Last night a little magic went out of the world with the death of the incomparable David Bowie. Many much more eloquent, and significantly more rested tongues than mine are/will be singing the praises of this great artist, but I wanted to share my own little celebration of his life. Thank you Ziggy Stardust for the music, style, and wonder you brought to the world. And for Jareth the Goblin King.
As another fun snippet, here is a link to his Formative Reading List, featuring 75 of the artist’s must-reads and including such gems as A People’s History of the United States by Howard Zinn and Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov.
Lastly, let us console ourselves knowing that while Tilda Swinton lives, Bowie can’t really be gone (because clearly they are in fact one person)…and that, when you get right down to it, we are all made up of stardust.
