Sometimes It Snows In April - - pt 2

Today is 21 June 2016. It's been 2 months to the day since Prince passed on.

I've chosen today with lighting 2 purple candles in his honor.

i've been reading the many post of sorrow and sadness from the many orgers. there are also many words of appreciation of the memories of joy, adulation and appreciation of the musical, visual, creative, inspirational and wonderous works Prince sent out and left to us all.

Yes i still miss him very much.

Perhaps all has been said by many who maybe feel there is nothing left to say. however seems there are many words left in the mindset of those who still think of him daily as do eye

Prince was a great imo

his courage was that of a giant

he believed in his talent

then i admired the drive in which

he pursude his dream (s)

the natural physical beauty of his face

and the well framed body bypassed his ego

yes he had flaws,

but then all diamons have flaws

as do we all

Related image

yet the man did not

let his flaws

stand in the way on his

road to reaching goals

and successes.

I miss his display of courage

the most.

he was/is my beautiful beautiful giant.

i thank the great creator of all

good for sending Prince Rogers Nelson

into a large part of my world

of creative musical & visual entertainment

from 1978 - 2016

yes

Two months and I still tear up and get a knot in my stomach when I randomly read his name in a news article, or see his music in a store display. The heartache feels fresh all over again. It's a lovely evening in MN so I decided to mark the day by taking a drive in the country while I listened to the Parade CD. The sparkling lakes and lush greenery helped me get thru that last song, the first time I've been able to hear "Sometimes It Snows In April" all the way thru. The sky turned a vivid pinkish-orange as the sunset. It was so incredibly beautiful that I didn't feel quite as sad as I was afraid i would. Thank you Prince for putting so much color into our lives while you were here. I still sometimes don't know how we will get along without him, but I guess we have to.

I also bought myself a cool Prince poster yesterday to make me feel better about today smile

it's been kind of strange for me in that i still find myself when i'm out taking care of bizniz i still find myself looking for the color of purple as i drive. so i've found travel routes outside of the main throroughfare while travleing to my destination. there's this park that i pass and it has the most beautiful trees,

it's called a jacarandas tree. seems that color is soothing my sorrow and i'm all giving thanks 2 c the color in the trees. i guess the song 'purple rain' has been embeded in my psyche. so i'm finding healing out on my ventures in the beauty of this colorific royal hue.

This morning my 5 yr old said to me,
"Mom I had a dream about Prince last night."
"That was nice. What happen in your dream?"
"You were driving and Prince was in the other seat in the front. I sat in the back. We drove to Stop & Shop and just grooved to his music."
"Did he say anything?"
"Nope."
"Well that sounds like a nice dream."
"It was." He pauses and then says. "Mom, I think he's OK, so don't be sad anymore."
I just cried and hugged my son.

That is really beautiful, thank U for posting free2bfreeda. hug Like most of U guys I have good and bad days. Yesterday was a good day. I had errands to run and I was blasting a playlist in my car, it was rush hour and traffic was going next to no where. I was listening to Paisley Park when the car next to me beeped and the guy inside waved to get my attention, beamed a huge smile and flashed the "Be Wild" sign and started singing and dancing along. (As much as U can dance while behind the wheel anyway.) As he moved slowly along ahead of me in the next lane I could see him moving around and having a good time. Next song was Baby I'm A Star, I had my windows down and so did this car with 3 women and 1 man. They stopped playing their radio and asked me to turn mine up. I did and we had an impromtu jam session on the highway in bumper to bumper traffic. I've never been so happy to be stuck in traffic. The kicker was 1 of the women started yelling out "Baby Ur in the stars... NOW!!!" instead of the original line, the gentleman in the car looked up at the sky started laughing and said something to the effect of "Thank U man for times like these! U always da man!". We all started laughing. Traffic started moving along shortly after that but when I looked around and in my rearview mirror ppl were smiling and mouthing the words. A couple of cars just started clapping. I've never had such a surreal experience, it really left me speachless. I know it sounds crazy and I agree. I know I'll have that memory forever and I'm sure the others involved will too. Sorry if that was off topic, for as happy as yesterday was today is a rough one just wanted to get that out. broken cry

I didn't watch that trainwreck either but I still couldn't completely avoid it. Every time I tried to watch the news the hag was front and center. disbelief

I'll see how it goes. I may end up turning the channel. sad

I figure this belongs on this thread... I have two posters of Prince which have been hanging on my wall for years; I took them down a month ago because it made me cry to look at them and I thought perhaps it was time to replace them with something else... Today, I hung them back up where they belong...and there they will stay.

