ONE YEAR AGO TODAY

I can’t believe how fast time flies.

A year ago we received the news of Prince passing.

He was found in Paisley Park, lifeless.

Many theories were presented, many half truths, many rumors.

No matter the reason, a huge musical giant, an amazing musician, a masterful influence was gone.

He crossed his ‘Purple Bridge”.

And left his many fans behind!

From a Facebook Member, Josie Fletcher … had to share! 
Prince isn’t dead … he just hopped on his “Little Red Corvette” … with his “Raspberry Beret” … drove off through the “Purple Rain“, over “Graffiti Bridge” … under the “Cherry Moon“, partying like it’s “1999” … because this is what happens “When Doves Cry“!!

A dear blogger friend taught me this concept.

~IN HER OWN WORDS~

IOTD” is image of the day, a concept I came up with. I teach visual meditative therapy – or in easy terms – a mini mental holiday. For some people it is very difficult for them to get their image right. I post an image a day for people to use in their mini mental vacay. Some are serious, some are silly, and some are just beautiful!”

PRINCE

We ALL are connected through MUSIC!!

American musician Prince achieved wide fame in the 1980s with ‘1999‘ and ‘Purple Rain,’ the latter album also serving as the soundtrack for the popular film of the same name. Later Prince albums included ‘Sign ‘O’ the Times,’ ‘Diamonds and Pearls‘ and ‘Musicology.’

PBord

 Synopsis
Prince was born Prince Rogers Nelson on June 7, 1958, in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Prince’s early music career saw the release of Prince, Dirty Mind and Controversy – all of which created controversy due to their fusion of religious and sexual themes. He then released the albums 1999 and Purple Rain, cementing his superstar status with No. 1 hits like “When Doves Cry” and “Let’s Go Crazy.”

A seven-time Grammy winner, Prince had a prodigious output that included later albums like Diamonds and Pearls, The Gold Experience and Musicology.

He died on April 21, 2016.

From a dear Facebook Friend

My Take …

This artist did a lot (silently) for charity ….
He fought the Record Company and won ….
He was loved by many ….
His hometown loved him ….
Helped many artists ….
Helped many young people ….
Amazing Talent ….
…. HE wanted to be private ….
So …. for TMZ, tabloids …. I don’t care what drugs he was taking.

And don’t speculate  ….

ALLOW HIM his privacy ….

Plenty of normal people die.

They have been eating themselves to death every day, take prescription drugs for pain and sleep.

Many smoke themselves to death.

Many just lay around and abuse their body.  We don’t report on them ….
Leave Prince alone.

Rest In Peace, Prince.

Thank you for the great music …. and so much more.

November 12, 1999 …. it’s been 15 years!!


~~November 12, 2011~~

I moved to Florida on November 3, 1999 – from Puerto Rico. I left behind elderly parents who I had been taking care of. My new job started on November 9, 1999 at the Jacksonville Veterans Administration Clinic in Florida.

On November 12, I received the news that my Mom had passed on after a long, chronic illness. She was 89 and had been bedridden for 10 years.

Hope you are resting in peace.

An app on my phone just reminded me it was today, 15 years ago.

MomHH

To those who have a mother, treasure her with all the love you can muster. Once she’s gone, all you have is her eternal love, the lessons she taught you and the memories in your heart which will never be erased!
