As of this writing, there has been quite a bit of high profile “celebrities” passing on. Dying, that is.
Dave Bowie. Alan Rickman. Glenn Frey. Scott Weiland. Meadowlark Lemon.
I haven’t been sad about all this. Quite the opposite. Gracious for their inspiration really. Brilliant lights who help us see.
I’ll leave this here from Alan Watts about the “disease” of dying. The disease seems to be in our own heads.
There’s also a nice benefit of realization about children growing up and our resistance to that.
