RIP, Prince

RIP, Prince.  Thank you for being unapologetically you, a fantastic musician, honest about coming from a difficult family background, faithful to Minnesota, and sexy in purple.


"Every day I feel is a blessing from God.  And I consider it a new beginning.  Yeah, everything is beautiful."

"A strong spirit transcends rules."

"Despite everything, no one can dictate who you are to other people."

"There's a dark side to everything."

"There are people who are unhappy with everything."

"I have a writing addiction."

"I don't talk about the past."

"I like arguments."

"When I want to hear good music, I write it myself."
