Carrie Fisher

Please 2016, don’t take Princess Leia!

Carrie Fisher remains in hospital after having a massive heart attack on a plane two days ago. My thoughts are with her and her family.

I saw Carrie perform when she came to Canberra a couple of years ago on a speaking tour. She was fabulously warm, down to earth, funny as and I could have listened to her all night.

She is also wonderfully recalcitrant at all times.


Although I’m not a Star Wars groupie (I said Leah not Leia in my tweet – whoops!) I have enjoyed all the films throughout my life.

2016 has been particularly vicious this year with its decimation of 80s stars – Generation X feels quite attacked.

Let’s hope Carrie can recover and go on to live a long and happy life after this.

In the meantime, here is one of her fabulous quotes – of which there are many by the way!

“Youth and beauty are not accomplishments. They’re the temporary happy by-products of time and/or DNA. Don’t hold your breath for either.”

Wishing you all the happiness the Universe can bring
