Thanks so much for sharing this. Was feeling really sad today thinking about his passing and this has cheered me up and made me think about the good times. I'm out of my depth with all the discussion about the search warrants and Mayte's book, this vid has helped me to get things into perspective. I'm determined not to be sad on the anniversary day, am going to play some favourite music and maybe watch SoTT.

Here's a thought you might like then...after the rain stopped last year...the rainbow over Paisley Park. It was so special that even the media couldn't ignore it rainbo

Yep. I was there to see it. πŸ’œ

Wow. That is so cool.

I was there too. I wish I would have saved the picture that was posted online because I could make out the back of me in the crowd. But those first days were a haze for me. It was a struggle to wrap my head around what had happened.

He was, is and always will be special. Somehow, all this will work itself out. One of the positive things about this whole thing is that I've met some really remarkable people with good hearts.

This goes up and gets taken down, but it's great listening to him just being him.

Yes, this is the very essence of who he was. Thank you for sharing it. The hand on the heart thing always gets me, too.

There really isn't anything I could learn about him that would change how I feel about him, his life and his legacy. He is now where he most desired to be, supporting us and lifting us up with the music he left behind.

I will always consider myself blessed to have lived in the same lifetime as Prince (and to have been on his wavelength from the very beginning).

exactly..why do some people get a negative feeling by what they have "learned" since his passing..

Ya'll are welcome. She's got a great way of portraying her sentiments while encapsulating him in his mystery.

Same here. I am going to celebrate and turn that day into someting positive. Tears will be shed but that's okay too.

Don't use that magical, mysterious, intoxicating, joy fantastic, fascinating word called love unless U love me to the 9's πŸ’œ