You can walk a mile in my shoes. But you can't dance a step in my feet.

I have about a dozen posters of him but only one on the wall. It's the 3121 poster with his back turned and his profile. It's on the wall with a group of posters of Sade, WAR, Kool And The Gang, etc. so I never took it down. I actually talked to it a few times after he passed, saying prayers for him, that sort of thing. sad hmm disbelief

Next song was Baby I'm A Star, I had my windows down and so did this car with 3 women and 1 man. They stopped playing their radio and asked me to turn mine up. I did and we had an impromtu jam session on the highway in bumper to bumper traffic. I've never been so happy to be stuck in traffic. The kicker was 1 of the women started yelling out "Baby Ur in the stars... NOW!!!" instead of the original line, the gentleman in the car looked up at the sky started laughing and said something to the effect of "Thank U man for times like these! U always da man!". We all started laughing. Traffic started moving along shortly after that but when I looked around and in my rearview mirror ppl were smiling and mouthing the words. A couple of cars just started clapping. I've never had such a surreal experience, it really left me speachless. I know it sounds crazy and I agree. I know I'll have that memory forever and I'm sure the others involved will too. Sorry if that was off topic, for as happy as yesterday was today is a rough one just wanted to get that out. broken cry

Ahhhh this is so cool! What a great story. Prince would absolutely love that, you just know he would!!!

Soooo,,,today has been a rough one for me. I took a couple days off just to get some things done around my house, but instead I've been weeping all morning. I was just fine yesterday, but it hit me smack dab in my face the moment I woke up, mourning.

I started looking around the web to see if I can find some logical reason why my ass is crying and hurting over someone I never met. It's just pissing me off. Found a couple of good articles, but something drew me to my own diary. I'm surprised I still have it. Normally, I write how I feel and then throw it away, but for some reason, I still had my '96-'98 diary. This is during the time I reached adulthood, had my own band, my own goals for the Music Business. It is also the time I shed my childlike fanhood of Prince. If you don't mind, may I share an entry from 7-1-1998:

"Oh, how could I forget. I went over to [my friend's] place for dinner, and I go to see the latest video by The Artist, "The One." I liked it a lot. I miss him very much, but I'm not as attached to him the way I used to be. Back in the day, I would have been totally pissed and outright mad for not being able to tape it. In a sense, my feelings for him have moved on to another level--one that looks beyond the material possessions and into the inhabitance of my soul. Prince is a part of me. Nothing can change that except God, and I would hope He doesn't. I can't explain how I feel for the Artist. I think it's more real now than ever before. And yes, the video was beautiful."

I guess God honored my prayer (for those of you who believe in that sort of thing).

Stay strong...

Welcome home class. We've come a long way. - RIP Prince

So why'd I start bawling when I heard "I Wanna Be Your Lover" on the radio? They played the entire song too, they never do that. I've been listenting to Prince music this whole time on my own, granted I haven't played that particular album since, I've listened to the radio since, I''ve heard that song since on the radio and sang happily along but today tears. I've been perfectly fine these past few day, okay with the exception of yesterday at that "last photograph" when I honestly looked at it and didn't skim it and move on, I cried a bit, then I was fine, until this morning. Truthfully, I kind of knew I'd be like this for a long time, long periods of being perfectly fine, then some random thing would bring tears.

I haven't "moved on". I doubt I ever will.

