The Arrow Has Flown

David Bowie’s Last
Surprise Is His Saddest

Here’s a mutation we never wanted him to undergo. And it had to be from the very top, again, which he reached over and over again, each time a different character, every time a step closer to greatness.
Now he did it: David Bowie passed away just a few days after his 69th birthday, a few days after releasing Blackstar, his last album and arguably one of his strangest, if that’s even possible.
We got so used to be startled by him that it’ll be hard to settle on his final bow. But now that his trip is done, we may finally get it, and in the process, learn something more about our own.
You gave enough to the world, including the arrest of your final twist. Years will go by and we’ll still be deciphering the wonder of your trajectory. We’re now keepers of your music and your art.
Rest in peace, David.

    David Bowie was one of my favorite artists of all time. He was a savvy, rare talent, and a true original. He will be missed. Rest in peace, brother. Now, you truly are a Starman. — YUR

      People were singing his songs in the streets of Manhattan, last night. There’s a touching memorial in front of his building; many languages were being spoken, but the grief was one and the same. Another one of my heroes is gone. Thanks for the reblogging.
