Quote Challenge Day 2

I know the quote challenge was supposed to be on consecutive days but I ended up having a bit of a crazy day yesterday and I completely forgot. However I am back today with the following words of wisdom:

But I all know we can’t all stay here forever, so I want to write my words on the face of today, and then they’ll paint it – Shannon Hoon

During the 90’s everyone lamented the death of Kurt Cobain, which was a great tragedy to be sure but for me the death of Shannon Hoon just over a year later from a cocaine overdose was a much sadder loss. Shannon Hoon was the lead singer and song writer of Blind Melon, a band I listen to almost constantly and whose beauty in both lyrics and the unique sound of Hoon’s voice make them quite probably my favourite band. I love this quote because Shannon sums up so eloquently both the power of living in the moment and the desire to leave a legacy. Gone way way too soon.
