Anywhere, anytime, you always are supposed to be what is expected of you to be. You are supposed to be a competitor. You are supposed to stay fit. You are supposed to dream about luxury cars. You are supposed to organize your life around your kids. You are supposed to be funny at parties. You are supposed to be reasonable, but supposed to look at those not being so.

This pressure is a nightmare. It destroys, by averaging things. It is so hard to resist to. Fortunately, some inspiring artists are leading the way. David Bowie was a fantastic example of such integrity: always seeking, always experimenting, always innovating, regardless of the critics. Thank you so much Mr Bowie. You will be greatly missed.

I would love to live inside your mind for a day. I'd probably be overwhelmed, but I'd treasure every moment. You are so talented and I love each and every one of your images. I think I can even distinguish your photos now. Always a surprise and stroke of excellence. Kudos...

Huge congrats! I'm not that up on Bowie, but Jeff was looking over my shoulder when I went through the challenge -- and he recognized all the pieces! I do love the can... :)
