Sir Terry Pratchett

Farewell, Sir Pratchett

“Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colors. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving.”

Sir Terry Pratchett, A Hat Full of Sky (Discworld, #32)

We lost one of the greats today, Terry Pratchett was 66. I recommend reading this BBC article about his passing, it’s a good recap. The series of tweets towards the end of the article really got to me. There’s not enough humor in fantasy, his voice is already missed.

Big thanks to my friend Jed for sharing the quote I use above. It’s perfect. As I said on Twitter, I encourage other fans of Sir Pratchett to give a little towards alzheimer and dementia research. A little help can go a long way towards defeating such an awful disease.
