Life & Music

I’ve always had a love for  music… music in all forms. I listen to music when I am happy, I listen to music when I am sad and I have always found that no matter how I feel in life – there is always something out there that sings to my emotions in the purest and most raw way possible. Music is life.
People turn to all sorts of things when they need to speak but cannot find words. I turn to music.
Along with my love of music and the messages that have enriched my life over the years, I have also relied heavily on lyrics to learn and grow. There have been songs where lyrics tell me exactly what I need to hear. The advice buried in the melody stays with me as little reminders throughout life. For instance… “Living is easy with eyes closed, misunderstanding all you see…” a quote from The Beatles Strawberry Fields has been my constant reminder to truly live, grow… and feel life. Maybe it goes a little deeper than that, but that’s not for now.
At just nine months, my daughter already has a fondness for music. Even though the songs she enjoys are mostly nursery rhymes and hold no real deep message, she is learning to be expressive in dance and the simple lyrics are helping her grow. With the alphabet song, she can learn her ABC’s, thus learn to communicate. And yes, even “The Wheels On The Bus” is significant to her.
I thought of some of the songs that connect me to others, even if they don’t realize it. The words, the melodies and the emotions that go along with these songs belong to those individuals – in my mind, anyway. Each of these songs are significant beyond words, beyond their lyrics and they always make me pause and think of that person. Then I smile, or laugh, or cry, or simply hold them in my heart for a brief moment.
 
 
For the love of my daughter
 
For the love of my husband
 
 
For the love my my best friend/soul sister
 
 
For the love of my mother
 
For the love of my father
 

I'd love to hear from you!

  • Today my godson received his 1st Holy Communion in this beautiful Church. It was such a special day for our family, friends and the families of all the other children receiving today. 💕 today reminded me of my own 1st Communion. It was the day I entered the Catholic Church, 5 years ago, on Divine Mercy Sunday. 5 years! It really feels like it was only just yesterday.
So happy and so proud. My heart is full. 💕

  • moving towards things may mean moving away from things; then there’s the making of time for the new things by leaving behind some old things... Basically, it’s time for me to refocus some energy on more of what lifts me and the fam up. I am so exhausted.
