RIP Ms. Fisher
She was more woman than this world usually knew how to handle. From a very young age, Carrie Fisher had more smarts, more wit, more self-awareness than people three times her age.
She was an icon. She played one of the first Princesses who could fight as well as a man. She wrote books that were laugh out loud funny as well as brilliantly truthful. She was feminism personified.
Her friendships with women were legendary and I imagine there are more women mourning the passing of 'one of us' than men mourning the passing of the hot princess in the swimsuit chained to the fat guy.
She was the inspiration of Paul Simon's finest albums (Hearts and Bones), she championed for mental illness and she never lied.
I wanted to be more like her. More fearless, more willing, stronger.
She was my super-hero in her everyday self.
I'm mourning today. The world lost so much talent this year but today it lost Carrie Fisher and that's just a fucking tragedy.
