I've Had A Bit Of A Revelation



Warning: Some May Consider This Post To Have Too Much Personal Information. Scoffers Look Away!
I sat down to do some blog surfing and ran across this video. It is a Swedish dance group's tribute to Michael Jackson. (Found here) Its just fantastic! Here's the funny part. As soon as the dancing began, I broke down into tears and could barely see the monitor through my fogged up glasses! So, what I think is that I have been in mourning. I don't think its a coincidence that since Michael Jackson's passing, I haven't had two creative thoughts to rub together!
I feel very silly admitting this. I mean I sound more like a 13 year old than a 33 year old. But its the truth. When someone as inspiring and magical as Michael passes away, its like the world becomes a little grayer. Some of you are probably wondering why a Texas girl who loves interior design would take this so hard. I mean I don't sing, dance, or anything along those lines. But it was his Passion! His insane talent and his determination to live in his own way. No matter what others thought. That is what inspired me as a little girl. To be completely unique without apologies.
Okay, if anyone is still reading, thanks for indulging me and my crazy feelings. I'm not sure what to do about all this, maybe I just need some time before color returns to my imagination.

awww, you're sweet Carolina! I think it's sad about Michael too. Following your heart and passion such as Michael did is inspiration to us all!

My first thoughts when I saw this video were, "Wow, wouldn't Michael love this?" I admit to being teary, too. I think it's just starting to sink in now that all the media frenzy is over.

I'm glad I found your blog today. Lots of inspiration.

Thank you so much for your comments on Michael Jackson. I read both of your posts and was in tears. I'm in tears now trying to type this. The media has never really been kind to MJ. But to read comments like yours and others, is so refreshing and nice to see. Thank you again : )

Wow! I didn't know I was in mourning either until I too had tears down my cheeks when they all started dancing. He did have amazing talent, creativity and passion. We just saw 'this is it" at the Cinerama Dome. From a fellow architect/ designer, seeing it there was double "WOW" . Check out my post on it here.
