What’s the Music in Your Movie?
For me, singing sad songs often has a way of healing a situation. It gets the hurt out in the open into the light, out of the darkness. -Reba McEntire
Music doesn’t lie. If there is something to be changed in this world, then it can only happen through music. -Jimi Hendrix
How important is music in your life? It’s very important in my life and each one of the quotes reminded me of that. As I write this I remember last weekend’s free concerts at a festival where I live and just how much fun it is to see music live. It attaches to you and stirs up or calms down one’s spirit. The music in my movie would start out with Shirley Temple’s On the Good Ship Lollypop and then something by David Cassidy. I would have something by Abba, AC/DC, Lenny Kravitz, Matchbox 20, Drive by Incubus, Shaman’s Harvest, Aranda, Johnny Lang, and Black Water Rising. I’m sure I could pick hundreds of tunes in my movie.
Have fun with and art journal page today – listen to music and even dance. If there are lyrics that really speak to you write them down and how they fit in your life. How has music made a difference in your life? During some difficult times in my life I seem to turn up the volume and get lost in music just as Reba talks about.
Sometimes I feel the fear of uncertainty stinging clear and I can’t help but ask myself how much I’ll let the fear take the wheel and steer. It’s driven me before, it seems to have a vague haunting mass appeal. Lately I’m beginning to find that I should be the one behind the wheel. Whatever tomorrow brings, I’ll be there. With open arms and open eyes yeah. . . Lately, I’m beginning to find that when I drive myself, my light is found. . .
