David Bowie, gone but not gone



     David Bowie, gone yet never gone.   A beautiful, brilliant, eternally creative, elemental man.  He was one of my first crushes, and it has never gone away.   Because how could one not love Bowie?

      I met him once (briefly, mostly just a hello), but I can still remember his smile.

      Below are a few videos from YouTube.  A couple are the original videos, others just songs.
      So many songs I could include, but these are a few that struck me yesterday, as part of my own 24 hour Bowie fest.



Heroes



Life on Mars?



Space Oddity



Oh! You pretty things


Sorrow



Memory of a free festival

Touch, we touched the very soul
Of holding each and every life.
We claimed the very source of joy ran through.
It didn't, but it seemed that way.
I kissed a lot of people that day.

"The Sun Machine is coming down, and we're gonna have a party."
"The Sun Machine is coming down, and we're gonna have a party."
"The Sun Machine is coming down, and we're gonna have a party."
"The Sun Machine is coming down, and we're gonna have a party."
"The Sun Machine is coming down, and we're gonna have a party."
