Day 21 – Thursday, November 19, 2009
I went to see Michael Jackson’s “This Is It” with a dear friend. I highly recommend it to any musicians, dancers and performers because it is basically a great rehearsal film. Creatively, he was simply the best at what he does. There is no question in my mind about it. His personal life may have been fraught with problems, much of which was brought upon him by his fame starting at an early age. It’s clear to me that the flip side of extreme fame is a prison-like loneliness – unless one can find a group of peers who can empathize and can be with you without judgment, good or bad. Life is interesting.
