in memoriam - michael jackson

Today seems shrouded in an air of melancholy.

The clouds hold an ominous threat. Thunder rolls between lightning flashes and rain and hail are pouring from the sky.

If I was a fan of cliche I would say that even the elements are in mourning today, as they, along with the rest of the world watch Michael Jackson being laid to rest. It would be apt I think, a fitting tribute to the King of Pop.

I feel, along with most 80s babies, that a piece of my childhood is dead. My tears are for a global icon of childhood, and for the world's great loss.
