Prince was my first ever concert. I had life-sized posters of him up in my dorm room in college. He was my absolute favorite musical artist of all time. He helped me learn to embrace myself as I am, to go for it, to be as sensual, as ambiguous, as wild and free as I need to be. Yesterday was tough.
Leaving you today with some purple cacti, and his words:
Honey, I know, I know
I know times are changing
It’s time we all reach out
For something new, that means you too
You say you want a leader
But you can’t seem to make up your mind
I think you better close it
And let me guide you to the purple rain.
