I was so much longing for the MICHAEL OPUS to arrive.I couldn't see the moment !
Finally,that moment came.The e-mail said:It is being shipped,estimated day of delivery,Friday,8th,January.My agony was at the tops.
You can imagine how I felt when mu husband entered home,carrying the box in his hands,three days earlier than I expected it.He urged me to open it,only because he didn't know the content of it.
My hands were shaking.I unwrapped it as gently and smoothly shaky hands could.My heart's treasure was inside it ! I had to use my husband's help to get the OPUS out ! It is heavy,huge ! I just touched it,carressed it !!! anything else,I was unable to do .
It had to be the next day,by noon,when I took the decision to open the red coverage and take the OPUS out.Black colour on the exterior,The MOONWALKER's gracious,delicate shilhouette on both the coverage and OPUS front !
I started changing pages !One by one,images of MICHAEL,from child to adult,images giving the sense he is about to pop out and stand in front of you !
I cried,MICHAEL is so alive in it !
Reading the witnesses of his colleaques,his friends,the witnesses of people who have actually met him,THE LEGEND,THE ICON,THE MYTH,THE GOD,THE MAN ! I'm meeting THE MAN,THE HUMAN !THE MAGNIFICENT MAN,THE PERFECTIONIST,THE PERFECTION !
I'm stuck on these pages,reading,learning,sucking knowledge for him, from him.....!!!!!!!! Getting acquainted with MICHAEL is evidence of why I love him so much !!!!
I'm the fragile now,afraid should he leave these pages and hug me,I'll break into billions of small particles.!!!
Seeing him as an icon,gives you the benefit of admiring him from the distance,through this OPUS is getting the chance of meeting him face to face,which is an entirely different feeling!!!
HE IS MORE MAGNIFICENT,MORE ALIVE,CLOSE IN A WAY I HAVE ONLY BEEN IMAGINING !!!!
I CAN'T BUT LOVE HIM MORE !!!!
I CAN'T BUT CRY EVEN MORE !!!!!!!
