Take My Hand Take My Whole Life Too

It's Elvis' birthday and David Bowie's, and Stephen Hawking's. That is, in my opinion, a hat trick of the evidence for the potential awesomeness of humanity.

What do these brothers have to teach us?

Elvis said, "Blue suede shoes."

Bowie said, "Turn and face the strange."

Stephen Hawking said, "Remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet."

My interpretation: if you want to be happy, retrain your gaze away from your navel, embrace the interesting edges of things, and wear whatever footwear feels right to ya.
