As most of you must have heard by now sir Christopher Lee has passed away leaving the world a poorer place. Death is just one point of the natural order of things, everyday thousands die and none is more important or different from the other besides him or her – what really sets someone apart is the legacy one leaves behind. And this man is truly a legend, from a fierce warrior through an astounding artistic career, to a very special place in our imagination and culture sir Christopher Lee is both a legend that has passed away as he is a legend that will endure throughout the ages among the very best.
I’m not here to make a tribute, or post parts of his vast and great work, all I want to say is thank you sir for everything you have given us.
“End? No, it doesn’t end here. Death is just another path, one which we must all take. The grey rain-curtain of this world rolls back, and all change to silver glass… And then you see it… White shores, and beyond, a far green country, under a swift sunrise”
