David Bowie – starman
From the album “The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars” (1972, RCA Records)
I woke up this morning with this song in my head and ever since I am humming it. When I was looking for the video just now, I kept singing along and, I took a liking to that blue guitar, beautiful instrument. I read a bunch of books about David Bowie, saw his movies, listen to his music quite often and one of my favourite mugs is a David Bowie mug too. I wouldn’t call myself a super fan, but he is definitely on my to-go-to list when I am not sure which music suits my moods. Coincidentally, my son Ollie who is fifteen years old was born on the same date as David. (January 8th).
My mood was not the best these days, I am not too sure why. Maybe it really is just the fact that I am never on my own. Yesterday, I was in a bit of a cocoon. I put my headphones on and turned the volume of the music up, then I read. I was not there for a whole while and it felt so so good.
A couple of days ago, I shared a French song by a band called Indochine. I am reading a book about them, written by their brother. Indochine were mainly Nicolas and Stéphane Sirkis, twins, and Dominique who was their drummer but also wrote songs. Stéphane passed away. Drugs and alcohol paved his journey. The brother who wrote the book, Christophe Sirchis (not a spelling mistake, the twins changed their names for it to be easier pronounceable) blames Nicolas for the death of his twin. I am not sure yet, if there is truth in the story or not, but for now, I am reading this book in its French version and it is easier than I thought it would be. I don’t read a lot of French these days.
so… anyway, I was not very social yesterday. I am still lonely, and I miss being hugged or kissed.
Oh well… Have a great Thursday,
