This week has been tough. Not for any personal reasons (unlike last week when my car battery died, my phone fell in some water, and I hit a deer).

Two great men died this week. I didn’t know them personally,
but they still affected my life.

David Bowie and Alan Rickman were part of my childhood growing up. Now, as an adult I can appreciate them even more for their talent and what they gave the world.

Each of them gave us a piece of themselves that in turn changed our lives.

Whether it was hearing David Bowie’s music and knowing that just because someone is a little different, it doesn’t make them less than others. Being different is awesome!
His music inspired generations up until his death this week and will continue until the end of time.

Alan Rickman played roles that included villains, wizards, and more. He inspired those around him to be better or even just to believe that magic was real for a little while.

These moments they created for us who never met them are powerful.

We are changed for the better.

Even if we never met, I love you.

Rest in peace, Alan Rickman and David Bowie. You gave the world such gifts.



(David Bowie called this version of “Space Oddity” the “most poignant version of the song ever created.” )


    • Such great artists. <3 Thanks for visiting my little blog.

      And yes! Luckily my sister gave me her old phone until I can fix mine (the screen is fried, but it's possible that it'll work if I replace that according the tech guy at work! Fingers crossed.)

  • Thanks for sharing your thoughts on this Katy, it was interesting how they completely mirrored my own. I felt some strange sense of melancholy settle over me this morning as my husband once again woke me up to someone we have come to love, in the universal sense, passed away. I’m not at all sad that their suffering is over, I’m only disappointed that we no longer have their presence in this part of the universe.
