The truth is, I never once considered the fact that David Bowie would die. I didn’t even think he *could* die. Maybe I spent too many hours watching and rewatching Labyrinth as a kid, but he always seemed immortal to me. I didn’t know him personally , but I was always stunned by his beautiful imagination. His music is surprising and delightful and poignant and everlasting. Ashes to ashes, stardust to stardust.
