    This is sad. It sounds very painful. I saw her post on Facebook.

    Suicide is almost as bad as the general reaction to suicide, we look for the reasons behind it like 'escaping pain' or that dismissive doozey 'it's selfish' (as if no-one had ever been selfish themselves). We have a really hard time accepting the idea that some folks simply choose not to be among us anymore..... so we look for nicer, less painful narratives that question our place in that less.

    I've lost three good friends to suicide and while I miss them dearly I also decided NOT to ever judge them.....maybe because I didn't understand......maybe because they were my friends....but also because so many folks just seem to make shit up to make themselves feel better at the expense of others..... others who deserve to be remembered far better, like MY friends who were all FAR FAR MORE than their untimely ends.

    I feel awful for Charo and her son too. They must feel bereft.

    Just in case people didn't know, she is an expert flamenco guitarist who studied under Andres Segovia. One of my favorite styles. Whenever I hear it, it's like I'm transported on a magic carpet to some crazy exotic place. Here she is performing in concert, but there are zillions of clips of her doing this:

    I hadn't realized that Charo was Spanish, but you can hear it in her pronunciation. She was 51 years younger than her first husband, Xavier Cugat. They married in 1966 when he was 66 and she was...15. Her guitar playing is beautiful.

    ^Well, there seems to be something fishy going on with her age. Birth years vary from 1941 to 1951..........

    I love flamenco guitar. My parents wouldn't let me play because it was a 'male' instrument. Wasted years on the stupid flute, violin and piano.

    Edit - wish that someone wore her golden pant suit to the Oscars. That thing rocks.
