Much love and light here. i couldn’t come to terms with just posting a picture. she shared her light with us. those who tuned in felt the power of her voice. -
my earliest memory of her was in the movie ‘the blue brothers’. that movie is amazing and features the likes of ray charles, james brown, cab calloway and more. though they are no longer with us, they left something for us to enjoy. so, thank you.
the immediate response is to feel sad but i can’t be any longer. i didn’t know her. i knew her through her talent and that will never go away. grateful that we have the capability to bottle that talent up through recordings. her essence is still here.
i can’t tell you the intricacies of her life but i can tell you how her voice makes me feel.
with that, i realized that expressing my love and appreciation for another soul can start at anytime. not when i “get there” or when it’s the right time, or when the leave this world. ‘now’ is the right time.
why wait for anyone to give permission to do so? her passing is a reminder to live life fully. leave your positive mark out there. someone needs it, you need it, and the world is a better place because of it. -
thank you aretha for being among those who inspire me. listening to to you ignites my dreams and aspirations. 🙏💋
