    2. I know what you mean, Jon, I feel the same way. I thought of you this morning when I read this sad news.

      I saw two of David Bowie's shows and he was spectacular, mesmerizing, unforgettable. A one-of-a-kind talent, he shared on his terms, which made him even more special. He was far beyond generous and we are enriched through his art.

  3. Somehow you never thought he could die.

    I’ve spent the day with his music ringing round my head. Thinking about growing up with him – you as the Thin White Duke; Carol’s going through her Ziggy Stardust phase. He was woven into the fabric of our lives and will be missed.

    1. He WAS my teenage years, every bit as much as Debbie Harry or Marc Almond... Jx

  4. Looking at the brilliant range of work the man produced it is like losing a giant, and like Shakespeare or Dickens he has made our culture richer and will be missed keenly,

  6. Jon, you were the first of my online group whom I thought of after I heard the sad news.

    As History boy said, "He was woven into the fabric of our lives."

    I feel like a part of me has "left the building" so to speak.

    1. ...stepping through the door
      And I'm floating in a most peculiar way
      And the stars look very different today."


      We are all floating a bit this week. Jx

    2. I was speaking with someone about how I feel a personal loss even though I didn't know Bowie. However, I couldn't express myself eloquently in words about how I feel. "Floating" comes closest.

    3. None of us knew him, but his mere existence sustained so much of our being. It hurts to lose that sustenance. Jx
