Freedom 2016

Once again, 2016 took an 80’s icon.

When I first heard George Michael passed away, the first song and image that came to mind was, “Freedom! ’90.”

This is one of my favorite George Michael songs, and it was personal in that you had to change your life to live your truth, to be happy.

I blasted this song as my EAS (expiration of active service) approached. It was the end to one chapter, and on to the next. It was something I knew I needed to do.

It’s a song I still listen to from time to time, for when I once again, felt ready and anxiously awaiting for the next chapter in my life.

The only way to go is up, and George Michael has moved on to his final chapter. His music is the afterword.

Rest in peace, George Michael.

“Freedom! ’90,” George Michael

I think there’s something you should know

I think it’s time I stopped the show

There’s something deep inside of me
There’s someone I forgot to be
Take back your picture in a frame
Don’t think that I’ll be back again
I just hope you understand
Sometimes the clothes do not make the man
All we have to do now
Is take these lies and make them true somehow
All we have to see
Is that I don’t belong to you
And you don’t belong to me, yea yea
