I always wanted to be Karen Carpenter. Her music touched my soul like no other. Like many people in the 70s I had no idea she had anorexia. Her music still haunts me to this day and now her life and her illness haunt me as well. I often ask "Why?" but never get an answer. I know it was her brother who wrote the lyrics, but her voice gave them a resonance that will make them last forever. RIP Karen. I love you.
