R.I.P. Carrie Fisher

While we are big into recycling and re-purposing in our daily lives but I don’t usually re-use photos on the blog. Today is an obvious exception, as this photo of Sweetie from Halloween 2015 pays homage to Princess Leia Organa (Skywalker), as portrayed be the late Carrie Fisher.

I find Carrie Fisher’s life fascinating. From fame to relative obscurity back up to sci-fi royalty; fighting battles with fictional villains and real-life mental health ones. There is admittedly, more to her than just this one character.

We talked about this in front of the girls. And even though Sweetie chimed in on the conversation, she didn’t get what was going on. We try to talk about death as just another part of life, but it is still sad. Thankfully, fan response has been strong. In one tweet I read, the author wrote “Be Princess Leia in 2017…be a [general]”. And wife’s sentiments were, “In a world of Barbie dolls and damsels in distress, thank goodness there was Princess Leia.”
