An Angelically Stellar Connection: RIP Michael Jackson, RIP Farrah Fawcett

The passing away of Farrah Fawcett, a once huge global star, occured on the same day as that of Michael Jackson, an even bigger cosmic personality. A coincidence or fate? Both had been glowing stars in their particular genre. Both had fought hard against personal destructive demons. Both had experienced more than their fair share of well-publicised traumatic external events. Both had climbed effortlessly to the pinnacle of fame and back. Both had inspired a generation of fans in their unique, inimitable style. A truly angelical and stellar connection in the heavens above?

Jim Morrisson, An American Prayer
Death makes angels of us all
and gives us wings
where we had shoulders
smooth as a raven's
