I decided that I wanted to reread Harry Potter as one of my 2016 resolutions.
Well, it’s been a while since I read them and I feel like I’m losing my grip on the details. I just want to lose myself again in the story, read it again with older eyes.
A couple of days ago, I heard the news that Alan Rickman died of cancer. It hit me like a cannonball as I’m sure it hit a lot of people.
Even though I got to know him as Snape, I’ve seen a lot of his movies since and I’ve loved him in every single one. I loved his voice and I loved his general character. When you hear actors talk about him, he seems like such a kind person.
Just thinking about him being dead makes me cry again.
I decided to reread Harry Potter back in December but now I want to do it almost as a tribute to him.
As a way of saying goodbye.
Because you will be missed, Alan Rickman.
I’m not ready to say goodbye, yet.
I’ll say goodbye when I reach “Always”.
