The death of David Bowie probably hit some harder than it hit me, but it was still a great loss for me personally. The death of Alan Rickman did not carry quite the same gravity for me personality, but I know others who felt that one harder. From both passings, a few brief thoughts spring forth.
- Cancer sucks
- Go and create.
Take the part of their spirit that inspired you (in your own time of course) and set out to create all those things you’ve been wanting to, whether you’ve been hearing their voices in your own self-written songs, scripts, novels, whether you’ve been seeing them in some way in your own self-imagined movies, paintings or comics.
Take that spark, grab onto that thing, and go out into the world and create your thing.
