Strike a chord...

Try imagining life without music.... Can you? I dont think so....
How would u describe a day that has gone by without listening to a piece of music, humming to yourself or singing it loud??
Thats when i say u ve just passed a day, mightve fulfilled all your tasks, done some great work, were kind, mean or have done nothing thoughout the day..doesnt matter....
but uve not 'lived' that day....

"Music is the essence of life." One who said this couldnt be more right.
It can reflect any emotion anyone ever felt. Feeling elated, thrilled, afraid, sad, romantic, affectionate, angry...anything...music can capture those emotions spot on.
You might fail with words to express what u feel, but music does not give up on you.
One who can create such music n connect to people or just enjoy music on that level is...i dono what word would best describe the idea, but may be.. creative, blessed, fortunate... or just alive.
Now dont get me wrong here.. all i mean is.. being musical is not all about learning, practicing or performing something...its about discovering your soul.

But some of us dont give ourselves that time or thought to do that anymore.
I for one, had stopped listening to music or singing to myself for a while. I was so preoccupied or just obsessed with what i wanted to achieve that i forgot to be 'me'.
I worked like a maniac, got what i wanted too, but i was restless, couldnt enjoy my success...cos i just wasnt myself. I couldnt quite put a finger on what was wrong, tried to find reasons in others and the so called-situations. But you gotta search yourself for answers first.
Youve gotto take it easy once in a while..explore what u like to do and enjoy yourself.
And this is what im gonna do. I am joining music classes again and i know im gonna rock it.

So turn up the volume and tap those feet..
sing out loud..dont bother who s around...
cry over your recent breakup just this one last time to a 'tadap tadap ke'...
or just doze off to an old classic melody...
whatever you are doing...
let music do the magic!
