It has been so good to read all the comments about David Bowie on here. One of the only comforts I’ve found from his death has been the bringing together of people who feel about him as I do.
Everybody’s story of discovering him is different – and from every decade from the 1960s to right now (my daughter)- but we all end up in the same place. Awestruck and convinced he is a person like no other.
When the news came I’d been playing Black Star obsessively since it came out just before and I went online and ordered some school lapel star badges in black enamel. I gave them to friends who I knew felt about Bowie as I do. We are the order of the Black Star.
You’re all in it.
I will write more about him, but for now, this picture at the top there is my favourite of him. It says it all to me. The beauty, the otherness.
