PRINCE PASSED AWAY APRIL 21, 2016 - WE ALL MOURN HIS LOSS

There is no way to describe how we all feel. Most of us "only" knew Prince through his music, but that was more than enough for him to have had a profound effect on our lives. Seeing the outpouring of love and respect on social media, in the press, on public structures cast in purple glow, and by the legions of people who celebrated his life as he would want it to be -- by coming together and dancing all over the globe, has been so touching to us all at prince.org. This site has always been about the fans first, but obviously without the man, there would be no fans. We now honor the genius musician, the visionary, the icon, and most of all the human that was Prince, and offer our deepest shared sympathies. We knew and loved his music, and made it part of our lives, our soul, our being; that's the ultimate tribute, and as a result, he will live eternally. Prince, you will be forever in our life, forever in our hearts, forever on our stereos. wish u heaven.

Virtual Paisley Park Memorial Tour

Gigapixel Imaging, a company headquartered just down the road from Paisley Park, and counting Prince fans on their staff, has made a super-cool 'virtual tour' of the PP fence and paths, showing the entirety of the amazing memorial fans have created. It's like higher-res Google StreetView, where you can see all of the wonderful tributes people have left. Check it out -- it's so touching, and really helps "take you there". Big props to Gigapixel!

today i said to myself, :i'm not logging in to prince.org, i've got to move on". then i find myself thinking about him.


i remember in the past (before he passed on) wondering and hoping that he'd see my post and read my opinions on various topics and threads.


can you believe that many times i thought i felt his presence? i mean sometimes i'd imagine his just stopping by the org to read all our post.


yes, i even dreamed about Prince over the years. not often and never sexual in content. dreams like meeting him, he'd invite me to ride down highway 1 on the cali coast and we'd just talk about mundane topics.


this site bonded many of us orgers together in his name. i guess i'm hooked. but i've just got to let go and let his spirit travel on.


I really still miss him being alive on this earth in my/our space in time, i never really knew how much until this moment.

***********************


The new herald of dawn


Spoken in song


By a chorus of birds


Rising up when I thought


All faith was gone


Just when the sky


Seems at its darkest


And there are no stars


To be seen


Cars rumble by


But monotonous mumble


Can't mute or cancel


The beautiful music


The feathered choir


Awakens in me


The realization


Of a new day


Just beginning


And I am here


Alive and hopeful


To welcome it


To greet The Dawn


As they do...


And who am I


To deny


Nature's own song


Telling me


That I still belong?

Honestly, I don't care how he died. I care how he lived. You are what you leave behind and Prince left gold.
