R.I.P ... and thanks

When Bea Arthur died last week, I thought about posting. She was brilliant and beautiful and an irreplaceable talent. I also knew that the world would grieve her and posts upon posts would be written. Deservedly so. And so they were.

Today, the world has lost another brilliant and beautiful and irreplaceable talent only I doubt posts upon posts upon posts will be written, even though they are deserved as well.

Rest well, Ernie Barnes. The world just became less colorful, less interesting and less vibrant. Thank goodness your work still survives. Thank you for it.

Those are Pobble Thoughts. That and a buck fifty will get you coffee ~ and an amazing legacy.

I'd never heard of Ernie Barnes, but that just demonstrates why your post is needed. We're all gonna die, but if you leave something valuable behind like Ernie Barnes or Bea Arthur, you're doing all right.

I recognized the art, but didn't know the artist - very sad. It was too bad about Bea too as I used to watch 'Golden Girls' with my brother growing up which we now admit was a bit of an odd thing to do. Anyway, these things tend to come in waves and I hope it is over for now.

I whole-heartedly agree with CrackerLilo. Resquiat in pacem, Ernie.
