Jeff Healey died of cancer today.


It's interesting now having been through a cancer death myself how I see the deaths of others.  Although I've never witnessed it... when the article describes how his last hours were "difficult" I no longer need to rely on my imagination to conjure images I'd rather forget.  Difficult seems a very polite way to put it.

Life is difficult, and I can't imagine a life more difficult than the one this man lived.  Although neither can I imagine one so well spent.  Short as it was... it was lived pursuing the light that was taken from him when he was a kid.

I won't go into what a wonderful musician he was, I don't think anyone needs any convincing of that.  He is however, one of the icons of Canadian music today who is truly out there, living the life of a rockstar... fighting all the way.

Goodbye Jeff...
