Not Dead Yet

While it is strangely moving to realize that so many people around the world care so deeply about my life and death, I have to go with Mark Twain and insist that the rumors of my death have been greatly exaggerated.

It was Sir George Martin, of Beatles fame, who has passed away. Not me.

He will be missed. I never met Sir George (I did meet Paul McCartney once, for about a minute, while waiting for the valet to bring my rental car up at the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills), but like many millions of others, I loved the Beatles, and Martin's contribution to their music is worthy of recognition and honor.

In his memory:


As for me, I am still here, still writing, still editing, still going to movies and reading books, and I expect to hang around for quite a while yet, thank you very much.

But thank you all for caring.

Re: Sir Paul
It blew me away. I am afraid I got completely tongue-tied and acted like a moron.

Re: Sir Paul
I imagine much like I'd be had I run into you at a random Valet ;)

Re: Sir Paul
Is he included, after a fashion, in ASOIAF as the "Blue Bard" by any chance?

My 1 close encouter with stardom was when the elevator door opened and on walked Little Richard! He put his arm around my sitster and said "whats up sugar". We were both tongue tied and neither of us said a word. Talk about feeling like an ass after he left!
