Update about blog

Come on over to my other blog, Alchemy of Clay and Living in Black Mountain NC, where the scenery and my ceramic arts life are combined. I've moved some personal blog posts, (as well as those that are about my ancestors) back here.

Feeling sad

It's not every day..two illustrious people died within days of each other, both in the entertainment industry.  I imagine they have met and have put their feet up someplace, and are looking out at some vistas and relaxing, sharing some stories.  If not that...then I know that their energies will live on through the many wonderful memories they left with us. 

Actress, Oscar Nominee, Tony Award winner and Kennedy Center Award recipient Lauren Bacall passed away at the age of 89 yesterday. Her career spanned five decades of prominent stage and film roles.

And this just after the day that Robin Williams committed suicide.

When Christopher Reeve was in the hospital, awaiting a back surgery that had a fifty/fifty chance of killing him, a man burst into his room. He was wearing surgical scrubs, talking in a Russian accent, and said he was there to give a rectal exam. It was Robin Williams; the two men had been roommates together at Juilliard. Later Reeve said of his life-long friend:

“For the first time since the accident, I laughed. My old friend had helped me know that somehow I was going to be okay.”

That's sort of what Robin Williams did for all of us.  Source:
