You don’t have to be a David Bowie fan to appreciate all that he’s cnntributed to pop culture and the worlds of art, film and music in his lifetime. And how phenomenal it is that he completed his final gifts for these worlds, our world, in living, breathing works of human illumination as his own star went out.
Masterful, visionary, eternal.
Thank you, David Bowie, for making being an outsider cool so other outsiders could feel at home in an alien place and time. Thanks for the reminders that we’re all the same and each of us belongs. Thanks for bringing stardust into our lives many times over, and for honoring that we all came from and return to the same place.
Stardust. It’s forever.
