I am very sad to hear the news of Tom Petty’s death. Close friends of ours saw him just last week when he and his band performed at the Hollywood Bowl. They said he was fantastic.
Life feels unpredictable and fleeting at this moment. The tragedy in Las Vegas last night, the hurricanes, the earthquakes, the general chaos that feels as if it is unfolding in too many areas in this country and around the world makes me recognize that it is time to breathe slowly in and out. Tom Petty was alive and performing just days ago and now he’s dead. Life changes on a dime. But I’ll stand my ground.
