Not such a happy birthday...

Yesterday was my 52nd birthday. I have now started my fifty-fourth year.
This was what I posted on facebook yesterday.

"Mostly what I feel this year is heartbroken over all the revelations about people I grew up loving and admiring.

Most of all Marion Zimmer Bradley who, along with Ursula K. Le Guin, did more to make me a science fiction fan than anyone else.

Rolf Harris wrote what is, to me at least, an anti-war song as great as any.

Heartbroken, when written down, doesn't really cover what I feel right now....

Thank you for the birthday wishes, but this cannot be a happy birthday.

I will always love and be a fan of Darkover, but how hard it will be to read of all my feminist heroes from those novels; knowing who created them.

Heartsick maybe; though I'm sure there are words in other languages that describe it far better.

Another year starts soon.

It has to be better.
"

Goddess watch over us all,
'tis ok to be Takei,
Ray.
