Some days, you just have to stop and think about how short life really is. Well, we should everyday.
But there are times when reminders come a callin' like a sharp uppercut to the jaw, Capisce?
Like, say, for instance, in the moment that you learned when the teen heartthrob from your youth...the boy you watched religiously on "Beverly Hills 90210" as bored, neglected billionaire teenage Dylan McKay...has suddenly slipped away.
I know it might seem silly to many of you that I actually cried when I read that Luke Perry died.
No, I didn't know him as a person. But he WAS a fellow Buckeye and all. At least, before he headed to California to follow his dream. And he DID figure prominently in my late adolescence/early adulthood.
I mean, who, in my generation, wasn't fascinated with the Hollywood High School bad boy who came between best friends Brenda and Kelly? Or formed part of another triangle between Dylan, Brandon (Brenda's twin brother), and um, Kelly?
Either way, the loss of Perry at age 52 from complications of a massive stroke a few days ago is not only sad for all of us who adored him in 1990...but also a new generation of fans who liked him as Archie's Dad on "Riverdale". Okay fine, I loved his Hallmark and Lifetime movies, too.
I'll miss seeing the boyish grin that shone through the lined but ruggedly handsome face of a mature actor.
And I'll certainly take the opportunity as a reminder that EVERY DAY IS A PRECIOUS GIFT...and that I should be thankful for it with all of its blessings. #LifeIsBeautiful #GodIsGood
Hug your peeps tight, my friends...and maybe say a little prayer for old cutie patootie Dylan McKay.
