I’m a tough lover. And so was, Prince. Rebellious birds…! All we who go thru this thing called, life… as: Artist, Musician, Poet, Author…
Friends and colleagues, greetings to you as always; I’m glad you made it! The truth is out!!
It’s the shame that got him. The Dove had a monkey on his back. Crazy, Prince had no place safe in the jungle to jump. Trapped in the cage of the body, his electrical system had become heavily reliant on opiates, and his consciousness could not see…Continue

‘Hello, how are you?’
‘I’m fine cause I know that the Lord is coming soon.
Coming, coming soon.’
This call has been on our machine since, 1984 - albeit, in reverse. It heralds the end of long-play side one of, Purple Rain.

The sun is more than a star there. It is another planet that Urugyanses travel to. They get…Continue
Almost forgot to tell how much I love you. It may sound funny but; as I have said before, time and again: Life is so funny. And... just keep dancing.
Love, peace, and impeachment. (Treason will do.)

Peace to you and yours, Dear Reader and… Happy Tuesday. Here’s some thoughts to connect us for a few moments on whatever day or night that you receive this. I hope that you are well and trust that you, as I, we all get what we need through all of this…Continue
We must pray.
Be in mindfulness… Presence, conscious intention. Awareness… Live, laugh, love… Cause and effect. Whatever you may call it, call it and listen; for the change is coming.
Family and friends, brothers and sisters I bid you peace. Peace from the air today as I fly over the Caribbean Sea and just now can see the verdant land mass of South America. I am glad that you have received this and I hope and trust that you are well. (Fasten your seat belts, it is nine hours…Continue
