The Moon filmmaker returned to Twitter last week after taking a break from the micro-blogging site in the wake of the legendary singer’s passing from cancer, and has now reached out to his 266,000 followers to reassure them that “everything is good.”
On Saturday the director, 44, revealed that he would be easing himself back into the world of social media and tweeted a cartoon sketch of three hands clenched in the thumbs-up sign alongside the words “Everything is good.”
He captioned the image: “Hi all. Just wanted to thank you for the incredibly kind words & thoughts. I’ll be easing my way back into Twitter.”
When news broke that David had lost an 18-month secret battle with the disease on January 10, his only son announced he would be “offline for a while.”
A week later, Duncan returned to Twitter and shared a letter written to the “Fashion” singer by a palliative care doctor.
Whilst Duncan didn’t comment directly, he retweeted a link posted by the Marie Curie organization to a letter from Dr. Mark Taubert, who wrote about how Bowie’s private cancer battle helped him ease the concerns of a dying patient.
One section read: “At the beginning of that week I had a discussion with a hospital patient, facing the end of her life. We discussed your death and your music, and it got us talking about numerous weighty subjects, that are not always straightforward to discuss with someone facing their own demise. In fact, your story became a way for us to communicate very openly about death, something many doctors and nurses struggle to introduce as a topic of conversation.”
The letter was littered with references to the “Fame” singer’s lyrics and also included a number of thank yous to Bowie.
