The world lost one of it’s most creative and inspiring humans today. I wanted to celebrate his life with the help of the very talented artist Helen Green.
I don’t know all of Bowie’s music, or his life story, but I do know that he lived a supremely creative life. The music he made is like no-other, and has the ability to really transform. That is real creative magic at work.
His influence and impact on the music world, and on individuals is huge, proving that one human who projects and shares their creative spirit out into the world has the power to change so many things.
It feels like there is a huge space missing, a big void left, as I let the news settle in to my system. I wonder, and hope that we will gather courage to move forward and be ourselves to the fullest capacity. Do your thing, whatever that may be, to your best and fullest. Live your dream, and don’t be lazy, don’t waste time, and don’t be afraid.
For me, Bowie is a teacher. His wild imagination, and dedication to his work remind me that it’s OK to be exactly who you are, the strange, curious, creative human that you were born to be. It’s a gift when you share that with others, and when they share that with you. So don’t be afraid to give and receive.
He is reminder that art is transformative, and it is powerful! He didn’t just make the art, he became the art, and that energy just radiated. That is really beautiful. Thank you David Bowie.
