Alberta Watson made this complex character truly unforgettable through her enormous talent as an actress. She had a long and very successful career, but she will always be Madeline to me. It’s still a shock that she is no longer with us but her presence will live on forever through this amazing show. Forever in our hearts. RIP dear Alberta.
Making sense of the mess that’s in my head has never been easy.
When I put pen to paper, that’s easy. That makes sense. That I can do as easily as breathing, as listening to my own heartbeat. I can arrange things in melodies and harmonies, cross out bridges that confuse the verses, shell out choruses with words that rhyme and roll off my tongue – simple.
But I’ve sat tapping my pen against my notebook night after night, trying to find the words to say, trying to come up with a half-way decent hook…and nothing comes. I try to convince myself that I love him, because I should. He’s the first person in my life who’s felt…stable. The first person who I felt like I could really rely on, who would never, ever cause me heartache. He makes me feel safe and comfortable, and that’s what I should want; I mean, isn’t that what love is supposed to be like? Safe and comfortable?
I can’t write him a love song. I can’t make anything rhyme and I can’t find the words to describe this feeling.
RIP Madeline💜 She was my little baby. I used to call her and her brother devils because they were so evil but now she’s up in heaven being my little baby angel. You didn’t have a long life Maddie but you were perfect in every way possible. Thank you Maddie for being one of the best and cutest cats I’ve ever had. I love you so much and you will be missed dearly. I hope you can be watching over me from little kitty heaven. I will never forget you Madeline
