Pretty soon now you're gonna get older

Listening to the radio on my way home from rehearsal tonight, I caught a few live David Bowie tunes, which KXCI played in honor of his 69th birthday. I thought about how there'd be an even bigger deal made next year, on his 70th birthday. I wondered what he was up to musically. And thought about how, although he wasn't old old, someday I'd hear of his death. I hoped it wouldn't be soon.

We don't always get what we wish for.

How many more years might we have had him if he hadn't been a heavy smoker?

Dunno. The cancer wasn't necessarily smoking-related. I guess we're lucky we had him this long given how many drugs he used to do.
