Bill Evans died at late 40's of his age, and Chet Baker died in the middle of his 50's...John Coltrane is of course missed, John Lennon's case is crazy...many passed at their good time.
Not only musicians but many of wonderful novelists in Japan died young. Some of them suisided.
I'n not so young any more, so I recently seem to understand how they regarded their life at their last years. Living long is good, but just living long is not always good for somebody.
Many of people around me also grew old with me. My loving dogs are also old. Being old tells a lot, but they are not unhappy now. Dogs can't live long compared to human, but I think they are happy to live their life even if it's only 10 years or 15 years. I think it means we are all blessed with our own lives.
I want to thank all of them for showing me how we can live beautifully.
