A little comic diversion

Tonight the lab crew went out on the town and saw a little comic improv. The tiny venue was tucked inside a smoky warehouse basement, but it packed quite a few laughs. It was fun... it was what I needed. Between news of Iraqi children being blown to bits and former child stars taking their own lives, it's been a depressing few weeks. A little silliness can be therapeutic. Thanks, Cabaret Dada.

How dare you get over this death so soon?!

Living my life doesn't mean I've forgotten about Jon's death. As we speak I am creating a memorial for him. But I can not live consumed by his death or anyone else's. If I do that, I am doing no good for anyone else.

I am sure that none of us on this Message Board are over Jonathan's death.I am certainly still trying to come to terms with what has happened and am a very long way from over it.He was one of my personal favourites,he was high on my list of people I would like to meet,and losing him hurt,very badly indeed.

At the moment I am in the process of working on material for Drina's forthcoming memorial website to Jonathan which goes live on January 1, I am also working on an article about Jonathan to be published in January 2004.And I will tell you this much,if I could have just one wish it would be that Jonathan was still alive to see them.
I am guessing that most of us on this MB and who will in future be associated with the website are either working or studying full time.We also have other things we have to do.I help run a hospital radio station for instance ,including hosting a programme there tomorrow morning,I also help organise TV fan conventions and do a whole load of related activities as well.So I hope you will forgive me if I go to a Bootleg Beatles gig for a couple of hours on Sunday,It certainly doesn't mean that I have got over Jonathan's death.It might mean that I find fresh meaning in some of the classic Lennon and McCartney songs which I can relate to Jonathan and help focus me on him even more.

I am sure that the fact that so many people are willing to give up so much of their spare time to do this sort of thing is testament to the high regard in which they all hold Jonathan.My simple intention is to do whatever I can to ensure that his memory is never allowed to fade.

I still cantcant believe JONATNANS gone either.His death will take a LONG time to get over.I keep saying to myself-i would have NEVER believed he would do that-i like many of you have dealt with my own depressoin-had a nervous breakdown in 95,JONATHANS pictures and movies aalong with a shrink a n antidepressants for 5 months helped .I just WISH TO GOD he could have fought his depression and WON,instead of giving up.i had suicidal thoughts too.many times.i believe he couldve made a comeback given a little more time and patience.i know this has been the 2nd worst holiday season since 95 for me.not much holiday cheer here.
