It’s taken a while for me to post about this because for the first time in my life someone has died that had a great impact on me since I was a teenager. Today I officially say good bye to David Bowie. He was an artiste in every sense of the word. He was one of the fringe people that made it. He showed us that freaks and geeks could be cool, really cool. He was proud to be an original and waved his freak flag high! I loved his many faces and his transformations. Commander Tom, Ziggy Stardust, The Thin White Duke and now Lazarus. Lazarus is a story from the bible about a man who was brought back to life by Jesus. He resurrected. How I wish David could do the same BUT maybe he will through his music and art. I read the other day that there are at least 5 years worth of songs for us to hear and that they will be released at certain intervals. So maybe in his own way Bowie will still be here, just not in the flesh form.
I was literally heart broken to hear he had died. To be honest I cried. I still tear up when I hear anything about him. I happened to be listening to my itunes on shuffle the other day and Fame started playing. I went to quickly skip it and made myself stop. Here was a chance to pay some sort of homage to the man and I sang and cried my heart out. I rarely get this sappy publically but this one hurt to the core. David has been in my heart for many many years, as he has been for many of his fans. He was an amazing gentleman with charm and intellect. I kept going to youtube and watching old videos of him that make me smile and warm my heart. When the universe made David Bowie they broke the mould.
Good bye, Ziggy. This goth misfit wont forget you, ever.
