I'll never get this scene out of my head!

And while that was true of so many artists (Amy Winehouse immediately comes to mind); the same could be said of Whitney.

I always felt she was this generation's answer to Barbra Streisand (without all the political bull$#1%)!

The weird this is that just the other day, in wanting to add to my iTunes collection, I downloaded "Saving All My Love".

So, it's with a little irony that I sit here, early Sunday afternoon, writing about her passing...and not just about how sad her passing is.

But how sad a tale it had become.

One who possessed a gift some of us would kill for...and allowed it to wither like a flower that withers without sunlight or water.