I greedily and guilty watch and re-watch every official video, every unofficial recorded whatever, every live performance, every interview, every prank, every rehearsal, anything and everything YouTube suddenly has to offer.

I hope he understands my obsession with not losing him entirely.

I sing (I think I have an awful voice, but I sing loud anyway), I cry, I laugh, I love, I long, and I remember.

I'm an emotional mess sometimes and sometimes I'm not.

I grieve and mourn, but mostly I remember. I just remember.

today i said to myself, :i'm not logging in to prince.org, i've got to move on". then i find myself thinking about him.

i remember in the past (before he passed on) wondering and hoping that he'd see my post and read my opinions on various topics and threads.

can you believe that many times i thought i felt his presence? i mean sometimes i'd imagine his just stopping by the org to read all our post.

yes, i even dreamed about Prince over the years. not often and never sexual in content. dreams like meeting him, he'd invite me to ride down highway 1 on the cali coast and we'd just talk about mundane topics.

this site bonded many of us orgers together in his name. i guess i'm hooked. but i've just got to let go and let his spirit travel on.

I really still miss him being alive on this earth in my/our space in time, i never really knew how much until this moment.

Thought I'd post this here.

I was wondering today if people have stopped crying.

I'm not sobbing like I was for the first 6 weeks but I still cry and just can't believe this all when I really think about it.

a few of you mentioned something really important that I've been thinking about too. I feel guilty because I'm not "letting him go". I have apologized to him many times for this. I want to do what he wants but I guess I'm frikkin selfish.

I got the idea that he wants us to let him go from one of the posts here, a video of a psychic or medium that seemed extremely accurate. I love whad she said, that he is happier where he is...she also said that he hasn't had "that kind of love" in a long long time, which made me sad. But she also said he wants us to let him go.

Did you all get the idea of "letting him go" from that video, or somewhere else?

the idea of "letting him go," is from listening to adults i was around while growing up. i was taught that the grieving process should not extend too long because the spirit/soul of the person that has passed on out of this realm lingers because they want to comfort those in sorrow. in doing so it slows down the progression and the new path that they are on.

it's so difficult to let go, but necessary (or so it's been said).

Dearest Org
I have never mourn for an artist as I have for Mr. Nelson. Becoming a fan of his music at age 31. I wrote this man a letter (fam much?) as if I was a school girl ("OH PRINNNNCCCE!" lol ) (fam much?!) Fast forward to April 21st 2016...I am now 62 years experienced. My soulmate of 32 years died on my mom's birthday last year & two Songwriters (Glenn Frey & Prince Rogers Nelson) whom helped me love my beloved through his bitterness, passed months within each other. Life is what it is. Death is an appointment we all have. I refuse to allow sorrow take my recall of the beauty in the music created by these gifted men, especially Prince's music. No disrespect to Mr. Frey nor to The Eagles. I choose to move forward no matter how much the sum of five months of agony of not knowing if my beloved "LemonDrop" was alive or part of eternity. (I left him in 2010 but we remained good friends.). There is no doubt I will cry from time to time. And Lord God Jesus help me! When Prince's music & falsetto catches me by surprise...and I recall "He too has died." This age & white hair will also remember with gratefulness "I witness this time of great talent & what a ride it was!" woot!

It still swells up & comes out of my eyes, especially when I get to thinking I'm over it. About an hour ago I was catching up on some magazines I've been ignoring. Read the Chris Rock interview in an issue of Essence that's a few months old. He mentions how he tries to stay current with the music he listens to so he can relate to his teen daughters, & that they refer to his Prince tracks as "daddy music". THAT made me tear up falloff I had Future Soul Song playing at the time, so it just gutted me for a second. & that's not the only time today that it hit me. I dunno man, this process is so long. I feel like there won't be a time when I don't mourn him on some level. I need enjoyment of him to kick in again, I fucking NEED that. Thank God for 20TEN - somehow I'm able to listen to that & mostly just enjoy it. There are times I skip Future Soul Song & Walk In Sand because they hit me too deep, but it's what I've been able to enjoy lately. I want the whole catalogue back in my life, but I'm still not ready. Maybe I need to just cry through it all, I dunno. I don't really have time to do that right now confused fuck sad

