At this point, there’s absolutely no way at all any one on the face of the earth is unaware that Prince is dead. To be perfectly honest, I’m still in a bit of shock.
Men like Prince tend to exist within a fog of ethereal surrealness. The problem with this is, is that while they are alive and walking on two legs, the legacy that they have created tends to do the majority of ‘the living’ for them. Because of that, we tend to forget that these ‘larger than life’ heroes of ours are just as vulnerable as we are.
Short of that, I’d rather not try and add any other bullshit to this. If I were to do so, it would be like trying to have a conversation with someone who is on the other side of a busy rail yard. Instead of that, I’d rather remember the good things that Prince has given us, and the better things that have come, or will come, from his passing.
What follows are some of the better things that have come across my feeds in the past week. I hope you enjoy them.
Thanks for reading,
