My best memory of Prince is my daughter in her raspberry beret. She was only ten, but she loved the song Raspberry Beret and as soon as she knew what that meant, she had to have one. How can a performing artist who is so radical touch a child’s heart? Maybe that is what genius means. Being able to defy and transcend easy categorization in your creative life. Whatever. I’m sad Prince died, and I’m sad he seems to have been sad, especially since he gave so much joy. For you, Prince, a purple sparkleball.
