How you turned my world you precious thing


The first time I saw David Bowie was when I watched Labyrinth with my Dad when I was quite young, possibly in kindergarten. And I remember he put on one of those extras after a movie where they show the making and I asked my Dad "Who is that?" And he told me David Bowie. I thought I was in love. I envied Sarah in the ballroom scene. And as I grew up, the more music I listened to by him made me love him in a different way. My family teased me about how I found him attractive and they thought I wanted to be with him. He was attractive to me not in a "I think he's hot" but attractive because he wasn't afraid to go against the norm and expressed him self in many ways. I look up to him almost like a brother or father. And I think many feel the same way. He's an inspiration to many and although we didn't know him personally as David Jones, we knew a part of that person. And to have lived in the same time period as David Bowie is a gift. Him releasing an album on his birthday was such a selfless thing to do. That he cared about his fans in that way, to give us one last gift. One last piece of his art and of his soul. He's a beautiful man. As David Bowie and David Jones. And I hope his family knows that there are millions of people who care about them and not just Bowie passing. I know it's a hard time but you have millions of people who love and support you. "The truth is of course is that there is no journey. We are arriving and departing all at the same time."
