Just a reminder that we are all beautiful, frail creatures.

I never knew Micheal Stone, I wish him all the best.

This reminds me of Allan Watts, who had amazingly eloquent insights into the nature of the human condition and consciousness. And according to Wikipedia, "Friends of Watts had been concerned about him for some time over what they considered his excessive alcohol consumption." Which may or may not have led to his consequent heart attack.

I still very much enjoy Allan's enlightening talks.

I agree, DavidB. What it says to me is that even the most eloquent, evolved human being has their weaknesses, dark side and karmic build up, just like anyone else. I guess we watch what they do with it. How they move with it, how they sit with it, how honest they are.....
