A pretty light post from me today… bizarrely I woke with a song in my head I have not heard in years. This has happened often lately with different songs. No idea what made it come to me!
I woke with a snippet of the lyrics was on repeat from Mantissa’s Dream Alone (Aussie band from early 90s. They never went that far but I loved them). I don’t have the CD ripped to my computer so once I got organised for the day and got to my computer I was compelled to look it up on Youtube.
Talk about the fix I needed! Bizarre & wonderful.
Will be dragging out this CD when I get home and seeing what other gems I find. I have realised that it is far too easy to think ‘That’s it, everything is f**ked!” and be on a mission to throw out everything that you are, that you were… sure, lots of stuff was f**ked and getting more f**ked up for me as I became more burnt out, obese and ill.
HOWEVER, I have to put on the brakes and stop making changes all over the shop! Instead, now I need to remember more of who I am and let that come to the front now. Work out what are the gems to keep & polish up!
Tastes in music is a flippant thing, I know. That’s why I said this post is a light one. Though for – me as music is a huge part of my life – I feel like this song being in my head when I woke is significant.
When things were really at rock bottom I look back and realise all the things I loved, the creative and inspiring stuff, the stuff that made me think like music, art, theatre, reading were all absent from my life as I was so busy, burnt out & scrambling just to get through. I did not have space or time for things like music for a little while there. Not going back to that place – not cool!
Have a fabulous day. Fill it with music!
