The family and I went off for an adventure, a road trip out and about. First off we went to a pub for lunch, then off to the park for kids to play and then we went to try some wine at some cellar doors. A rather enjoyable day, aside from the usual squabbles from two four year olds.
We then got back home for hubby to tell me that Cory Monteith from Glee had died. I did not believe him. I cried, “NO!”, “That can’t be!” But it was true. Like everyone is reporting he was found in a hotel room in Vancouver Canada.
I thought him every bit the spunky, fresh eyed, and wonderful good looking actor that allowed me to be transported to my younger days. I like most people have watched Glee since it started and enjoyed pretending I can sing and dance as well as the cast can. I do believe that I could be good if given the chance, but alas Hollywood is not knocking down my door to see.
Cory did remind me of a boyfriend I had and some happy times as a carefree teenager and brings back some fond memories. I do have carefree times now but with kids there are not a lot of them. I am sure all parents out there would be nodding in agreement with this.
I am very miserable to learn of his passing and Glee will not be the same without him. I know he was dating his co-star Lea Michele in real life and I send out love and hugs to you Lea as this is a horrible thing to have happened. I also want to extend my thoughts to his family and friends at this devastating time.
Glee makes me also think about my childhood love of musicals. I used to watch the Sunday afternoon movie and it was nearly always Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, I adored those films and was mesmerized by the dance, costumes and singing. As a child I tried to copy the dancing and dreamt of one day giving it a go. Glee is the new musical outlet other than a musical, it does the same for me as Fred Astaire did for me all those years ago.
Have you been touched by Glee and also saddened at Cory’s passing. I was looking forward to seeing what he did after Glee and how his talent and career developed, it is so sad that I will never find out like everyone what would have happened next. Sending love to all.
