Saturday Night Serenade–Looking Back

New years eve celebration background with champagne

It’s been a week, hasn’t it?  You get to the point where, when you see a celebrity trending on social media, you feel like you just don’t want to know any more.  For me, it seems like 2016 has been unusually cruel, especially right here at the end.

This year, we’ve lost so many iconic dreamers, artists, and poets.  Is is just that we’re getting older, is that it?  I don’t know.  But I’m not feeling all that festive this New Year’s Eve.  I mean, the year’s been rough, and we’re staring down the barrel of a world where an ignorant orange troll effectively unravels decades of careful diplomacy, 140 characters at a time.  I don’t know anymore.

But I wanted to remember a small sample of those we’ve lost:

  • David Bowie
  • Alan Rickman
  • Glen Frey
  • Abe Vigoda
  • Harper Lee
  • Garry Shandling
  • Doris Roberts
  • Prince
  • Patty Duke
  • Muhammad Ali
  • Elie Wiesel
  • Garry Marshall
  • Gene Wilder
  • Arnold Palmer
  • Leonard Cohen
  • Leon Russell
  • Florence Henderson
  • John Glenn
  • Alan Thicke
  • George Michael
  • Carrie Fisher
  • Debbie Reynolds

I don’t mean to be a downer, but I think, on a night like tonight, as we, with cautious optimism, welcome in the New Year, we need a little Sweet Baby James.

Here’s wishing you an amazing, joyful, safe, blessed, and prosperous New Year!   ❤

Happy Saturday night!

    None better than sweet baby James! Thank you for the great link. We have lost a lot of very talented and beloved people this year, a great tribute to them.
