...is dead. I'm still in shock. It is amazing--he's touched so many people in so many ways... Yes yes, and (please excuse me all you Paul-lovers ) he and John were my favourites--their lyrics make you think, which Ringo's certainly do not, and neither do Paul's. (Usually. I do happen to like Flaming Pie, for especially Song We Were Singing, because it captures my friends' and my relationship....)
I mean, (back on topic), the lyrics made me think... I love George's music. And I don't know what to say now, because I am *so* not into it.
I woke up this morning, and on the radio all they were playing was George. I half-heard the explanation, but I didn't hear the "dead" part--I feared it, but I didn't hear it. So I wasn't sure that first time. All day it didn't seem true--it still doesn't.
I didn't hear it yesterday, either. I don't know why; perhaps I block myself out from the world or something.... When I don't have to know, I don't try to know. Any music I listen to is CDs, and any TV I see is commercial....
Really, right now I am at a loss for words. Totally and completely.
And I feel sorta bad about taking my Personal Space away, because it is only partly because of George. It needs a remodel, and this was just an excuse .... It isn't an excuse in my heart, but it is at the same time... I don't know. It's too hard to explain what I am thinking about.
And I get the feeling this is going to be a long journal (journey?), and I also get the feeling that it hasn't said very much. It also doesn't convey my original horrific reaction to this.... Too much has gone on lately. I'm afraid I'm going to get jaded. *sigh*
Still at a loss for words...
I can borrow a "so long and thanks for all the fish" quote, or I can use one of George's songs... Or John's... Or Paul's... Or Ringo's... Or them all together... But I think I'll just leave you all with a candle burning:
