A palatial paradise rises out of the arid land of Ancient Egypt. Within its walls the calls of the slaves mingle with the laughter of the royal sons and daughters of the king as a unseen power takes its first dark breath ...
A majestic villa, within a kingdom thought to be beyond the reach of Ancient Rome, is no longer a safe harbor as the struggle for life begins ...
The beauty of a village in Ohke, overlooking the deep blue bay of a new world, is shattered ...
Their paths converged into one in a way no one ever imagined ....
Prince is a man of deep thought who helps many of us as we work through our questions about life, death, and purpose. He challenges us to examine who we are individually and, even more importantly, how we are all the same ... so we may see our similarities, not our differences and finally come together as One.
"Be the reflection in the mirror and Love your enemy is possible."
These past three years, I have been asked many times “Why this story?”
My answer is “Because it was given to me to share with whoever wishes to read it.”
This story started as a whisper, leading me on a journey into the music and world of Prince Roger Nelson, as he wove the Song with music and words full of love, laughter, anger, questions, hope, and tears. I learned about Love at his knee as he sang the Song that spans all divisions. The One Song.
The One Song that comes in Many Colors, Many Ways, Many Sounds
“When we have freedom to do all things, especially learn, we can learn our history that will again inform our dream.” – Prince
God, my deepest ... thanks is not it, hesed (chesed*) and dedication is Yours... I give my life to you and that is still is not enough for the joy you have brought into my life with both goodness and the trials, for Brother, my children, friends, everyone who has been and is with me along this path. I am humbled to have been allowed this journey because I am not worthy of it and was still allowed to hear.
Brother, my love goes beyond words, as you know, and the happiness that you found me and everyone else who also hears you, once more is endless. You know.
My children: Jonathan, Elizabeth, Timothy - thank you for thinking I am crazy thus assuring me I was sane. I am proud of you and love you deeply. Keep an open mind as I have always told you and THINK, don't follow. Lead the leaders in action, thought and word. You know.
The Truth is waiting for you.
EVERYONE who has been my support both with listening to me, being my beta readers, disagreeing with me, teaching me, giving me guidance or another door to open or close ... oh! enduring my long-winded conversations about these books day after day after day and year after year: you know who you are within my life, in the world, the Purple Fam pages on Facebook, in Minnesota, in North Carolina, my long suffering neighbors who have listened to Prince pounding out of my room or my car. Every conversation has been a learning experience, every thought, every shared idea and most of all every time you disagreed with me - all treasured and important. Thank you,Thank you for the love, the support and the smiles even when deep inside you were screaming "Finish with the books already!"
I love you.
And the Teachers teach ... thank you.
