John Hughes passed away yesterday...

August 7th, 2009 (12:22 pm)
current song: Don't You Forget About Me

I was off-line and media free yesterday.

I had taken C to the dentist that morning for a root canal,
and stayed with him all day to make sure he was alright...
Made him soup.

I am sitting here, stunned.
I just learned of the death from a friend's Facebook page.

stunned. shaken.

My 20th High School Reunion was last month...
That man wrote the 'sound track' for our--for our LIVES back then.
He dressed us, gave all us DoDDS our language and loves and ticks...
He was all we knew of American High School.

He defined my generation.

I will write more, I know.
But for the moment I am all silence and loss.
So many levels of confusion.


My 39th birthday is next month.

Me hair

So many of us survived our teen years only because of John Hughes and that song.
