I received a text from my husband this morning asking if I heard who had passed away. I was getting laundry started and hadn’t gotten on the computer yet so I had not a clue. When he texted me back the words “David Bowie”, I couldn’t believe it.
David Bowie couldn’t be dead. He was untouchable, magical.
But he was dead, he is dead.
To say I lost a piece of my childhood today would be an understatement. Not only was he a musical genus, he was an extremely talented actor. As a child of the 80s, I grew up watching David Bowie in Labyrinth (which is and always will be one of my favorite movies and soundtracks), squealed when I saw him in Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me and laughed hysterically when he was on an episode of Extras.
This world is now less magical. Rest easy Goblin King, you will be truly missed.
