Three Wrenching Deaths
Probably I’m not answering this prompt in the way it was intended, but I can’ help myself.
In the space of a week, three people MY AGE, who were excellent artists and beloved, have died.
First, the musician: Davie Bowie, age 69
Then, the American poet, C.D.Wright, aged 67
Then, the marvelous actor, Alan Rickman, age 69.
Never met any of them, but I feel a personal loss in their deaths.
