♪Serenade my Soul♫

When words forsake us and we need an outlet to let it all go, [most] of us turn to music.

Music is my escape from the grasps of reality… of everything really. I let my mind sail away, drifting in with the lyrics, and crashing out with my bottled up emotions. Laughter, tears, tantrums, dance parties – oh yeah, I’ve been there. Dance party for one, please! 

“I was within and without. Simultaneously enchanted and repelled by the inexhaustible variety of life.” ~Gatsby

Sometimes music is just that needed breath, my revitalization to face the world, especially on those days when I feel like I’m the only soldier on the battlefield. Withdrawing to the 11th floor library window, to my little brown rocking chair, I rock away, contemplating the riddles of life itself. The emotions, my bottled emotions, slowly dissolve into twisting verses which I quickly scribble down, nodding my head to the beat of the latest tune…

Come away little lass come away to the water,
To the ones that are waiting only for you.
Come away little lass come away to the water,
Away from the life that you always knew.
We are calling to you.

They are almost like miniature, serenading conversations; like singing experiences that chronicle my awareness to my controlled feelings. Before I realize it, the music has cradled my mind, enveloping my thoughts before they could reestablish themselves in my brain. I am left feeling composed, calm, and at peace with myself…

“…so let your soul fade into the music as the mist embraces the sun at dawn 

come now, come with me, we walk to the beat of our own drums…” (written by author)

  1. I don’t know how you do it, but you always write such awesome and beautifully written posts! I can honestly picture you looking out of the library window with your music playing through your headphones… Kinda jealous that your library has 11 floors though??
    P.S. That Gatsby quote… #youregreat that’s all I can say 🙂
