Dark Stars in the Sky

We’ve lost quite a few prominent artists this last week. It’s provoked quite a bit of thinking on my part. Especially because these artists in particular all took their own routes to expression.

David Bowie is a classic example of an artist who, on paper, shouldn’t work. Yet, his content re-invention and seeking of his own weird gave him a deep place in our world. They don’t hold Second Line celebrations like this for folks who didn’t make an impact.

Bowie kept creating until the very end. He followed his weird. I think we’re all richer for it.
