How sad

I can’t believe Heath Ledger died today.

And I really, really hope it wasn’t suicide, as is rumored. I also hope it wasn’t drugs.

    I know! My son told me the minute I walked through the door, and I thought ‘yeah, right. This is something to do with the Joker.” I’m stunned. :???:

    I know. I found out when I clicked on internet at work to give a client a revised quote (insurance, bleh). The office home page is and there it was, in the breaking news line. I totally lost all train of thought and had to put the client on hold and grasp it. I’m still not sure it’s completely sunk in.

    Sadly, the latest news is talking about OTC sleeping pills found near him–which would totally be so sad if true.
    I’ve got a ton of thoughts going through my head–about River Phoenix’s early death, about Owen Wilson’s attempt. About the pressure on these celebrities and how fragile they still are–as we all can be as humans. Tragedy always makes me look at things a little differently, at least for a little while.

    I’ve decided I’m going to believe prescription sleep aids + pneumonia = tragic accident and avoid all the news about it now. Sure, it was only a rumor about the pneumonia, but I’m going with it.
