Nice to see some pictures come in from Clint.

I found this one to be quite touching. The girl looks so sad, absorbed in thought. The man behind her—what’s he doing … do they know each other or is he just passing behind her? I cannot figure out where this is unfolding: it’s a public place. Not a movie theater.  A bus or train? A story unfolding. How does it end?

Beautiful color palette and wonderful apping by Clint.

One year ago today, on his birthday David Bowie released this song as a single, with no warning or explanation, his first musical release after ten years of silence.

Where are we now? Thought it would compiment this picture perfectly. Happy Birthday, Mr. Bowie. And thank you, Clint.

Had to get the train
From Potzdamer platz
You never knew that
That I could do that
Just walking the dead

Sitting in the Dschungel
On Nurnberger strasse
A man lost in time near KaDeWe
Just walking the dead

Where are we now?
Where are we now?
The moment you know
You know, you know

Twenty thousand people
Cross Bose Brucke
Fingers are crossed
Just in case
Walking the dead

Where are we now?
Where are we now?
The moment you know
You know, you know
As long as there’s sun
As long as there’s sun
As long as there’s rain
As long as there’s rain
As long as there’s fire
As long as there’s fire
As long as there’s me
As long as there’s you

Where are we now? by David Bowie