Just tried opening up and discussing what Prince's music meant to me and trying to understand why the loss of someone I never met personally has hit me so hard with someone I've known for years... The response was very negative and discouraging. She seemed to be under the impression that Prince was a long-time drug user (abuser) and gave me a side-eye when I tried to discuss the fact that for the majority of Prince's life he was known to be anti-drugs and that something must have driven him to start taking prescription pain killers in the first place. She said yeah, Fentanyl was the cause of his passing but he was on other drugs. I stated again that there had to be a reason for Prince taking painkillers in the first place. Again, the old-fashioned look as if I was ignorant or naive. I knew better but then I stated that it must be in recent years that the addiction took hold, bringing up the example of the last performance I saw in 2014. All she said was: "Yeah, but you know he was on drugs then, too, don't you?" I gave up. I should have known better than to discuss Prince with someone who doesn't "get it." It still breaks my heart though that now he is thought of as "oh, yeah, that drug addict." sad The sum of one's life isn't some of it's parts. BTW this is someone in the health field. sigh

Yeah, it's been a 'relapse' day for me...listening to the last two year's of his music has got me feelin' some kinda way. The tone seems different from the past 10 years. The beauty of him combining hard rock with funk was so beautiful to hear, almost like there was finally...."balance." Yeah, that's the only way I can describe it. Anyway, I guess the 'ebb and flow' will last for quite a while. I'm so grateful to be able to dialogue with you all cuz there is NOBODY in my circle of influence I can talk to about this....especially after 2.5 months AND not knowing him AND not being able to explain the way he passed OR be able to help others understand how he influenced my life in ways that are really tangible. You're definitely not alone, purplethunder3121.

I'm so grateful to be able to dialogue with you all cuz there is NOBODY in my circle of influence I can talk to about this....especially after 2.5 months AND not knowing him AND not being able to explain the way he passed OR be able to help others understand how he influenced my life in ways that are really tangible. You're definitely not alone, purplethunder3121.

Neither are you, roxy831! Trying to verbalize what Prince's music meant to my life and got me through so many hard knock AND good times was difficult. And I feel bad that I was unable to make someone understand (or even be open to understanding) what that entailed. To echo your words, Prince brought BALANCE into my life when I most needed it. I totally "get" where you are coming from. :hugs:

Just tried opening up and discussing what Prince's music meant to me and trying to understand why the loss of someone I never met personally has hit me so hard with someone I've known for years... The response was very negative and discouraging. She seemed to be under the impression that Prince was a long-time drug user (abuser) and gave me a side-eye when I tried to discuss the fact that for the majority of Prince's life he was known to be anti-drugs and that something must have driven him to start taking prescription pain killers in the first place. She said yeah, Fentanyl was the cause of his passing but he was on other drugs. I stated again that there had to be a reason for Prince taking painkillers in the first place. Again, the old-fashioned look as if I was ignorant or naive. I knew better but then I stated that it must be in recent years that the addiction took hold, bringing up the example of the last performance I saw in 2014. All she said was: "Yeah, but you know he was on drugs then, too, don't you?" I gave up. I should have known better than to discuss Prince with someone who doesn't "get it." It still breaks my heart though that now he is thought of as "oh, yeah, that drug addict." sad The sum of one's life isn't some of it's parts. BTW this is someone in the health field. sigh

there are those that are attracted to the cyber gossip cites along with those that embrace the raggish gossip magazines.

thus the embellishing gossip mongers with no mind of their own. obviously she was never n 2 Prince.

oh well, that's her loss.

