I've been listening to a lot of David Bowie lately. Particularly stuff from his early 80s "Man Who Fell to Earth" phase. Looking back at the diversity of his discography over the years, you can't help but notice that he never ceases to reinvent himself. You get the feeling that he becomes interested in a certain genre or style and finds a way to make it his own. I am reminded of my own life and the tapestry of phases I went through... the obsessive-compulsive phase, the grunge phase, the goth phase, the Buddhist phase, the art phase, the work-aholic phase, and the phase of uncertainty that I find myself in now. Please post a description of some of the strange phases you might have gone through in your younger years. Maybe you did some crazy **** that you're not so proud of (like participating in a 70's disco transgendered roller derby or being a staffer for Mark Foley) but maybe that stuff made you who you are today. As Nietsch said... well, you know what he said. Anyway, I'd be glad to read about it.
