Too Soon.

When I heard that Amy Winehouse had passed away I can’t say that I was surprised, but I was deeply saddened.  That girl could really sing.  I used to listen to her album all the way through on repeat when I was going through a particularly difficult time a few years ago.  Her voice had such…soul. 

The worst part of all of this is the realization that drug addicts either get sober…or die.  It’s really that simple.  We’ve seen it among the celebrities sect of course, but what really scares me are the people I know that think they are recreational drug users.  There is no such thing.  Everyone thinks they are going to be fine.  The reality is, you really never know. 

In memory of her wonderful talent, here is my favorite Amy Winehouse song.
