George Harrison and the Spiritual Spectrum


I’ve found it odd how much the death of George Harrison has affected me. Considering that I wasn’t the world’s biggest teenage Beatles fan until the late 80s and early 90s, I’m notably younger than the generation that grew up with George and for whom his death is a direct reminder of their own aging.

George, though young yet, was not a victim of his fame and lived his life through.
