It has been over a week since the death of Prince, and I'm still struggling with deep grief over his passing. I haven't attended any of the many events here in Minneapolis commemorating his life. I just hadn't felt comfortable sharing with strangers what is a very private loss to me. But today I finally made the trip out to Paisley Park to pay my respects, as thousands have done since he died on April 21. Here are a few pictures I took this morning. It was a beautiful day, even if it was a sad one.
Walking up to Paisley Park
Didn't seem right to smile.
So much amazing artwork created by the fans
This was my favorite piece--his face drawn using the titles of his songs.
I miss him so much. I feel like much of the magic has gone out of the world.
