it took THIS long...

... but I'm FINALLY back to listening to him pretty freely biggrin I know some of you will think "WGAF??" lol but I know there are others here who felt the same way - it was just too painful, had to let it dull a bit. Treated it like an assignment, just let the iPod run, & I'm just glad to be able to hear him again w/o feeling too sad (most of the time). Still avoiding some diffucult songs, but the bulk of the catalogue is back in rotation. I missed his voice too much, & I'll miss him forever... square

heart prince I never met you, but I LOVE you & I will forever!! Thank you for being YOU - my little Princey, the best to EVER do it prince heart

Everybody processes these kinds of things differently. I never stopped listening to his music and only welled up once or twice since, the last time being when I played the Piano/Mic performance of Purple Rain and it touched me more profoundly than it normally did.

But on the whole, his music still does to me what it did all these 34 years; it makes me utterly, utterly happy.

Glad you are back to playing him again.

Totally with you CS. for me it wasn't that long ago either. AND it was affecting my enjoyment of all music, old and new, just like the spark had gone out.

But now, I am full on. Been blasting Janelle's Make Me Feel all this weekend not that that reminds me of Prince or anything eek lol

Just somewhere in the middle,
Not too good and not too bad.

On the exact same time line as you. Will miss him everyday of my life I'm certain.

I feel u... I gravitated towards his music when he left us. Purple Rain was the last song I wanted to hear when he was with us... now it brings tears when I play it. Funny how that works.

Welcome back!
I think, near the two year mark, we're at the acceptance phase.
We've been through anger, disbelief, sorrow.
But there's no such thing as closure.
Welcome to "the org", laytonian… come bathe with me.

Yeah, what's that "we"?
I was off in 3 days myself.
Although you forgot "joy", in your sad list.
But I guess that's a private thing.

What, joy? The best is your first bursting in tears. Like, I just knew he's alive.
Believing is self-fulfilling, I guess that's why they call it faith.
Imagine your face if, and that's a theory, there is, in fact, eternity.
Like dope, this first flash of tears won't come back.
You gotta hang on to the souvenir.
They'll come back.
Tears go here.

I don't mind the song, but I sure hope Eternity doesn't start with "Lalala-la laaaaa, la-laa laaa".
I'd piss myself and ruin the solemnity of the moment on the spot.
Bah, nevermind, Saint-Peter surely has a mop.

It takes however long it takes. Can't still listen to "Sometimes it Snows in April " but someday I'll get there too. He made so much truly happy music. woot!
Good morning children...take a look out your window.
