We live on borrowed time

A real audio song on a blog!
I don't think I've ever done this. 

but .. 

(1985 - 4th February 2009 ) 

A voice and 'song' we will no longer hear. 
A man of passion and vision. 
Too suddenly taken away. 
A great loss. 

How unreal. 
I always thought "There'd be time, there'd be time. I'd see him again."
So many conversations that were postponed to a more "convenient time" 
But now, time is no more.

Death always puts life into perspective. 

Are you ready?

The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference.
The opposite of art is not ugliness, it's indifference. 
The opposite of faith is not heresy, it's indifference. 
And the opposite of life is not death, it's indifference.
-Elie Wiesel- 

In his life and now through his death, ( death! it's hard just stringing that sentence.. ) Markus certainly lived. May his heart and passions and the many causes he strongly believed in live on through the hearts of the many he's touched during his brief stay here. 

We will miss having you on this plane, Markus Ng. 

Sometimes you have to be broken
to know what it means to be full
Sometimes you gotta fall
to know what it means to stand up tall

So when you're ever there
when life seems unfair
when you've hit the floor
Remember, the only way to go is up
So grit your teeth
clench your fists
one thing for sure
You're gonna come out stronger

Fix your eyes on the hill
for wisdom, strength and will

- Strife, Markus Ng ( March 2005 )
