Credit to The Elephant Journal – a really cool site you might check out, sign up, and enjoy. I thank them for running this. Please take a moment and read it. After Tony Bourdain’s death, I think about how his shows became more about the reality of the everyday person and how they live; what is done to them; and the utter lack of need, other than greed and profit and control, to do those things.
Perhaps he came to see the world in such a stark reality – and people’s attempts to still find joy and happiness admidst the warmonger, fearmongering “elite” and their oppressions – that his Spirit just decided it was enough. We’ll never know until we, ourselves, are in spirit. But I for damn well am going to sit down and have a drink with him. Tony…wherever you are…you rock.
