This Thing Called Life

Today, Prince died.

It's hard to imagine that I would have to write that.  But there it is.

Life, go figure.

Prince was a major talent as a performer and as a songwriter not to mention breaking down the barriers between music as we knew it and new frontiers of what music can be.

Except this......

Dearly beloved
We are gathered here today
2 get through this thing called life

Electric word life
It means forever and that's a mighty long time
But I'm here 2 tell u
There's something else
The afterworld

A world of never ending happiness
U can always see the sun, day or night

So when u call up that shrink in Beverly Hills
U know the one - Dr Everything'll Be Alright
Instead of asking him how much of your time is left
Ask him how much of your mind, baby

'Cuz in this life
Things are much harder than in the afterworld
In this life
You're on your own

And if de-elevator tries 2 bring u down
Go crazy - punch a higher floor
--------introduction to "Let's Go Crazy" by Prince

Rest in peace, Prince. You were awesome and you will be missed.

Everyone out there, remember to be good to one another.