Speaking of "getting" Prince and his music, I am so happy to see so many young people discovering and appreciating Prince's music for the first time. I don't think my son would have understood what Prince's music meant to my life (despite having heard it many times as he grew up) if we hadn't shared going to many Prince concerts together, including the last two we went to in 2014. After those, he told me, "Mom, thanks for taking me to see Prince. That was the best concert I've ever been to." This, after having seen Prince before... He "gets" it. wink

Just heard this again for the first time in a long time...and although the song made me cry the last time I heard it, today I find it comforting and life-affirming. Here are the lyrics to "Don't Talk To Strangers":

Little darling
Gotta go now
Don't know when I'll be coming back
Got my future
All planned out
Got my bags packed
Things don't always turn out right
That's just the way it goes
Before I leave u there's just a few things u should know

Don't talk 2 strangers
Don't forget to say your prayers at night
Remember god he made u
And one day he'll make everything alright
Don't cross on yellow
U always got to wait 4 a green light
Remember god he made u
One day he'll make everything alright

Alright

Little darling
Gotta go now
Don't worry u'll be just fine
When it comes 2 good luck
I just know, I just know u'll always be the first in line
Nobody'll ever love u as much as I do
That doesn't mean other people won't love u 2
Don't talk 2 strangers
Don't forget 2 say your prayers at night
Remember god he made u
And one day he'll make everything alright
Don't cross on yellow
U always got to wait 4 a green light
Remember god he made u
And one day he'll make things alright

Well, fuck it. That seals the deal. I deliberately didn't listen to Prince except sporadically for the past few months since he passed on to a better existence. But, today was the day I was supposed to come back... When I went to Walgreen's after having that distressing conversation I alluded to earlier, the first song that played on the loudspeakers was "When Doves Cry." I started singing in the store...and haven't stopped. Just now when I played "I Hate U" I heard the song and FELT it like I did I first heard it in the '90s...and that is wonderful... yes And this--at that moment in the '90s--was after what I thought was the biggest heart break of my life! LMAO

I even told the woman I spoke to about the song that made me come back to Princeland after years of being out of touch with the music world... I heard "Better With Time" on a local radio station...and I said to myself, "Wow, is that Prince?!! Is he still making new music after all this time?!!" Well, that was it... I "rediscovered" Prince. Not only my old favorites but a shitload of new music. I was hooked once again. I know how the "newbies" feel. Ironically, I only found out a couple of years ago that my sister was a big Prince fan back in the day...and went to the Musicology tour, which I wasn't even aware of at the time. Yeah, that's how out of the mix I was! lol

I do feelya.

After Emancipation and M & P losing the baby, I went through a really difficult divorce and lost touch except for whatever I caught on TV or radio until recently so I'm discovering so many music, videos, pictures, stories, interviews.

It's like when I was a fan when I was young. The thrilling excitement is still there. But I'm older now and appreciate it way more now.

Does anyone else think he sounds like he wrote this for a child? It almost sounds like father-to-child advice. My understanding is that he wrote and recorded it in 1992, but he could have still written it from a fatherly perspective maybe thinking about children he might have in the future. Beautiful lyrics! Thoughts?

Just tried opening up and discussing what Prince's music meant to me and trying to understand why the loss of someone I never met personally has hit me so hard with someone I've known for years... The response was very negative and discouraging. She seemed to be under the impression that Prince was a long-time drug user (abuser) and gave me a side-eye when I tried to discuss the fact that for the majority of Prince's life he was known to be anti-drugs and that something must have driven him to start taking prescription pain killers in the first place. She said yeah, Fentanyl was the cause of his passing but he was on other drugs. I stated again that there had to be a reason for Prince taking painkillers in the first place. Again, the old-fashioned look as if I was ignorant or naive. I knew better but then I stated that it must be in recent years that the addiction took hold, bringing up the example of the last performance I saw in 2014. All she said was: "Yeah, but you know he was on drugs then, too, don't you?" I gave up. I should have known better than to discuss Prince with someone who doesn't "get it." It still breaks my heart though that now he is thought of as "oh, yeah, that drug addict." sad The sum of one's life isn't some of it's parts. BTW this is someone in the health field. sigh

People are fucking DUMB. Anyone with any sense KNOWS damn well that dude was not some dopehead. I don't know how this shit got hold of him, but I know it had to be fairly recent. Fuck anyone who thinks otherwise. hug



Thank you. That sums it up nicely.

