Computer Blue

Prince

Usually I struggle when naming a post, but I am simply blue…computer blue.  I am still in denial that Prince is no longer here with us.  How can this be?  I honestly feel like I have lost a close family member.  I don’t want to cheapen this post by going on and on about how I’m his biggest fan.  After being challenged by those who claim to be (in fact) his number 1 fans, I realized that there is no way to judge this and that I really don’t care. I’m probably unable to put into words just how this man has influenced my life.  I don’t really want to share every detail anyway because some just wouldn’t understand.  And that is fine with me.

I will say that Prince was my second love…my dad of course was my number 1 guy.  I fell in love at the tender age of 8.  It was his eyes and hair that caught my attention. The picture above is one of my favorites of him.  His eyes have always captivated me.  Deepness.  I have never been able to explain how I connected with Prince’s music.  There was something about HIS music, even that early in my life, that I just connected with.  As I got older and began to analyze and understand the meanings behind many of the songs, it became clearer that I would be a fan eternal.

I had originally planned to share my favorite songs, but after careful consideration, I probably won’t be able to do that for this post.  The more I thought about it, it was like trying to pick my favorite students from my teaching career.  There are those few that stole my heart, but I have genuine love for each and every student that I have taught.  That’s how I’m feeling about Prince’s music, each song has something special and unique about it.  I mean there are the party songs that just uplift and make everything better.  There are the love songs that make you still believe in love, the sad songs that let you know that you are not alone and that sometimes its okay to be sad, the socially relevant songs that spread truth and hopefully awaken you,  the spiritual songs that make you search deeper into yourself, and of course the naughty songs that make you…naughty.  Many songs for our many moods and attitudes.  That’s the true mark of a musical genius! Prince, although gone from this life, will be Forever in my Life💜
