Goodnight Sweet Prince


and flights of angels sing thee to thy rest

For some strange reason, I never imagined you would die, as if creative genius was enough to render you immortal, but you will live forever in your body of creative work, and in the thoughts of people whom you inspired to let their own freak flag fly.   RIP Major Tom.

Though I'm fast one hundred thousand miles
I'm feeling very still
And I think my spaceship knows which way to go
Tell my wife I love her very much (she knows!)
Ground Control to Major Tom
Your circuit's dead, there's something wrong
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
Can you hear....

  1. It was a shock. I wore my fedora today, an empty, vapid thing to do, but it made me feel it was something - I'm not even sure why. A man at the coffee shop started a conversation with me about him. He's on everyone's minds.

  2. I cried when I heard - his music was so much the soundtrack of my life. I shall put on my red shoes and dance the blues...

  4. I was shocked. Planet Earth is blue and there's nothing I can do.

  7. Amazing the way he orchestrated his final "release" with his new album and poignant video. A true artist in all media, right to the end.

  8. I spent some time on You Tube looking at old interviews. He's riveting, whether he's singing or not. I would also like to suggest him as a visual role model for older men. We older women may wear glasses, but we're not blind. We still like a bit of eye candy. Aged, with just the right dash of spice, please.
