No real post today

Hi Museum friends,
I must apologize, but I'm simply too blindsided by learning of David Bowie's passing to come up with anything meaningful this morning.  Bowie was a big part of my youth, and part of the reason I grew up loving inquiry, culture, and the new and strange.  Right now I'm listening to "Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars," the very first LP I ever bought by myself with money I earned from my first job (as a library page, natch).
I will see you tomorrow.

Over here in Australia my sister is in the next room watching that concert right now. He was an unforgettable man. Part of my growing up also. Such a shock.

Indeed. My spirits were quite low yesterday, yet I'm in awe of the quality of "Blackstar" - almost as if Bowie were leaving us instructions for how to translate ourselves, rather than die.
