This morning, in the quiet of my house after my kids went to school, I lit the candle my fellow Prince fan bought me this past Christmas and listened to the one
song my heart longed to hear...

Perfectly captured my experience and sentiment. Thank U.

It still hurts, kinda like losing a family member. I've said it a year ago: his music was like a friend to me when I was a teenager when I didn't have any friends. I was consciously introverted, not big on having friends, really. But there were times when I felt down, lonely, broken-hearted, and there was always a Prince song that expressed my moods and feelings. New Prince music was something to look forward to when it was announced and now, even though new music is still released, it won't be the same because it's not new music put out from the Paisley fields in Minnesota. Any "new" music we're given won't actually be new, but works pulled from storage, packaged, and sold as new. There won't be anymore concert announcements. No cryptic tweets from the man himself anymore.

The world lost something huge one year ago today, and after a year it still feels like a family member was taken from us. That something taken away left a hole that can't be filled again.

Missing you so much Prince. The tears still flows even a year later. You've touched my soul so profoundly. You were there in my childhood to take the tears away.

Sent as my solace. Every album bought, posters lining my walls as the music flowed from my tiny tape recorder, a year later from my boom box, the year after that from my CD player. Hanging over the side of my bed, my imagination running away with you in the music, taking away the focus of the chaos all around me.

Thank you for being there. You touched me so profoundly that you were still there in my adult life with the beautiful memories embedded in my soul. It's no wonder you are still here a year later as the music flows from my IPad, as the tears still flows from my eyes.

Throughout my awkward teens, when it felt like I was all alone, too weird and important to no one, there was always Prince. And it was enough. ❀️

Keep a fire burning in your eye
Pay attention to the open sky
You never know what will be coming down
I don't remember losing track of you
You were always dancing in and out of view
I must have thought you'd always be around
Always keeping things real by playing the clown
Now you're nowhere to be found

I don't know what happens when people die
Can't seem to grasp it as hard as I try
It's like a song I can hear playing right in my ear
That I can't sing
I can't help listening
And I can't help feeling stupid standing 'round
Crying as they ease you down
'Cause I know that you'd rather we were dancing
Dancing our sorrow away
(Right on dancing)
No matter what fate chooses to play
(There's nothing you can do about it anyway)

Just do the steps that you've been shown
By everyone you've ever known
Until the dance becomes your very own
No matter how close to yours
Another's steps have grown
In the end there is one dance you'll do alone

Keep a fire for the human race
Let your prayers go drifting into space
You never know what will be coming down
Perhaps a better world is drawing near
And just as easily it could all disappear
Along with whatever meaning you might have found
Don't let the uncertainty turn you around
(The world keeps turning around and around)
Go on and make a joyful sound

A song by Jackson Browne (For a dancer) that I love the words to & get great comfort from them. Hope some of you do too

Sometimes I just forget how much his music means to me and how great he really was. I get wrapped up in day to day things and don't take as much time to listen to the music like I did when I was growing up. I had far fewer musical options, and would play albums and singles over and over again. That's why those are my favorite albums still. Because I knew them down to the last note. So many Prince albums that I just immersed myself in when they came out.

.

Last night I had just finished a long article on his death and the 30th year anniversary of SOTT and i had been listening to SOTT for weeks. And it really just hit me again after so long how great it really fucking is. Like I remember how I used to listen to music and why I love it in the first place.

.

So after it was finished I just went to my computer and let it choose a random playlist of Prince tunes, enough for 1 CD. I didn't look at the tracklisting, i just normalized the volumes and burned it. Then took it back to my lounger, turned out all the lights except for my dim blue ones to give it a nice glow, and put the CD on my Bose and layed back and just listened to it. 40 years of random Prince, different eras, different styles, throwaway tracks and masterpieces. And it was all just mesmerizing.

.

(There'll Never B) Another Like Him. He was so fucking right about that.

When I was a freshman in college who stayed to myself and had no one to talk to, trying to find out who I was and what I wanted out of life I had Prince. He helped me be more fearless and love everything about myself. He encouraged me to never stop dreaming. He pushed my creativity. He changed my way of thinking and I truly thank him for that and I thank God for putting me on this Earth during his era. I remember this time last year was really hard. But I'm taking this day and making it positive from this year forward. This is my day of new beginnings. I may shed a few tears but that's okay, I'll make sure I throw some happy tears in with the sad. Thank you Prince for everything. I love you and always will!

Prince, you changed my world in a most profound way when I first saw you on MTV back in the day singing 1999 and Little Red Corvette. You were like noone who had come before you. I waited with the TV constantly on MTV in the background, going about my daily teenage stuff until the rotation of videos came back to you. There weren't too many vids back then so it never took long to get back to you. Then I would sitwatching, mesmerized again by your brilliance. I knew that you were the 'One'. I recognized the musicianship and brilliance that you possessed. You taught me about 'real music by real musicians' throughout the years. You taught me about 'love 4 one another'. You taught me to be true to who I was regardless of what others thought. It's been one year since my life was profoundly changed again. One year knowing that you haven't been there, sharing you music and love of life with the rest of us. I miss you, friend. There is an empty spot in my soul that will only be filled again when we meet outside of this realm. Until then, I will enjoy what you have left behind for us all- the music. I wish you heaven, friend.

A death is not the extinguishing of a light,
but the putting out of the lamp
because the dawn has come.

I can honestly say that his death has affected me profoundly. A year ago, it seemed like time stood still.

Prince, thanks so much for what you gave to me personally through your artistry and music. You never stopped being an iconoclast and more than anything, you gave so much to the world to remember you by.
