In this episode I continue to celebrate the holiday season and writing and reading about everything Prince.
Words to describe him, “tireless, driven, obsessed, manic.” seem well trite and inadequate.
His longtime Road Manager said it best in his tribute to Prince published right after his death,
“But nobody was like Prince. Yes, the young Prince once practiced and dedicated himself to developing a skill set, but once his foundation was intact, the music, the ideas — both creative and promotional — flowed out of him like a raging river. There was no industry that was equipped to process and digest his ceaseless flow. Radio couldn’t keep up, record companies couldn’t market and promote fast enough, fans couldn’t re-focus fast enough. His songs were like a daily newspaper and he wanted them to be read while the news was fresh.“ By Alan Leeds

Dreams, Spirituality, Holiday Season
His conversion to Jehovah Witness in 2001 was just so Prince. And couldn’t Michael Jackson make it work. I think he would embrace the love of the season but not the commercialization.
The day he died a rainbow appeared over Paisley Park with lots of purple.
Although he moved from this limited life in that Paisley Park elevator, let’s take his advice, let’s not let that elevator bring us down…Let’s GO CRAZY celebrating life, love, and the joy of this season!
