Whitney and me: two things...

~Saturday~  I went offline for two hours to watch Jane Eyre, which I loved:


and when I came back online, the first thing I saw on Facebook were two status updates in my news feed to the effect of, "RIP, Whitney."

My two most salient memories associated with Whitney are:

  1. In 1987, on a transatlantic flight on the way to London, Whitney appeared on the airline television station singing I Wanna Dance With Somebody, and I remember being blown away by it.

  2. In 1994, several months after I'd come out to my wife, this bittersweet memory lingers in my mind even to this day.

R.I.P., Whitney. Thanks for the music.
