Music Monday-David Bowie

I'm an instant star. Just add water and stir.

I started this draft back on November 2, 2015 and it's been sitting there since.  I had no idea he was ill.  David Bowie was such an amazing artist and so off the wall, yet so on point.  I pulled out my own Bowie collection about a week ago so I could clean it and shelf it in our family room (one of my goals for the New Year). After hearing the news I sat down for a bit this morning and started cleaning them.  My mom was a fan so I have early memories listening to him in 70s and early 80s. His voice is still so soothing and cool to me.  

I read this article when I woke up this morning.  

Here is another good one.  

Just a reminder at how important it is to be you.  There was only one David Bowie.  What if he decided early on to go in another direction?  I was always very realistic about my future but what if? What if I had followed my heart?  What if we all did?  It's not just about living out your dreams.  At some point we have to be realistic and get jobs.  But that's not to say we can't live out our dreams or be ourselves even on a small scale.  I love vintage clothes but am sometimes hesitant about wearing that God awful muu muu that I'd REALLY LOVE to wear.  I think this is a reminder that life is indeed short and there is only ONE you.  If you want to wear blue eye shadow to PTO I personally think you should.  In fact, I think I will wear that muu muu.  I might even buy those gold spandex pants. Yup, going to do it for sure!  

The truth is of course is that there is no journey. We are arriving and departing all at the same time.

xoxo, Amy

  1. I'm still in shock after hearing about his passing this morning. My first memory of him was watching Labyrinth at your house. I remember thinking he was creepy and attractive all at the same time :D
