David Bowie, 69

11 Jan

I don’t want to write this post.  There hasn’t even been enough time to fully mourn the passing of the last legend taken away in a heartbeat.

I am writing this with the heaviest of hearts… once again having been bitch-slapped as I heard the words whispered from across the hall… “David Bowie has died”.

Bowie - 2016-0110 RIP

Born 08 January, 1947, Bowie was taken from us just two days after the celebration of his 69th birthday, on Sunday, 10 January 2016.

I’m completely crushed.  I haven’t read any news stories yet… I’ve done nothing but sit in silence.  Opening tabs with the intention of reading, of listening, of watching a video.  But nothing will fill that deep hole that was ripped into me an hour and a half ago.  So I’ll end this post here, with a few links for you to follow through if you’d like.

Rest in Peace, dearest Sir… and thank you for the lifetime of entertainment you have provided to our souls. Here’s our two cents for the ferryman… May your journey be swift and peaceful.

… and we’ll all raise a glass in honor of you when we come out of our shellshocked awakening …
