What touched my soul this week.



Something that touched my soul this week.


Prince, the multi -talented performer, was found dead in the last few days.

I was not a real fan but have heard most of his music and will not deny he was very talented.

I liked a few of his recordings, I suppose I heard them when our children were younger.
I remember painting this and calling it 

Purple Rain

just because of the popularity of the song.

When I read he had died I dug around and found this painting.
 
 I was just learning how to paint ribbons and put that flip on things. Giving it a 2 dimensional look.

He was very creative and knew music inside and out. Could play many different instruments and was reported to be sought after for collaboration with many musicians.

He was only 57.
We had a death in our family this week also.
My only living relative from my father's family of orgin.
My Aunt Martha, my father's youngest sister died at age 101.

Her mind was as sharp as a tack, she was blind but nothing keep her from visiting with friends and family and she could remember even when I was a little girl just born.
She laid down for a nap and did not wake up.
A blessing since she had told me she was ready any time God was.
I have that same feeling and know that there are worse things than death.
57 is too young to die, 101 is not.

RIP
Aunt Marth
and 
Prince

Linking up with A Soulful Life
