Dead Michael Jackson

"Oh, I feel so old, everyone is dying. What should I do?"

It's a valid question, dear reader, and you have come to the right place.

The answer is, revel in it. Think of the alternative - you could die young, while all of your heroes and icons are still vibrantly alive. Not that there is anything wrong with that, but it is not the hand you are playing.

As all of those you know die, the past congeals and eventually sets, and the present becomes less immediate, and less relevant. You start to realize that you are a part of the past, too. Please don't freak out while this is happening.

Enjoy all those dead people, you'll be joining them soon enough. But enjoy them now. And enjoy the gradual detachment from the new world that the new people are creating, it can be very liberating to not care quite so much anymore, and to be ready to just float downstream.

Keep those cards and letters flowing in!
