This week, I have had the fun of spending time with two of the three local grandchildren. (Oldest was at volleyball camp). I took H. to yoga with me on Wednesday morning. He thought it awesome to go to yoga with his grandmother and thinks me cool because I wear lots of bracelets. A. and and I are working on a birthday project for their Mom’ upcoming special day.
We spent lots of time in the car and I found out pretty quickly that my propinquity for “talk radio” was vetoed! We listened to popular music instead. I had heard “See You Again” before but this time I really listened. It was written by Wiz Khalifa in response to the death of the star Paul Walker as a tribute to Walker in the new Furious 7 film. Charlie Puth was chosen to sing it because he had personal current loss over the death of a friend. The emotion and pain are very clear in his voice.
Loss is a theme that is a personal part of all our lives . . death of a family member or friend, loss of a child, a dream, youth, health and many more. Loss is a part of life for all people everywhere and this international , multicultural theme touches us all.
Thanks H. and A. for touching my heart in such a special way just being with you. Maybe I will listen to more music in the car. . . so much for that snooty thought that the only good music was from the 60s and 70s!
Until I See You Again !

Emotional stuff. My son’s cried at this. I cried at this.
Paul was part of the F&F Family…When he passed, everyone felt it. From actors to people making scripts to people making lunch. When his brother said he would step in to finish the last move.. That image above is CGI. Paul’s Brother with part of Paul’s face digitally placed over his brothers..You can tell his Brother is crying…
So sad.,… 😦 x

Thanks , Shaun for the back story. I just really like the music and lyrics. But it is a poignant story that explains the emotion.
