phantomofguilt:

Nothing in this universe is eternal, everything comes to its end sometime; from the tinyest bacteria to the largest star.
The same happens with people. Some live for a couple of days, some others live enough time to see their great grand children get married. But the difference between people  and other beings, among other things, is the permanency. We still learn about men and women who lived to change the world we live in. All these people have achieved the greatest treasure a human being can long for: to stay in the memory of the next generations.
Taiji was no national hero. He wasn’t a great scientist, or a philanthropist, or a wealthy man. He wasn’t even the best musician in the world. He didn’t change the world, but he changed other people’s world.
We don’t know much about him. Even his last days are still a mystery. I wish he could share with us, in the shape of music, for the last time, how was the world seen in the eyes of a man whose troubled mind kept bugging him until the end of his days.

Taiji Sawada died on July 17th 2011, 45 years and 5 days after coming to this world. He may be gone, but he and his musical legacy will remain in our hearts forever.

The legend lives on.
