Chanteuse, R.I.P.



Oh shit. This just sucked. I was so very sad to hear this parting. It's like every time she was in the news we half expected to hear of her death. I really was hoping she might make it. If you follow a little astrology like I do through my astrologer friend Sharona...you will be familiar with the concept of Saturn Returns. Here is this shitty link with Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain, Janis Joplin and Jim Morrison some famous people who died during their first Saturn Returns...often a time of change or crisis or upheaval...or if you're lucky challenges.

I was always obsessed with looking at pictures of Amy Winehouse. Some people just have "it"...that incredible energy with a camera...I found her so compelling to look at, I loved her hair and oversized eyemakeup. I wonder if there was a crazy-assed party if theres an afterlife...can you imagine the party with Morrison and Janis? Can you imagine the kind of party that her and Kurt could get up to? I bet Kurt was just glad for another chick to join the gang...I kind of imagine Cobain and Winehouse having a lot in common music and ideas wise. I hope they are painting heaven red.

way way too young to go, such a waste, such a shame. Loved her music.

Interesting - return of Saturn eh?...

So at 27 I became a father... that is 21 years ago this coming Thursday actually. But makes you think, within a year I had admitted to myself that I probably was an alcoholic and I had to change. I just moved jobs and changed my drinking pattern but interesting isn't it that same age there was a big big crossroads in my life, esp my addicition life.

Sheila, I know I love her voice...and wonder what music we have missed with her gone.

Furtheron, Very interesting...big changes indeed. I really am inspired by your open-ness about your life. I look forward to catching up on your blog posts too. I am also inspired by your hard work and recovery regarding addiction...good on ya!

My son died at age 27 too. Its just too freaky. This hit me hard - I think your observation about the Saturn thing is fascinating - we are in this crazy shift - I feel it like an anvil dragging by a chain from my waist. Sigh.
