Life is here. Life is gone

How fragile Life is!...And in consequence, how fragile we are!

Today I feel very bad at the death of Farrah Fawcett and Michael Jackson. Hers I expected and it was heartbreaking to see her fighting until the last day -but Michael's sudden death has stunned me. Poor man! I don't think he ever had a chance to be a real child. He never was truly happy --and somehow his talent, and the strange 'persona' he had invented, was the instrument of his own death. Very sad!

This proves one more time that one moment Life is here --and gone the next. The mysteries of death and a world beyond come over to confront us -- and questions remain unanswered.

This week we have seen icons disappear --and this 'brands' our own lives. Keeping 'bed rest' due to my herniated disk and all the subsequent pain, makes me very sad and melancholic, as you can see. And this news don't help at all!
