This is not exactly my typical post on here. Often enough, it’s about deeper things and my thoughts regarding them. As much as this is an emotionally involved piece of writing, it is of a wonderful kind. Continue reading

As promised, this is the second part to my ramblings of a writer post not long ago…

It’s ironic that I’m writing this blog post on the 19th, and speaking about the emotive effect songs can have on you; mainly since it’s been exactly 9 months since I lost my precious grandmother, and many can imagine; and know the magnitude of what loss can be. At times, it feels like rain on your parade, and other times, it’s another, different story.

But, let’s get straight to the point: Music. Continue reading

I have to write a tribute tonight, simply because this man was like none other,
in ways that cannot be put into words even in the slightest. I still can’t believe I have to describe his impact in past tense. 2016 has been the year of loss for music.

His passing is a gigantic loss for the music industry, and the artists who now mourn a legend. I have loved Prince’s records ever since I was a little girl, my dad always played
his songs wherever he had the chance. The whole family adored his music, in fact.

I think today was the first time I’ve actually seen my dad break down.

He was incredibly influenced and always will be by Prince,
so his passing definitely has an effect on the whole of his life onwards.

I, myself, completely in denial over all of this, I kind of am refusing to accept it.
As much as I know that life can end in less than a moment, it still never fails to hurt my-
heart when someone of his incredible talent just leaves the present world like this.

He was a timeless, selfless, one-of-a-kind human being, who was more than his voice, he was something unique, there will never be another like him. There will be artists and musicians, but none will compare to the one and only; Prince.

I truly wish I could have witnessed his greatness in person, it would have been an honor.

RIP Prince, you blessed us with your love of music.

Crying purple for the loss of you. Xo
