What a day to be blogging. I went to bed inspired to write today – to get back into my groove. I had no knowledge of anything that happened when I closed my eyes last night. And then, I wake up to the news and there were two huge stories glaring at me.
And I realise now that it’s the day after the Saturday that I think most people would like to just go away.
George Zimmerman is free after taking the life of an unarmed 17-old kid he racially profiled. He’s free – at that moment. We’ll see what happens.
All I’ve heard is that George Zimmerman had the right to stand his ground. What about Trayvon Martin? What about his RIGHT to stand his ground when he was being followed by someone that he didn’t know, at night – who was five times his size – what about Trayvon’s RIGHT TO STAND HIS GROUND?
That’s all I need to know to UNDERSTAND. I’ve nothing more to say about it.
That’s all I’m saying.
And waking up to the news about Cory Monteith passing. For people who don’t watch #GLEE – they, well – wouldn’t understand just how much each and every character on the show becomes a part of your life. I’ve been told by friends all day, “You didn’t even know him.” And I’ve been like, “Who didn’t know him?”
Do you really need to know someone face-to-face to know them and what they mean to you? We all struggle with demons – they’re intrinsically different for each of us and my hope is that Cory’s passing has nothing to do with the demons that have haunted him for the past year. His life was back on track and with Lea Michele by his side – you just knew things could only become better and brighter.
For those of you who keep up with me – and thanks, by the way to those of you, for emailing and calling to check up on me – I’ve been going much better as of late.
I’ve been going to therapy and that is seemingly helping me deal with my losses of the past year. I can say that I am happier now than I’ve been in a bit.
Of course, TNT must receive some credit … all of my summer shows are BACK! Major Crimes, Rizzoli & Isles, Falling Skies, Perception and Franklin & Bash!
One of my friends said that Sharon Raydor (Major Crimes) had become more likeable and I simply pointed out that the character hadn’t really changed — she’s still the same as she was in The Closer, but Rusty has had an impact on her. 🙂
I’ve been very busy with work as of late – that’s kept me focused and out of ‘trouble’! 🙂 So, I’m just enjoying my weekend and thinking about how fortunate I am … life is too short to not pursue your dreams and tell the people you love just how much you love them.
Here’s to what’s left of the weekend …
