŒ»

I was in shock when I found out about Alan Rickman, I found out by Facebook on my sisters status, I loved the Harry Potter movies and I I love watching Die Hard with the hubby, you know I didn't even recognize him from Die Hard to Harry Potter! He was a very gifted actor ALWAYS! it is sad that he had passed away but like my Aunt he is on no more pain! Sometimes just writing down our thoughts help.

I too was in shock when I found out David Bowie died. I feel like I lost my best friend. In times of sorrow or happiness he was my go to for inspiration. His music and his poetic soul were genius. His new album is beyond words. I am heartbroken,. Heaven must sound wonderful now.
