Forever Purple

There are words, so many thoughts swimming around in my head but they won't release. 
Not now. 

RIP Prince Rogers Nelson

  1. Like most things of the 80s, I have only a dim awareness. But judging by the world's sad reaction to his passing and the accolades now flowing, I obviously need to go get myself acquainted.

    1. His being a musical genius aside, his dedication to the craft was epic.

      I had babies/young kids on the 80s and didn't listen to a lot of non Muppet themed music. Prince is one of a handful of artists who broke through the "wheels-on-the-bus" haze.

  2. Yeah, he's a big one for me.

    And he's exactly my age, so I'm also having lots of sands in the hour glass stuff from this. He was such a force of nature, and I suppose you expect forces of nature to go on forever.

    1. Dearly Beloved, we are gathered here today to get through this thing called life. ~Prince.

      A force, for sure.

      My older brother is 57 (58 in September)~so, yeah.

  3. There was something very "other worldly" about him. I admired his uniqueness and enjoyed his great beauty - inside and out.

    1. The "other worldly" aspect seems to be a general consensus.

  4. A friend in high school was obsessed, so he was an influence I was aware of, perhaps more than others. I am not much of a music person, but I was more affected by this than Bowie, and certainly have a stronger knowledge of his work.
    A sad day
