Yes, sad news indeed!

Georgios Kyriacos Panayiotou (25 June 1963 – 25 December 2016)

George Michael as we knew him — and loved him — now we mourn him.

We don’t know what goes on in the “real” lives of our beloved celebrities. We assume everything is peaches and cream. And why wouldn’t it be? They appear to have everything: fame, fortune, fabulousness, adoring fans, media all up in their faces, okay, maybe that wouldn’t be so great, as we’ve seen time and time again. But that’s just the price they gotta pay, isn’t it?

Be careful what you ask for.

Big dreams of big money and big notoriety. Live big — die big.

Fame really seems to be a tough thing to handle. So much pressure. Gotta be perfect. Gotta be in the right places at the right times. Gotta be wearing the latest and greatest clothes. Gotta be the perfect weight. Gotta have the perfect body — male or female — the world expects perfection.

The dream gets cloudy. Life gets murky.

The fall from grace is devastating. But we sure want to know all about it. All the details — the down and the dirty. This helps us feel better about ourselves and our pathetic little lives. Whew — good thing I never accomplished all my dreams — look what could have happened!

Good thing I played it safe. Good thing I kept my light under a bushel. Good thing I didn’t ask for too much. Good thing I’m just a regular Joe or Joanna.

Live big — die big.

Live small — die small.

Which seems easier? Which seems better? Which is YOU?

Just LIVE — full out — all the way — for as long as you can.

No death is “accidental” “coincidental” — no time is cut short. It is as it was intended be. George Michael shared his gift, talent, heart and soul with us.

What more could we possibly ask for?

Here’s his last interview …


We all gotta have faith — IN OURSELVES — and let others live their lives.
