#Haiku – 007, The Gentleman


 “I’ve not planned my funeral. I’m not the Queen. A procession through the streets of Stockwell would be nice, I suppose. But when I go, I’d just like everyone to say: ‘He lived longer than anyone I knew.'”  – Sir Roger Moore 1927 -2017

Suave and quick witted

Continued Bond’s legacy

Chris Cornell 1964 – 2017

I was shocked to hear about the sudden death of Chris Cornell. When grunge rock took over the music scene in the 90s, Soundgarden emerged as one of my favorite bands from that era. Chris had such a powerful voice and style. He was part of Temple of The Dog, a band put together as a tribute to Adrian Wood, former lead singer of Mother Love Bone.

Chris also was a member of Audioslave, which had members of Rage Against The Machine.  Prayers for his family and fellow band members.


Death is imminent

If we have today

Then we should live

With every fiber of our being

We should live
