Landmarks in Life ~

IMG_6835We are all part of Landmark events; the birth of a child, a wedding, the passing of a loved one, a success in life. Each waypoint becomes a memorable time in life waiting to be revisited when we feel the need. When we allow these moments in time to resurface, feelings emerge and we reflect on how each of them changed who we are. We connect our dots. They eventually define who we are as a whole. Each one of these Landmark events is part of what develops our core.

I recently added a dot to my journey in life. I feel as though I have a blank sheet of music that awaits the melody I will create. The people I meet along the way are the notes, those who are a constant in my life are that familiar chorus, the memories we make together will become the lyrics to my song. Each chord that is played will evoke a feeling that will resonate with me for years to come. Some verses in my song will haunt me, others will overflow with passion, some will bring a ((((smile)))), others may well a tear to the surface that will courageously take its own path and gently slip away.

As we walk along our path creating our music in life we will be joined by a select few who will walk with us for our entire journey. Others will joins us to teach us a lesson or two and then fade away off into the distance. Some will walk with us long enough to challenge who we are and may even change our path. There will be few who will feel like home that will unconditionally love who we are and accept all the musical genres we have created. They will fight for us. They will stand strong at our side no matter where we choose to go.

We all meet those who make their mark in our lives. We may not play with them as often as we would like, but they are instrumental in helping us write our song. We learn in time that when we need them to hum that familiar chorus they will, when the time is right. They are part of who we are, our internal compass, that finds us and brings us back home when we are lost amid the chaos in life.

Music is the Cure…

First I must thank Bonnie and Jacquie for the beautiful surprise of having Lawrence join us yesterday by adding his voice which I have loved since the day we connected. My heart is overflowing!  I have so many wonderful people in my life to be grateful for…Thank you all for making my day special! xo

I love listening to music. For me Music is the cure to everything. Music adds an element to life that I think without it, would be flat. When you mix your favourite tunes with pretty much anything I think it opens something up in your mind letting in a creative energy that can’t help but inspire. Words inspire, but when accompanied by music…they embody the feelings. It clears my mind, exhilarates my body and makes my spirit soar!

My favourite is listening to music live. There is something about watching the passion in another human being as they create or play music. It’s a gift that eluded me unfortunately. 🙁 I couldn’t sing to save my life, and although I’ve tried strumming the acoustic guitar, it is much more difficult than it looks. Drums…not sure how anyone can coordinate doing 4 things at different speeds all at the same time, that boggles my mind. I am okay with being the one who sits and enjoys listening to others play their passion. It’s when you can turn off your touch, smell, sight, taste and just focus on listening…

I am drawn to musician, and not just the handsome variety, the female energy also. I am envious of their ability to create something so beautiful.

Music can change or enhance any mood your in. Enya makes me fantasize about ball room dancing and Madonna makes me not give a fat babies ass (to quote PitBull) what anyone thinks of me. Rob Thomas’s ‘smooth’ vocals melt me. Enigma as Bonnie has posted about in the past is the Best Music to Have Sex To (Bonnies words and post not mine…ya I know!) giggle!

I love finding new music, it’s why I watch the Grammy’s, they were awesome by the way if you missed them on Sunday night! I was just turned onto Walk Off The Earth…simply awesome! Such a creative group of musicians who went viral overnight! Magic!

Music is the cure to all lifes trials and tribulations…in my opinion.

Musicians are Sexy…  (my post from All Things Sexy and Silver…it just seemed to fit)

There is something overwhelmingly sexy about a man who can create music. “Music is how feeling sound”...(one of my favourite quotes) Woman are drawn to men who can express feeling, whether it be through the simplicity of words strung together, or a melody that pulls at our heart strings. When a man learns to read the music of a womens heart he captures her.

“Music is the art of sound in time that expresses ideas and emotions in significant forms through the elements of rhythm, melody, harmony and colour.” A man who can create feelings with his unique interpretation of those elements has a powerful presence. Is it the man that seduces us or do we open ourselves to the poetic features of music and allow the man to enter because he holds a key? Music is a form of expression more unique than language, it adds the element of vibrationally energy that although we can’t all create, we have an insatiable desire to hear and feel it.

Music allows us to open our minds, to a level of consciousness far beyond what we are used to. When we open our mind, body and spirit to it, our soul dances. When we open our mind body and spirit to the one who creates the music we dance together.

The mind of a musician is on a frequency that’s invisible to some. When a single note is released it affects us like a scent traveling through the atmosphere until it become a mere whisper. It touches each of us in a unique way, taking us to places we’ve been before and those we have yet to explore. Allow yourself the pleasure of getting lost in the music, or the musician who is creating it. Make a Memory ~

Musicians captivate crowds with their art form that allows the listener to join with them on their intimate journey of interpretation. They surrender to the music as they perform. We connect with then as we allow our feeling to surface as we listen. The vibrational rhythm is not only heard, it’s felt by every cell of our body transcending us to a place that feels like no other.

It’s one thing in life I wouldn’t want to live without.

Music is the prelude to everything…
