Heart: Shattered

So, I began 2016 with a rather ambivalent post. 2015 ended on a low note, 2016 started the same…

I’ve been playing Bowie pretty much constantly since.

I was at the day job, so today was a late news check in day for me. The FIRST thing I see?

Alan Rickman has died.

I’ll give vague credit for this stunning illustration to Laura Aleman Striplin’s tattoo artist (whose name I forgot 😕).
