He can’t hear you now

Time to Read – A short time to read, a long time dead

He can’t hear you now

On 19 August Tony Scott, film director, committed suicide.

In many interviews during his life, he talked about the critics’ negative reaction to his work – those self
same critics who are now pouring out the tributes.

Tony can’t hear you now.

You may have had the same experience as me – sitting at a funeral, listening to a relative looking towards the coffin and saying something like – “I never told you how much you mean to me and why.”

It’s a bit late now.

Who are you close to, at whose funeral you might be asked to speak?

What will you say?

They won’t be able to hear you.

So, say it to them next time you see them.

Or don’t.

Your choice – do you want them to hear, and know, or not, and never know.

With my love and best wishes
