I cannot help but feel saddened when I hear of people dying so very young and generally before their time. The poor people of Norway who have experienced this through extremist views, and of course the talent that was Amy Winehouse to just cease to continue to glow and bring joy and pleasure to others is so sad.  
We should however remember that although Amy, like other talented artists who have died by the age of 30 (Jeff Buckley and his father Tim Buckley, Janis Joplin, Jimmy Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Kurt Cobain, River Pheonix, James Dean to name but a few) in dying so young is just so incredibly tragic, we still have something to remember them by and that is something we should be thankful for.


  1. So very, very sad. It wasn't a suprise, but so hard to hear. Been listening to her music today.

  2. I hadn't heard about AW...what a loss. I have been in my own little bubble lately...will have to read about what I have missed in the world and in the blogosphere ;)
    Hope all is good with you Joanna!
