#WednesdayWisdom: And he was glorious.

Standard

CW: suicide.

Were these prompts always here? Did I just not notice them?

Today was “Have you ever performed on stage or given a speech.” And I have to wonder…is there anyone who hasn’t done either of those things? Or at least one of them?

Even back in the recesses of youth?

And now the very thing meant to steer the conversation has derailed it. Or maybe not. I guess we’ll have to see how this all goes.

Today is one of those days that is gray inside and outside, with a rain that is neither pretty nor dramatic, but only there.

My thoughts are consumed right now with the death of Twitch–real name Stephen Bos– as I remember his incredible talent, and remember watching the sparks fly between him and his future wife, Allison Hoker on So You Think You Can Dance. And dance they could.

Have you ever performed on stage?

Twitch’s cause of death, they say, was suicide. And my heart hurts for his family, my heart hurts for him, for whatever was so overwhelming inside of him he couldn’t survive it.

Was all his life a stage?

I wish comfort to his family who will now have to learn a different way to live. We are sad but they are devastated.

Have you ever performed on stage?

Twitch did. And he was glorious.
