Okay here I go. From that day in 2015 where he literally pulled my pale ass out of that circle of depression and anxiety I told myself: "You gonna meet this man one day just to thank him for that." I really wanted to meet him just for that. And I always thought this is going to happen because I believed that Prince was one of the few people in showbiz who don't have any problems with substance abuse. And then in 2016......my dream of meeting him died with him and this will always hit me in the face. Sometimes I can't accept the fact that I'll never be able to thank him, but I sometimes hope that there's an afterlife and that he can read what we write on here. sad

I miss him so much.

I'd say nothing, since chances are best he'd hear proper folks in that way.

Beautifully said, and I'm sure he's still around in some way. I think we all have some regrets, even those of us who met/knew him. There's always a "What if..." or "If only..." When I met him I was way too young to truly understand and appreciate the meaning of it and how important it was for the course of my own life or the person that I am today. And I'm still learning. Sometimes I will listen to one of his albums and still discover new things and I'm once again in so much awe and admiration for his incredible talent and his commitment.

I would say (if I could get the words out of my mouth), "Hi, Great job." But if I could write him a letter that i knew he would read, I would say "Please take breaks. Please always let your humor shine. Please remember that your employees have families and need better hours. Please give everyone a chance to prove they are trusting until they prove you wrong. or how else will you find the truely honorable people", "Please remember there are worse "sins" than dirty words", "Please remember that those who argue with you, love you the most" "Please remember sharpening your faith means reconciling its inconsistencies for oneself and not letting doctrine dominate your spirituality", "Please wear less makeup or none sometimes because you are gorgeous even with imperfections". "Please don't forget your legacy while fighting for artists' rights. In other words, don't excise yourself from the internet and make yourself obsolete". "Please be careful with pain medication and avoid the black market". "Please know that we all have vulnerability but its the strongest of us who face our vulnerabilities and deal with them with a clear open mind".

Well, I wasn't writing it to you. And I stated "a letter that I knew he would read" which was intended to imply that that particular day he was open to some mild criticism. NO doubt he would probably throw it away. I am talking about what I wish he would have been willing to consider.

I bet he got that a lot. Unfortunately, he was a busy man who probably didn't have the time for each fan who is tongue-tied to formulate a sentence. LOL. He was probably used to it.

I did once on stage, we hugged & I told him I loved him..it's my greatest memory of Prince.... that for a couple of seconds I was able to make eye contact, connect & tell him that I loved him. The fact that he acknowledged it with grace was the icing on the cake.

I wouldn't have finished reading a letter like that. It is all about you and what you think you wanted from a person you never knew. Mild criticism, huh? He's not your DAD. What is up with all those Pleases?

I've thought about this many times and I'm afraid I would have been totally tongue tied and looked ridiculous. I'd like to think I would engage in a spiritual conversation with Prince on his thoughts on the afterlife. I believe he was well read on the subject and I would have loved to know his thoughts.

Thanks 4 the music!


Exactly what I said to him when I briefly spoke to him at the Park!

Got a high-five as he raced off after one of those late night sets there too,
and he ran a circle around me on his bike in the parking lot, another time when we all were leaving.

Another boo-hoo that has nothing to do with Prince. You'll survive - make some of your own art.

I was in therapy for a while and I felt like it's getting worse (my psychiatrists wasn't the best tho and I stopped going there). And then I remembered I had Purple Rain on my playlist and I didn't hear that song in a while and it was really the only thing that helped me out of that situation. I don't know why, yes I still have my moments with anxiety attacks but it's easier for me when I can listen to Prince. His music just helped in that sense, that I could get out of bed without being anxious or too depressed to get up. Of course he didn't cure it, but his music helps me dealing with it.

His music is an anxiety reducer/reliever. I couple weeks ago I had a strange dizzy spell at work. Coworkers insisted I go to the ER to get checked out. Of course I was in full blown panic attack mode as I literally could not walk on my own. After lots of tests in ER, everything came back fine. And the nurse told me several other people had been in that day with the same symptoms. After that day I was scared driving anywhere for fear of another dizzy spell... the only way I was able to keep calm was prayer & Prince music.
