“Purple haze, all in my brain
Lately things they don’t seem the same
Actin’ funny, but I don’t know why
Excuse me while I kiss the sky”
~Jimi Hendrix Purple Haze
I’ve written before about lyrics being misunderstood or misheard. Purple Haze is one of those songs for me. I was one of the many that thought the song said, “Excuse me while I kiss this guy.” Its funny now, but it changes the song completely and what the song meant to me for many years. I think the most amusing thing I’ve read about this song is that he wrote this song after having a dream about a purple haze engulfing him while he was underwater and that Jesus saved him. Ironically, most people think the song is about drugs…LSD trips to be more specific.
I love that music can inspire people in so many ways. I think Second Life is like that, too. We came to SL for a variety of reasons and I always think its interesting to find out what and who brought people to SL. My real life friend, Jenni, brought me to SL…we won’t talk about her master plan to get rich and how quickly that failed. Let’s just say that three months later, she had left SL and I had begun to meet people that would forever alter the course of my life.
I am so grateful for the Second Life community and the boundless friendships that I’ve cultivated across the grid…around the world. I am grateful for the creative outlet allowed me through blogging and photography. Most of all…well…Excuse me while I kiss this guy.
