David Bowie's Life in Pictures

The first time I fell in love with David Bowie was when I was around twelve years old. My mother put on one of her favourite movies, Labyrinth and I can still remember the chills I got from watching it. I specifically remember the creepy creatures in the movie, but even more so, David Bowie’s character and his infamous song, “Magic Dance”. It was everything I remember it being: hip, cool, fun. I even came across a vintage album of the “Magic Dance” and listened to it on repeat all night long. And that's when my love for Bowie grew. I had to have all his music, the movies he starred in (even if just a few), and I remember feeling inspired and happy. He was a happy and talented man. His music not only inspired many, but I think it also saved many people along the way, as well. 

I’m incredibly saddened that his demise came all too early this week. He will be forever loved and missed. Here’s to you Ziggy. I know you’ve finally found Mars <3