I have stopped talking to outsiders about Prince because I'm at the point where if they say something ignorant they're gonna get their feelings hurt. That includes family unfortunately.

Prince, in you I found a kindred spirit...Rest In Paradise.

Thanks for keeping this thread alive. I guess it's like any bereavement, the odd moments of sudden teariness, memories, wanting to believe it's not happened. I can't believe that the passing of someone I never met can have such an impact on me. The soundtrack to my life, falling silent.

Its been three months now....I'm still not over it. I too have quit talking to people in my immidiate circle. They all think I need to get a grip. Oh I have a grip alright! I have a grip on my love and admiration that I had/have for Prince. Just because they don't get it, doesn't mean squat. I summed it up on my twitter like this; 3mos still snowing...some days gently falling, some days a blizzard.
I still can't sing Purple Rain. I can get through most of Lets Go Crazy, and all of my fav, Lets Pretend We're Married!
Lets celebrate him every single day!

we all really loved Prince, didn't we! he was courageous, he was a musical genius, he was an intelligent, beautiful looking uni+masculine man and a freethinking creative master maestro.

he was a harbinger of a new generation of musical fusion in sound, sight and sexual freedom(s).

imo 'baby i'm a star' would fit the bill better. because Prince proved that he fit the bill star

This year really is one of the worst ever in my life... Just found out someone else I know has terminal cancer and is on her way out of this life... sad



I'm so sorry to hear that... hug This year sucks. My best friend had a stroke last week and is in a nursing home. She's only in her early fifties. sad


I'm sorry I came back to this thread so late, Babynoz. Thank you for the condolences and I am really sorry to hear about your best friend. sad To be put in that position so young is devastating. I hope and pray that she can recover some of her former self. I really can empathiise with you. My best friend died coming on a year ago... Super hugs and best wishes to you and your loved ones. hug

You can walk a mile in my shoes. But you can't dance a step in my feet.

From where/for what purpose was the photo taken? Oh my goodness, he is so gorgeous! It looks fairly recent, like within the last 10 years.

I'm sorry, I know. I looked at Prince pics for 14 hours Monday & that ended up as very bad for me. It's so difficult for a lot of us.
I found the poster and posted to answer the question.

Reading what everyone wrote here plus boriqua's beautiful words to put "peace be unto all who love you, Mr. Nelson"...made me cry a bit again.
I still cry almost every day and as a "return" fam, it's because with each day I realize just a little more what a special person he was. He was sweet. I respect and admire this man for being so capable and such a caring friend to so many people who came into his life. There's so much more I could say...I just feel one of our very best has moved on and it's hard, especially with the way the world can be sometimes.
Not very many selfless people anymore. But here on the org I do find the best.

The Minneapolis Star Tribune is reporting that the charitable donations of Prince have enabled children in Afghanistan to have a scouting program, most saliently girls, one of whom said in the article that without literacy skills she is akin to cattle. God bless Prince.

I saw that article too. His legacy is more than just musical. He touched the lives of so many people.

I've done a search but didn't find anything, and I didn't want to start a new thread:

Are there definitive, official, published lyrics from this song? Because I've always thought that the word "passed" works on more levels than "past." Any ideas or knowledge about this? Thanks it's been on my mind a lot, especially lately of course.

Prince finally appeared to me in a dream this morning for the first time. In the dream, people were getting ready to attend what I thought was his concert; they were associated with him in some kind of way. I went to the deck outside where people had set up a guest book on a pedestal to sign. Then I realized they were getting dressed to go to a memorial and not a concert. I refused to sign the book and didn't get ready for the memorial. Everyone left and I re-entered the house, feeling a weight of sadness on my chest. I was alone in the living room and it was growing dark outside. I turned around and there was Prince staring at me through a window with a piercing look in his green eyes. I nearly jumped out of my skin and ran to look out on the deck. But, when I got outside no one was there. Prince had vanished as quickly as he had come...
