The recent news and article about American opera star Beverly Sills death made me again think of "life" in general.
I had the same feeling when I first knew about Bubbles as she was called. Life is cruel to everyone; the famous and not so famous- as we are. She had a daughter who was born deaf. Here was a woman who had the voice of an angel and if she sang lullabies to her baby, the child never heard her mother's magnificent voice. I just read in the article, which I hadn't known before, that the daughter has MS and a son born to Beverly is autistic. I'm sure she had seen to their care if something had happened to her. Her husband passed away last year.
Another strange thing.....she had been disgnosed just a few weeks before with inoperable lung cancer. She never smoked. The thing that surprised me though is that a singer learns to use their lungs properly. They are certainly exercised and one would think this would strengthen them. Isn't it strange that this was the part to give out.
Life? It will always remain a big question that no one can explain.
