Record makes me think of record players, and the only record that I can remember owning was Purple Rain by Prince. I was in the 5th grade, and it was the most popular record out there. I remember how excited I was to get that shiny purple record, and how great Prince’s songs were. His music was truly an inspiration. From his title track Purple Rain to Let’s Go Crazy and When Doves Cry, his music brought me a lot of enjoyment. I remember dancing around the house listening to it over and over.
We didn’t have much, so it was very special for me to receive this new, highly sought after record. I remember taking it with me on the school bus so I could show it to all my friends with such pride. They all gathered around to look at and touch that purple record with amazement as all we had ever seen were normal black records.
So today’s daily inspiration brings back a great memory of my love for one shiny, purple record!
