    This is particularly distressing to me since I have known far too many people that have passed on at that particular age
    BNeing reported within days for George Michael's demise, 2016 is a particularly deadly Christmas season.

    There's a whole generation of Actors/ Musicians getting to that age now, We will lose many greats in the coming years.

    For me, the death that made a real impact to me this year was the death of Richard Adams. He was the author of my most beloved book ~ Watership Down. Richard died on Christmas eve.

    I've lost count how many times I've read this book and my copy is falling to bits now but it is still one of my most prized possessions.

    Men will never rest till they've spoiled the earth and destroyed the animals.
    ~ Watership Down. My fave line from the book.

    "My heart has joined the Thousand for my friend stopped running today." ~ A relevant quote from Watership Down.

    And no, for those that haven't read it, this book is not about fluffy bunnies and all that. It book is pretty brutal and sad.



    When you wake up..
    I'll be a story in your head,
    But that's ok.
    We are all stories in the end.

    Just make it a good one eh?
    Because it was, you know.
    It was the best.
