Yer Birthday

The many faces of Prince – with thanks to Jeff Gantt for assembling this collage

Prince is fortunate to share the year of my birthday ūüôā ¬†In honour of the man’s 55th birthday on 7 June I’m posting this reminder of his work. ¬†Prince is hugely creative, and this creativity is based on meticulous preparation and discipline, something I find that some ‘creatives’ resist. ¬†Structure and improvisation are bedfellows.

Anyway, enough waffle, happy birthday Prince. ¬†Keep acting your age, not your shoe size…. ¬†At 55, you outperform some people 1/3 of your age. ¬†Something to aspire to, as experience becomes more important than exuberance!

and a picture taken the last time I went to see his Purple Holiness ¬†….

Not quite 55, not quite Prince ...
