Whitney Houston and me

I like Whitney's music, so I clicked the eulogy on the landing page. That led to other actors who've died in the last year - including Mr Cunningham and Peter Falk, whom I didn't know had gone.

Yes; we are all shocked at the death of Whitney Houston but yesterday I found out a guy I used to date and lived next door to me in my old neighborhood thirty years ago

I really like that sentiment.

I do feel sad that Whitney's life ended so soon and that it was so troubled.

Mark,

I wish I could give it a simple definition, like living in joy or being in the present moment. (Although I respect Tolle) But frankly, although I've achieved more in my lifetime than 95% of the rest of the world, I count in hard numbers: Influence.

well lets face the harsh reality.. Do you want to find a cure for cancer?? Do you want to go to the moon and be an astronaut?Do you want to make millions?? Do you want to write a book??

Do you want to open an orphanage?
