Negative Thoughts On Early Monday Morning

00000003

 

I am quite devastated re Anthony Bourdain’s  suicide….. and mad at him. Why did he do that ? His and Andrew Zimmern’s shows are two of my favorite shows , ever. ……. and I just binge-watched his Parts Unknown last month on Netflix.  ( I watched No Reservations  on Travel Channel )  . I was waiting for Season 2  of Parts Unknown, but now, I don’t think I can watch that anymore. It’s incomprehensible why very successful people like Anthony Bourdain would end their lives. There are millions and million others who struggle to keep themselves  alive,  people in war-torn areas and the sick, and people who are starving.  Was it the constant pressure  of  his  job, or had he gotten sick and tired of the endless travelling and living in hotels?  Didn’t he ever think of just quitting, leave everything behind, and live the rest of his life  watching his  11 – year old daughter grow ,  and smelling the roses?

 

It’s really a mystery how our minds work, isn’t it ?  Here’s the thing, though….. for some reason , I think I  understand  why  he had decided to end his life.  I have a confession to make.  I was so devastated, depressed,  and distraught over the election of this   T-t-t-trump  person  that I felt  I wanted to die.  Don’t get me wrong….  I didn’t think of ending my life… I just wanted to die….. big difference. But the emotion of disappearing from the face of the earth was frighteningly real .

Anyway,  I’m offering this flower ( amaryllis ) to Anthony Bourdain.  This one didn’t bloom for 3 years, and when it finally did, the gift of  beauty was spectacular.  Rest in peace, Anthony Bourdain.  ” You can go home home now  . You’re free. ”  ( a quote from the video game God of War )
