corner view "famous"

Me, well, I've told you people that I have admirations. Or obsessions, if it's necessary to call them that. But for me, I'm picky. Probably the first obsession was my Daddy. :) Then came Cathy Rigby after watching Peter Pan so many times that my sister and I could recite it from beginning to end. Then came the Beatles! Oh yes, an obsession that lasted 2 1/2 years. The longest one ever! Then came Amma. Robin Williams came when I was ten -- such a funny dude! It wasn't really an obsession at that point. Then Tom Hanks. Then Michael Jackson, one of my bigger ones. And now, Robin Williams again. Except this time, it's more of an obsession, plus, I can now see the PG-13 movies. :) Back then, I couldn't see much. And I couldn't see his stand-ups, he's not exactly...clean. But I love him anyway... :)

Anyway, all of these people changed my life in big ways and subtle ways. Whether it was teaching me music, making me want to learn gymnastics, teaching me joy and harmonies, teaching me compassion, or how to take on different characters when I act, or how gentleness and power can be combined into something brilliant, or how to make people laugh. I wish I could personally thank them for all that they've done for me. Maybe, some day, except for Michael, *sniff sniff*. Of course, I thank my dad all the time. :)

 Thank you Google for the Pictures :)

So, these are my favorite famous people! For more famous people, go to my mom, Theresa.

Interesting thought that those people all contribute a bit (or a lot :) to where you are now. I absolutely agree with you on the Beatles!

I have never had an obsession with famous people because to me they are just like you and me, but I can see where you are coming from.

You take something from each of their strengths, and learns from it, that's what I respect about you Sky.

beatles are just an all time fave.
good to look up to other people... watch the obsessions, though (just kidding, I'm as bad, everyone is. I call it "massive crush" rather than obsession, but hey :)
