When your heart is full of love, you’re nine feet tall

Prince died today. What is happening with this odd year of 2016? David Bowie, Prince, Maurice White, Merle Haggard. Meanwhile, Donald Trump will outlive all of us.

A coworker stopped by my office and gave me the news. She was close to tears. She said, “He was my childhood!” Well, he was my adulthood. (Young adulthood.)

Prince Rogers Nelson was so full of life and talent. How is it that his voice has suddenly fallen silent?

I guess I can finally catch up with all of his albums, now that he won’t be recording a new one every other week.

Rest in peace, Prince, or whatever name or typographical squiggle you prefer. You said it best:

Dearly beloved
We are gathered here today
To get through this thing called life
