My Many Muses: David Bowie

Since his death, I, like so many other people, have been listening to a lot of David Bowie.

There are so many great Bowie songs that I love but my favorite will always be "Rock N' Roll Suicide" from The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars, for one simple reason: because when I listened to that song as a misunderstood teenager and he sang, “You're Not Alone”, I believed him (and I still do). I believed him because David Bowie didn't just make being different or weird look cool, he made it meaningful, he made it beautiful - he made it art. It made me realize that, in my own way, I could do that too.

And that is why I believe in Bowie, always.

Peace, Love and Art,
