David Bowie

It was 1972, I remember walking a friend home, across the park, it was a dark summer night, and the heat of the day still clung to our skin. We were young, exuberant, and in love with David Bowie. Joy and optimism fed our youthful glee  as we fervently discussed this man, David Bowie, who was, we decided, an innovator, the setter of new standards, styles, and trends, the one to be followed. Little did we know that this man would continue to set the mark til 2016. 

Still the fervent joy of that night lingers in my heart, not a distant memory, but one that remains fresh, like those that inspired it, both my good friend and David Bowie.
