Because I’m a professional musician I sometimes forget to stop and LISTEN to the music! I get so carried away in the process of making music (which has its own joys of course!) that I forget to enjoy the product!
My wife and flamenco dancer, Lena Jácome, has found a popular song she LOVES! She has probably listened to it 150-200 times in the last 4 days. Just over and over and over. Isn’t that cool! Isn’t that such an amazing experience when we find a piece of music that we just can’t get enough of!?!
I hope that you have had that experience with a piece of music in your life. And if not with music, then with something positive like another art, a book, a favorite food or a love-interest. This healthy kind of obsession is one of the joys of being human. The last song I lusted over was by Pearl Jam. It is called, “Just Breathe“.
The power of music and how a song can resonate so strongly is awe-inspiring. We are walking, living bodies of energy and how a certain type of music or a particular song makes our energy come to life is majestic. It is miraculous.
Here’s to the world taking a few moments to enjoy and celebrate the incredible miracle of life and humanity.
Ole! from your amigo,
