We are getting to the HEART of Michael Jackson season with the 3rd anniversary of his death upon us on Monday.
As usual here in New York City, there are a lot of events planned, from a vigil at the Apollo Theatre, to DJ Spinna's annual Forever Michael dance party, to the World Cry event, to even a Question and Answer session with the incomparable Siedah Garrett. This year, the only event that I will personally be spearheading is a reflection dinner on the 25th. Its personally my preference to mourn the loss of Michael as a human being, ** Not that I'm knocking any other events (because I'll probably be stopping by several) but, I try and celebrate Michael every other day of the year. For many huge fans, June 25th changed EVERYTHING.
For me, it changed so so much. I lost significant weight, that I wasn't ever able to gain back (which is a good thing I guess) and I became overly-sensitive and more empathetic to others around me. I started Legacy of Love, which now boasts over 120 members and is one of the MJ largest fan clubs in the Tri State. I met so many new friends and rekindled relationships with old ones.
I haven't been sad about Michael for a long time but, my emotions have been kind of running high about life changing in general... but that's another topic for another day. I feel like this weekend will be huge for me, for the fans, for Michael's legacy. Hopefully I can get back to updating this blog more and sharing more about myself and my journeys in this life (in photos) very soon.
Now... what to wear?!?
With Love & Until Next Time...
