Roses for my melancholy mood

Recently there has been a spate of bad and sad news about friends and famous people leaving this mortal coil. It has placed me in a rather melancholy mood especially after just hearing about the passing of another dear soul in the UK, then David Bowie and then today Alan Rickman.

In reflecting on the impact that these individuals have had on my journey, whether known or unknown to them, it has made me realize that so many people contribute pieces of themselves to influence the kind of person I’ve become. In reading the outpouring of messages across social media there is the understanding that we are all connected and that our collective memories help us treasure the moments of lives that have made an impact both on a global scale or those that have touched us personally.

The human body has its limitations but the human spirit is a boundless thing of beauty.

I am thankful to all those who have contributed to mine.
