Soothing music for the soul

“If we could live happy and healthy lives without hurting others, why whouldn’t we?”

That’s a good question.

So without futher comments, I present you Leon, the piglet on wheels.

Being born a ‘farm’ pig, Leon was destined for the plate, but then an accident caused by his injured mum (which claimed the life of two of his siblings) saw Leon up against it again. With his right hind femur both broken and dislocated, plus an injured hock and ligament damage on the other side, things could not have looked much grimmer for the wee chap. But no one told the plucky little Leon that these obstacles of his world should hold him back. His life was precious, and thankfully this was recognized by a kind hearted soul who sought a better outcome for Leon.

 

What shaped me

When I was turning 16 it wasn’t so sweet. I was an angsty teenager who threw fits and didn’t know where I belonged, or what I was supposed to do. And yes, this is one of those sappy posts that reminisce about past times and which – in retrospect – almost always make sense.

I found my refuge in music. It was my solace, inspiration, motivation and escape from my own world. What I found in music was what kept me afloat. And there is only one album I can credit that for. It prompted the start of my own recognition – the journey of my own transcending into a more spiritual awareness. It all started with Jewel. And to this day I have to remind myself I wouldn’t be where I am today without the epic CD Pieces of You, acrylic paint, the arts of Paul Gauguin and writing. Today I’m 32, but whenever I hear this song, I’m traveling back in time, reliving my youth, cherishing the memories and thinking  I’ve had a heck of a ride. And it will keep going, because as humans we are  all always in some kind of transition, whether it be relationships, work, ideologies, dreams, ambitions…. you name it.

This song will always be my favorite. Because it made something inside of me alive, and whatever that was soothed me in some of my most difficult times.

 

“I prefer to play older songs because they’re the ones I personally enjoy dancing and singing along to and modern dance music bores my brains out.”

Somebody buy me this book? I’m poor.

Slipping through my fingers… then suddenly gone

Do you know the feeling?

Ah yes. You should know by now that I’m such a geek. I’m a sucker for drama, lyrics, music, literature…words. They haunt me and make me suffer. I become the meaning. It’s scary yet so wonderful.

I currently love this amazing song. Enjoy, get lost and resurface.
