Happy Birthday David

I once walked across 1/2 the city to reach a David Bowie concert. I had no ticket and no money. Yet, I was determined to see him.  2 hours later I was sitting on a balcony watching the opening act play from someone’s roof. 30 minutes later I was being escorted into the concert by someone who had heard the story of the “little black girl who’d walked 5 miles in the dark just to see David Bowie.” It was like magic.

No one believed I’d see him and many actively tried to discourage me. But I got there, on my own. And I did exactly what I set my mind to do.

Happy 63rd birthday David Bowie and thanks for all the memories. 🙂
