It is 36 years ago to the day Kevin and I got engaged. Time has flown by!
Tonight we watched ‘Freedom’ the George Michael documentary, and I feel quite sad about such a talented man who appeared to have enjoyed only fleeting glimpses of happiness in his personal life.
A voice of such depth, and soulfulness that could evoke tears of joy and sadness in equal measure.
So many of his songs have a place in my journey in life from the early eighties onwards. His premature death almost 10 months ago, still feels unreal, but his music, as I listen to it now, lives on.
One of my favourites was A Different Corner, underrated in my opinion and Chris Martin sang it earlier this year and it closed the documentary. A poignant moment for me.
I felt like crying, but after a few philosophical words with Joe, I have overcome that and appreciate that I have what I have.
Good night xxx
