michael crichton passed away.

in middle school, i read all his books. i loved them. sphere, jurassic park, andromeda strain, he took something amazing and made it tangible.

his work inspired movies, some very good, some very very bad. the ideas were original.

i don't even know how to end his post. i can't say he will be missed - his involvement in my life has come and gone. i can say he did make an impact on my 13-year-old mind, and fanned my love of books. i can't wait to discuss his stories with my kids, just like i used to do with my mom and dad.

Aw, I was sad when I saw that too.

The ones that had an impact on you growing up are always super special.
