I’ve mentioned many times in the past, in this blog, and in many many places – music is life. For me, its one of the most soul touching artistic expressions. I don’t write music… really, although I have dabbled, I don’t really sing music… much. But something about music, just sort of makes my spirit light, and happy. There are quite a few artists that just seem to be able to make my hips sway, and my body swoon, as I connect to the pulse that they gave birth to in the compilation. I believe things happen in threes in the universe, its just the nature for me of beginnings, and endings. P started my day by telling me the news that Avicii passed away today. A very inspiring young artist of music, snuffed out. While I recognize that all of life is fleeting; perhaps more than the average person, and that the breath every breath we take is priceless. To say this saddens me is somewhat limiting. Many of the icons of music, the pillars that stand as beacons for the cosmic muses of the ethers, channels for the spirit of music to flow through to the rest of us, they are aging. There are many talented singers, and a few talented song writers, but in the younger musicians there have not been many that were as promising to understanding the ebb and flow of that addiction that is music, the way that Avicii seemed to… seemed to appreciate it. Now, his spirit goes on, and his work will be what it was, during is life. And maybe the muses will birth another to take his place on the up and climbing rise.
This posted, actually started with me intending to give thanks, to my bliss, two of my favorite musical muses released a combined album today. Inspired by the times, and the same heart song that has resonated with each of them for decades. And as would be expected from both of these icons of music, the album is ridiculous, and incredible. They had released teaser songs a few months back, and those were well received, and now the full album comes out – today, 4/20. So so serendipity. The album is just so much a touchstone, a way to reach in and touch that muse that so inspires all of music. Its just great for dance, for love, for chill and generally for just back drop music for life.
Had an interesting conversation with my PT yesterday, about inspirations, and I realized part of why I’m struggling to get on the path where I should be, to walk along the path. Instead of ambling along the edges, poking in and out of the path with the comfort and casualness of youth, instead of trodding confidently along this path, this direction that I know is correct. Is due in significant part, to a lack of inspiration. In talking with her, I realized I’m seeking inspiration. This is a call to the universe to spam me with the kind of inspiration I need, to get the job done. To push down the course with happiness and grace.
