weird week of loss and growth

by Richard E. Aaron (this was my favorite michael)

It's the week America lost some strange yet powerful icons as well as other friends, while it rained and rained. Read this very touching post about things left behind by P, written earlier this week.
Have a good, very much in the moment weekend.

Yesterday was definitely a weird day for pop culture and people of my generation.

I've spoken to younger friends, and they don't get it.

They've barely heard of Farrah, and only know Jacko the Wacko, not what Micheal was before.....all that.

Wishing you a lovely week-end!

It's sad, but he will be remembered and danced to...
I love that pic of him with an afro!

Spent an embarrassing amount of time last night watching MJ videos and crying. He was so incredible in the 70s and 80s - poetry in motion. What an incredible performer. It's was so sad to watch him deteriorate into a husk of a person.
