Welcome to Awakenings

Life IS history in the making. Every word we say, everything we do becomes history the moment it is said or done. Life void of memories leaves nothing but emptiness. For those who might consider history boring, think again: It is who we are, what we do and why we are here. We are certainly individuals in our thoughts and deeds but we all germinated from seeds planted long, long ago.

♫The Music of Prince♫

Each of us enjoy our "own kind of music" within a broad spectrum of choices. If we all liked the same kind of music, those choices would be reduced drastically and a lot of talent would be nonexistent. Today we pause in remembrance of someone who has sold over 100 million records worldwide. It is not surprising for that musician to be one of the best selling artists of all time, in fact, Rolling Stone ranked Prince at number 27 in its list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.
