(UPDATED Jan 11th, 2016) As the World Falls Down on the 1st Anniversary of David Bowie's Passing?

David Bowie and the Tree of Life
California has lost one of its biggest icons after the ancient Pioneer Cabin Tree crashed to the forest floor in a fierce storm on the 1st anniversary of David Bowie's passing, January 10th(?).
UPDATE: January 11th, 2016
The original news site I got my information from was wrong about the date
The news source I got this tree story from stated the tree fell on the 10th of January, which would have been the anniversary of Bowie's passing, but another news source stated
""When the already mostly dead tree hit the ground on Sunday, it shattered and is now completely unrecognisable, said Jim Allday, a volunteer at Calaveras Big Trees State Park.
“It was majestic,” he said. “Now it’s basically a pile of rubble.”""

Apparently the tree fell on Sunday, January 8th, which still would have been on Bowie's birthday, and two days away from the day he passed away one year ago, so it is still symbolic of the Starman's life's work on the planet...maybe more so.

Coincidence?
The Pioneer Cabin Tree fell on January 10, 2017 in the Calaveras Big Trees State Park.
Giant, 1,000-year-old Pioneer Cabin Tree topples in Californian storm
"The giant sequoia, estimated to be more than 1,000 years old, proved a major attraction at the Calaveras Big Trees State Park.
It became known as the "tunnel tree" after the centre of the tree's trunk was removed 137 years ago and carved out to make a small arch for people and cars to pass through.
California and Nevada have been thrashed by storms for the past week, the ferocity finally uprooting the trunk.

""As the World Falls Down" is a song written by David Bowie in 1986 for the soundtrack of the film Labyrinth.
The song is the backdrop for an illusion which Jareth the Goblin King
(Bowie) builds around Sarah (Jennifer Connelly) through the use of an enchanted peach
The illusion is of a masquerade ball inside a bubble. 
Sarah is the only character in this scene without a mask, though Jareth removes his mask earlier in the scene."
"As The World Falls Down"

There's such a sad love
Deep in your eyes.
A kind of pale jewel
Open and closed
Within your eyes.
I'll place the sky
Within your eyes.

There's such a fooled heart
Beatin' so fast
In search of new dreams.
A love that will last
Within your heart.
I'll place the moon
Within your heart.

As the pain sweeps through,
Makes no sense for you.
Every thrill is gone.
Wasn't too much fun at all,
But I'll be there for you-ou-ou
As the world falls down.

Falling.
Falling down.
Falling in love.

I'll paint you mornings of gold.
I'll spin you Valentine evenings.
Though we're strangers 'til now,
We're choosing the path
Between the stars.
I'll leave my love
Between the stars.

As the pain sweeps through,
Makes no sense for you.
Every thrill is gone.
Wasn't too much fun at all,
But I'll be there for you-ou-ou
As the world falls down.

Falling
As the world falls down.
Falling
As the world falls down.
Falling.
Falling.
Falling.
Falling in love
As the world falls down.
Falling.
Falling.
Falling.
Falling.
Falling in love
As the world falls down.
Makes no sense at all.
Makes no sense to fall.
Falling
As the world falls down.
Falling.
Falling in love
As the world falls down.
Falling.
Falling
Falling in love
As the world falls down.

""Shiver my timbers" was most famously popularized by the archetypal pirate Long John Silver in Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island (1883)
Silver used the phrase seven times, as well as variations such as "shiver my sides", "shiver my soul" and "shake up your timbers"."
"and shiver me timbers"
""Shiver Me Timbers" was echoed by early to the mid 20th century cartoon character: 
"Well blow me down" was another phrase he uttered with regularity."
Let's hope this tree falling isn't a sign to batten down the hatches for the coming year;-) 
And I remember Grace Potter telling me and some other fans at the signing tent last Easter in Byron Bay that if Trump became president of the USA she was coming to live in Australia.

Chris and Elsa have a spare room for Grace, right guys?-)

UPDATE: January 15th, 2017
Peter Sarstedt passed away on January 8th, 2017, which was that same day that tall 1000 year old tree fell and Pete had a song called 'Tall Tree' as well.
Peter Sarstedt, singer songwriter of Where Do You Go To (My Lovely)? fame, dies aged 75
"British singer songwriter Peter Sarstedt, known for the 1969 chart topper Where Do You Go To (My Lovely)?, has died at the age of 75, the BBC reports, citing a statement from his family.
The song about a fictional girl named Marie-Claire, who rises from the back streets of Naples to join the European jet-set, spent four weeks at number one in the British charts in 1969 and won the Ivor Novello award for best song composition.
Sarstedt died after a six-year battle with Progressive Supranuclear Palsy, a rare neurological condition, the BBC reported.
"

Pete passed away in the Chinese 'Year of the Monkey', which is why I included the above single he recorded under the name Peter Lincoln.

I felt the collapse of that tree meant something but didn't have time to research it. Thanks for this post!

And thanks for trying to listen to coast to coast! The show went great.

I listened to the whole Coast to Coast show, even the first two hours with the guy talking about Russia and Trump and it was a good show, the whole four hours of it.
I had it going in the background while I did my housework.
Good luck with the book.
