Man in the Mirror

This evening we watched the news and I was saddened. The news reporter said that Michael Jackson has passed away. The news reports told me about how young he was when he became famous - 10 years of age - my brother's age. Also that he kept changing his face as he got older, his Dad and all the many concerts they had to do as children. He was an extremely talented musician as well as a very good - actually excellent dancer. My favourite song of his is Thriller. My Dad likes it so much he knows the whole routine. He taught me the moves so now I know it.
I was very very sad when I heard this. To me there will never be another MJ.

RIP Michael Jackson 1958-2009


  1. Hi Toreka. I was saddened too when I learnt about this news. Yes - he is an exceptional musician - entertainer - one of a kind. His influence through his music and further is so strong. He wrote some beautiful songs that I know will be around for a very long time. Keep up the good writing Toreka, I enjoyed reading your post today.
    MJ rocks!

  2. I'm sure Toreka that a lot of people reading this post will relate to how you felt that day. I know many people were great fans of Michael Jackson and he will be sorely missed. Aren't you lucky to have such a talented Dad to teach you the thriller moves. I was very impressed when I saw the movie about your thriller item. Keep up the fantasyic writing. I think it is fantastic how you are always eager to find out and try ways to make your writing even more entertaining and interesting for your readers. Tino pai.
