naked trees in winter 
What dark surprises, what twists and turns are hidden in YOUR heart? 


I would have chosen Jareth. 

RIP David Bowie.

  1. So David, “Are you floating high above the world?” Wherever you may be, you will not be forgotten, and the mention of your name will continue to bring many smiles to many faces for a time much, much longer than any fleeting sadness could ever last. “This is Ground Control, over and out.”

  2. My first film production for college was to “Let’s Dance”. It was an animation done with a Barbie doll. Loved the song and what a talent. By the time I get to the next plane….it should be populated with some great musicians. There’s something to hold on to 🙂

  3. This week I will play a lot of David Bowie music. The brilliance of his melancholic oddness is what taught me that we are all weird, sometimes we simply pretend to be not because “fashion.”

    This night I gave the album “Low” a good listen. Life goes on from “station to station.”

    R.I.P. dear David Bowie.

  4. Labyrinth seems to have been made for him. He always had an other-worldly quality, ahead of his time, or outside of time, yet still human, with a human heart. I like to imagine he is starting a fantastic new adventure now.

  5. I wanted to BE him.
    Mind you, as a consolation prize, I’d have picked him. A thousand times over, I’d have picked him.
    I would have loved him, feared him, did anything he asked, and let him be my slave.
    My heart goes out to his family.
    He’ll be sorely missed.
    Rock on, my glorious space alien goblin king. Rock on.

  6. “The Hound of Heaven” by Francis Thompson:
    I FLED Him, down the nights and down the days;
    I fled Him, down the arches of the years;
    I fled Him, down the labyrinthine ways
    Of my own mind; and in the mist of tears
    I hid from Him, and under running laughter.

  7. I’m not quite sure how I feel about Bowie’s passing. Knowing young people who are dying, I find it harder to get emotional over the death of someone dying at 69 when they’ve barely had a chance to live. Then again, when someone has spoken to so many people at a really deep level and maybe saved many, many lives through his music and by helping awkward people feel less alone, 69 years is nowhere near enough and yet we’re mortal.
    My favourite song is Space Oddity and I really appreciated a version performed by astronaut Chris Hadfield in space:

  8. Yeah. RIP. Like one my older brothers says: They’re dropping like flies.
    (My brother’s from 1946)
    Bowie certainly knew how to make an exit.
    Releasing his last record and Bham!
    So maybe RIP is not right: Keep singing David?
    Have a great week, Victoire.
    (I have officially caught with all my backlog. 🙂
