It's so hard for me to believe that it has officially been a year since the death of Michael Jackson. It's just something that is very difficult for me to wrap my head around, and I don't think i'll ever fully grasp his death. I woke up this morning to hear the faint sounds of "Billie Jean" from the terrace across from mine. I have superb hearing lol. Then my next door neighbors were playing "Smooth criminal" and "You rock my world".
I was jamming right along with them too! Ever since I was a baby maybe even before I could talk I was humming Mj tunes. He along with my other Idols, (Jimi Hendrix,Jim Morrison,Prince,Stevie Wonder,John Lennon,Janis Joplin, Janet Jackson,Stan Lee,Frank Sinatra, Paul Newman, Clint Eastwood, Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, Gwen Stefani,Pharrell Williams, Timbaland,Madonna,and Diana Ross)
hold such specials places in my heart. Mj, in every sense of the word "literal" literally re-defined music and theatrics as we know it. He constructed an entire new culture of music and video production. On another scale he contributed many trends in fashion and accesories to the fashion universe.
More than anything he has truly touched millions of lives, whether you got to go to one of his concerts or sat home broke with your friends watching it, dreaming of getting to touch his hand. His music was one of the main inspirations and continues to be throughout my life. He is just magical to watch and brings out a certain child-like quality in all those that are caught in his gaze;if even for a moment.
From now until forever his music and ever expanding legacy will grow and refine with age and inspire millions everywhere...
MJ, I wish you knew how much you have touched my life and my heart...
Peace and love everyone.
