By his own admission in the second interview on this link, David Bowie described himself primarily as a writer -- who was using music to tell his stories.
No wonder I always could relate to his works.
Last weekend, I was listening to his live version of "Heroes" followed by several other versions (his as well as covers; including his version in German) while I was redrafting the second story in The Casebook of Elisha Grey III. Monday morning, he was gone.
Yet, he's not. He lives through his incredible body of work, which we are lucky to be able to listen to, including his last album, released on his birthday -- just two days before his death.
Godspeed, David Bowie. You will be remembered. How could you be forgotten?

#RIPDavidBowie . . . whenever I need to "dance it off" your music will be at the top of my playlist, just like always.
