'He was ours': Mourning the loss of Prince, music genius and eternal seeker

That night, just 12 short weeks ago, Prince was so spry, so ageless, he could’ve been that kid I first saw playing pick-up basketball at Martin Luther King, Jr. Park in 1975, or the first time I saw him live, with his “Dirty Mind”-era band at Sam’s in 1980. At Paisley in January, with a massive afro and a yogi’s body so limber it was obviously imbued by the music that has flowed through it since birth, he looked like he’d outlive everyone in the room, and the world.
