David Bowie – no words

David Bowie’s death has rocked me in a way I can’t explain and could never have expected.

I’m not going to add to the countless articles written about him. If you care enough about him to read one – and I’ve read many – you already know what he means to you and why.

And I’m not even sure I could at the moment.

So I’ll just show you this. I’ve mentioned before I’ve been trying to decide on a tattoo for years. This was just so obvious. I know many others will get the same but that doesn’t bother me.

Thanks for the music and the encouragement to be myself David.

    Love the tattoo John, I’d love to get a small black star on the inside of my wrist. David’s passing has affected me far more than I would have imagined it could. Like many others I have been watching interviews he did over the years and he seemed so articulate and hungry for knowledge about everything, both light and dark. I guess I would like something to remind me to venture out of my little corner of the world a bit more, be it through books, travel or art.
