Still Speechless…

Wordless Wednesday…

* SIGH *
It never ends…it never ends. I’m heartbroken, angry, and speechless over the senseless, unjustified murder of Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. I don’t know what to say, so it’s best that I say nothing…at least, for now.

I’m going to do some gaming and thinking for a while. In the meantime, here are a few screen-shots from back when I began playing this online addiction, The Elder Scrolls Online. All but the last are from March – April of 2014. More of my thoughts later…for those followers who choose to stick around, that is!

R.I.P., Bobbi Kristina…

Bobbi Kristina Brown: 4 March 1993 Р26 July 2015

It’s a shame…I knew that it was an eventuality, but my heart still goes out to this young girl. Bobbi Kristina Brown, daughter of the late singer and actress Whitney Houston and singer Bobby Brown, passed away yesterday at the age of 22 after being in a comatose state. From the Huffington Post:

Bobbi Kristina Brown, the daughter of Bobby Brown and the late Whitney Houston, died Sunday, according to Entertainment Tonight. She was 22 years old.

Brown was hospitalized on Jan. 31 after she was found unresponsive by her boyfriend Nick Gordon and her friend, Max Lomas, in a bathtub at the couple’s home in Roswell, Georgia.

Multiple outlets reported that Brown had been placed in a medically induced coma and was breathing with the help of a ventilator. Brown was then transported to Emory University Hospital’s neurological department in Atlanta on Feb. 5, before being transferred again in March to Dekalb Medical’s rehab facility in Atlanta.

Things were looking more hopeful for the family in April, when a lawyer for Brown’s father told the press in a statement that the 22-year-old had “opened her eyes,” and went on to say “there has been improvement” in her condition.

However, on June 24, Brown’s aunt Pat Houston announced that Brown’s “condition has continued to deteriorate” and Brown was moved to hospice care. Additionally, the statement went on to say that the Houston family thanks “everyone for their support and prayers. [Bobbi Kristina] is in God’s hands now.”

Authorities are still investigating the circumstances that led the then-21-year-old to become unresponsive.

Brown was the only child of Houston, who died on Feb. 11, 2012, and one of singer Bobby Brown’s six children.”

Poor Bobbi…it seems that her own days were numbered when her mother died of an overdose on 11 February 2012. Her father apparently couldn’t spare time for her, before or after her mother’s death. Sad to grow up in a seemingly privileged home – yet having to witness, and live with, the dysfunctions of drug abuse and physical violence. I never watched the reality show about her father; it saddened me when Whitney was obviously involved with drugs, yet denied it to the world when questioned about it. One can’t get help if they deny that they have a problem. Whatever issues Bobbi Kristina was dealing with, it seems that she ignored and avoided them…to her detriment, unfortunately. I don’t know much about her own husband, so I can’t say anything good or bad about him; he’s an unknown entity, to me. If there is suspicion around her death, then it should be investigated. It is definitely a tragic story…a promising young life cut short – why? There might never be an answer to that question…

R.I.P., Davy Jones

Davy Jones, the British lead singer of the pop band The Monkees, has died at the age of 66 after suffering a massive heart attack in his sleep, according to his publicist.  My favorite two Monkees songs are below.

I tend to feel sadder after the death of a musician or author, than of an actor or actress…books and music always meant more to me than movies or other visual media, I guess that’s the main reason.¬† I’ve always gained much more pleasure from a piece of music, or an awesome sentence or statement from a novel or crossword puzzle.
