There was a rare airing of a Prince concert on YouTube recently, only made available for a few days, from his Purple Rain heyday in 1985. I watched it gleefully. I was too young to attend a concert in 1985, but I was obsessed with the Purple Rain cassette at the time and even had a button of Prince’s face pinned to the strap of my very first purse.
Even though I was 35 years and thousands of miles away from that time in my life, the music and the images on YouTube sent me back there, sent me back to little me. How remarkable.
Have you time traveled recently?
