The Sky Was All Purple

If you’re thinking this is another Prince post, you’re wrong-ish. This is a Dean post (that’s me for anyone who is new here), but Prince is obviously my inspiration. I’m heading into purple skies and gray clouds….

The Sky Was All Purple

The Sky Was All Purple| I wish I could say I was dreamin’ when I wrote this, but please do forgive me if I go astray. When I woke up this morning the sky was all purple my mind was everywhere. I was trying to run from my own destruction of my thoughts being here and there.

I wish I could say I was dreamin’ when I wrote this, but please do forgive me if I go astray. When I woke up this morning the sky was all purple, my mind was everywhere. I was trying to run from my own destruction of my thoughts being here and there. The problem is I do care. I know too much about everything and everyone and I’m losing myself in it all. My focus has become blurred by a million things to do. The gray clouds are creeping in. I’m feeling a little lost. I’m ready to fit in and find MY place. Formation.

Life Is Just A Party and Parties Weren’t Meant To Last

The sky was all purple there were people fighting everywhere....

There are wars all around us, I’m tired of all the fights. If we can’t live together as people, how can we live at all? I almost feel like 1999 was more progressive than today. If we’re fighting over Old Navy campaigns in the name of “racial genocide”, then we STILL haven’t decided we’re equal. And if we can’t love enough to put down our damn phones to save a life, what the hell….

When a front runner candidate for the position of PRESIDENT of the United States is backed by hate,  endorses xenophobia, talks poorly of women (and you know how I feel about being a woman), mocks others (I could hyperlink that to numerous stories); this person doesn’t want to build bridges… just walls- zero parties. Perhaps, party over. Opps, we’re out of time!

If You Didn’t Come to Party, Don’t Bother Knockin’ On My Door

I’m done with the bullshit. But the bullshit is all around. I thought I moved away from it, but it follows. I’m a lover not a hater, but I am a fighter, and I will fight off hate. If you’re not here on this earth to be the good and party like it’s your last day, what are you here for? I got a lion in my pocket and I’m ready to roar. 😉 Everybody has the ability to fight for love, for peace, and happiness. We could all die any day, but before I let that happen I’m going to love, draw, paint, write, and dance my life away. Those are the things I need right now to stir away from the gray anyway…

  1. Keep fighting! We need lovers in this world or our skies will be black. It is definitely a frustrating time to be an American but it’s also a wonderful time to be living where we are. Sometimes when I get overloaded I turn to my family and block out social media and news to focus on the now of my tiny community. 🙂 xo

  2. Oh honey, I think we’re so alike.
    And that last paragraph reminds me of my own fighting spirit.
    Today I was on the couch, motionless, because the sun hasn’t come out in six days, there are wildfires raging through my favorite country, Donald Trump, Target bathrooms, Old Navy ads that are gorgeous, Donald Trump, and that moose are dying in New England from ticks.
    Ticks.
    Sigh.

  3. You’re not alone! I keep blaming all the craziness on Mercury Retrograde because…well sometimes things are so cray cray I need to find something to blame! I’ve been feeling off too. Ugh! Let’s hug it out! 😡

  4. Your words ring true for many in these days. Gray days at times, yes. Especially right now with the uncertainty of who is going to lead our country. Without getting into politics and such, I could let how I feel about people in general whether it be on the streets, on social media or on the news keep me in gray skies. But like you, I choose to believe in the good of this nation. How strong it still is and how it can be in the future even stronger. People are just people and they can bring us down. So “call me a dreamer” (John Lennon) but I Iike to bask in pink skies when they appear and remember with all the horrid in society, there is still much to be thankful for. Hang in there sweetie! Continue to be the “lover” and not the hater of all things. Be the light as you are. Be the example for your children, the next generation!

  5. Oh this brought tears to my eyes. I’m stick in shock about Trump, and what he represents, but worse that people actually voted in favor of someone so full of hatred. It’s disgusting. And that Old Navy ad, and the way people are responding to bathrooms at Target. So much naïveté and fear. It really saddens me.
    Let’s fight the good fight!

  6. I so don’t understand why some people are so hateful. It’s easier to love than it is to hate, so why no love. It’s still unbelievable that Donald Trump will be the Republican nominee. I never read any of the posts about the Old Navy ad so I had no idea how bad the comments were. It’s sad that so many people have a problem with a simply ad of an interracial couple in 2016. It’s sad 🙁 And I still don’t get why people are so upset of the Target bathrooms. They all need to chill and love to learn themselves, because if you hate other people for no reason you definitely have a lot of problems with yourself.

  7. Love this entire post! Sometimes I just can’t believe the hate I see happening in this country, and how people refuse to open their minds but they have no problem opening their mouths to let the stupid out for all to endure. 🙁
