gratitude-a-thon day 858: dearly beloved we are gathered here today to get through this thing called life

 

All 5’2 of him was brilliant.

When I hear “Let’s Go Crazy” (my all-time fave Prince song) I still do. He made boas and turbans and decadent army jackets and jewels downright manly . His name change was legend. His influence was epic.

Dead at 57. Of, conjecture at this point, the flu. I am starting to feel really old (and like I should have gotten the flu shot).

Prince was one of the great musicians and disruptors of my generation. Gratitude to all that he left behind. It was a purple reign. “And if the elevator tries to bring you down,  go crazy, punch a higher floor.”
