Whatever your genre, I can guarantee that most of you listen to music to escape… and when I say “escape” I not referring to anything terrible, just escape! Whether it’s listening to your old high school tunes or music that takes you back to that fantastic night. Where ever it takes you, it will undoubtedly take you to some happy place, or at least it will get you to that happy place. Full disclosure, I have a little gipsy in me, (surprise, surprise) tambourine and all (not really) but music is a huge part of my life, I can’t get through a day without it… it’s my crack (FOR REAL). I don’t know precisely what my genre is, I listen to listen, anything from Lenny Kravitz, Drake, Sza, George Micheal, Dianna Krall, Opera, Jazz, Country and more recently, Kendrick Lamar, nothing is off limits!
Music…I had NO idea how powerful it could be (well maybe I did, just not to the scope that it’s affected me more recently), rocking my world. What if you sent someone a song via a text, sounds harmless, right? Is it a favourite song you want to share with a friend or more? Is there a message? How will this song affect you or the recipient? WELL! I’ve taken listening to music to a whole other level, trying not to read between the lines but seriously, how is it that I can listen to the same song over and over and over again? If anything, music has taken me to places where I never would have expected. It’s all good…it’s a happy place, a mood…poetry.
We as humans have 5 senses, sight, hearing, touch, taste, and smell…
I’d like to think I’m very in tuned to hearing (musically speaking) and smell (a spritz of Chanel?), making both a priority every day and yes, the other 3 are equally important…can you still feel the touch of someone or taste that kiss or see that amazing view? I CAN! Wherever your tambourine may take you, don’t take it for granted, it’s the soul, spirit and heart of something much larger than you can imagine. Listen to what is moving you right now, act on it and don’t let that moment end…thankfully there’s a replay button, just in case you didn’t hear it the first time.
