Music is gift or force that has the power to move the physical body in sequence to the source of sound, and stop time from distractions for a brief moment to allow ourselves to be free and discover the sacred inner space of mind and spirit. As it travels through space and time, it orchestrates the equilibrium of all the earthly good and bad within its process, creates a masterpiece of moving harmonics to be remembered, cherished, and shared.
The eyes have Monet, Van Gogh, Raphael, Wright, Da Vinci, and Michelangelo, but the ears have much more instruments of expression beside bristles. Distinct sounds from strings, wind, brass, percussion, and voice molded into historical creations by baton or hand can help make the daily grind and at times during life’s unfair events a bit more bearable and livable.
Caught in-between the notes and lyrics lies the subjective meaning of music and from it, music to my ears give me back the sense of self-awareness during times I felt I had no control or direction with the generalities of life and the deep holes it can create when I’m so caught up in everything but my true self. Music, in all its glory gives me back lost time for me, myself, and I.
