Re: Amy Winehouse one year later
Not a big fan but I liked some of her songs, and Rehab was great. Perhaps the point is that we can celebrate a talented singer who gave pleasure to many people - more than most of us have done. We can't all live our lives the same way and, while many of us live our lives mostly on a gentle simmer, some burn with intensity for only a short time.
Neither is better nor worse. All of our lives are a sneeze in eternity. Whether it's 27 or 87 years matters only to those who are close and is no one else's business, apart from dedicated fans like Reso. Mayflies only live for 24 hours. Imagine some old fuddy-duddy mayflies judging the more reckless members of their species because they lived fast and died at 7 hours ...
