proverbs31v25:

Let thy goodness, like a fetter, 
	bind my wandering heart to thee. 
	Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it, 
	prone to leave the God I love; 
	here's my heart, O take and seal it, 
	seal it for thy courts above.

Iman attended some of David’s concerts in the late 1980’s, but they were not properly introduced until October 1990 at a dinner held by their mutual hairdresser, Teddy Antolin,  

Bowie fell in love instantly.  

He was later quoted in an interview saying “I was naming the children the night we met … it was absolutely immediate.” But not so for Iman. “I did not want to get involved with a rock star. No way. It is not a sane thing to do, but David changed my mind. He wooed me.”

Not long after their first meeting, Iman had to travel to Paris.  She arrived to a hotel room filled with her favorite flower (gardenias) and a card from David.  

When she returned to Los Angeles, David was there waiting for her at the airport. Iman was sold. In an interview with NyMag Iman recalled, “His actions spoke louder [than words]. […] the doors open to the plane, and I come out and I see all these people taking a picture of somebody. And he was standing there, flowers in hand, no security. That was when I knew. He didn’t care if anyone saw.”

Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts. There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature, the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after winter.
