Remembering Patrick Swayze
I hope everyone has started their week well. Usually this blog is reserved for comments on what celebrities may have had cosmetically done, who's had a make-over, what new surgical procedures and products are available to consumers, among other things. Today, however, I would like to dedicate this blog to a great star, Patrick Swayze, who according to multiple sources has passed away on Monday, September 14 to pancreatic cancer at age 57. I remember the first time I saw him was in Dirty Dancing and it was love at first sight! Although he was extremely masculine he made his dance numbers seem as easy as pie, like any joe could wake up one day and dance like Swayze. And then came Ghost co-starring Demi Moore, that movie made everyone want to take pottery lessons ASAP! That's whats so great about him, he could have been an action hero a la Arnold Swartzenager or Steven Seagal, but he chose to be portrayed as a sensitive and hopeless romantic. And honestly it didn't seem like he had to force it or act like one, I think he was a genuinely nice, humble and sensitive guy. He will be greatly missed, Rest In Peace.
