2014 has not been an easy year for my fellow celebrities.
No, this year already three people (well, there were many others, but to each their own) that I looked upon have passed away.
The one on everybody’s heart and mind today is, off course Robin Williams. There are two movies that I will always carry in my heart: ‘Good morning Vietnam’ and ‘The Dead Poets Society’.
I know, I know, he was mainly a comedian and a family movies actor, but I have, by far, watched more times Good Morning Vietnam, than all the other comedies together.
Another one was one of my favourite writers: Gabriel Garcia Marquez. I liked his books so much I have a few in Spanish, even though my Spanish is basically Portuguese with an accent.
Lastly: Philip Seymour Hoffman. I was so unbelievably sad when I heard about his passing. His movies, his acting, for me they are precious.
What strikes me the most is, every time an actor or musician or writer dies I think: wow, they will not live forever. I mean, I know that, and I know their work will be around for us to see, but people are actually going to pass away. I got to start paying attention to all these new people!!!
Anyway, I have attached pictures of people that I like and have perished this year.
Stay well, stay loved.
