    Don't you love the feeling

    when you listen to a song for the first time and you just instantly fall in love with it.

    I for some unknown reason I sing When I am

    stressed, I remember far back into childhood's hour how I'd spend my days outside playing and exploring nature, all the while singing to all my little creature friends.A song I enjoy singing too, lol... even though I am probably tone deaf.

    I can honestly say music is a really big part

    of my life, but then again I find it hard if it's not the same for everyone. I spend a good percentage of my days listening to music, whether I'm on my way to work, or other places. Music calms me down and at the same time it helps me express myself. I love to write with music...

    Music has been part of my life

    since I was a young child. I played the violoncello for 12 years, but have come to enjoy improvisation the most. I did not succeed on the piano, but have taught myself to play the electric guitar and I sometimes ham with my best friend. There are some musical gems, which have...

    Most certainly ... 💯So far from home

    overseas in Japan so I gotta have a way to feel like I'm back in NYC/Jersey. What's better than looking up some great albums that got me through my adolescents? Sticking close to my guy Nas tonight - New York state of mind 🗽

    His fingers rest gently on the keys a soft

    gentle touch. A bond formed. His heart bleeds between the sounds of the black and whites before him. Tears sing a melody that resonates deep within as he coaxes musical poetry from reluctant ivory. I miss you... Where are you? Why are you not with me? Can you hear me? Can...

    Listening to Mozart's Requiem

    for what seemed like the hundredth time, I find myself lost in a parallel universe, where I am breathtakingly tortured by my own wretchedness and the beauty of the melody. If I could cry, I'd shed all my tears for the way I feel as the notes and the words fluently and...

    Music is nourishment

    for the soul. A song with just the right lyrics can motivate, the right melody can resonate with one's inner power, and the right rhythm can cause one's inner energy to pulsate again to the beat. There are times when I am depressed that I will sing a motivational song pouring...

    Finding old music you used to love is like

    getting back in touch with an old friend. I love how when you find that one song, you instantly go back to that same feeling you used to have, or in that same mindset you were in when you heard it in the first place.

    The singer K.K. When we have not let language

    If there's no one who understands you,

    there's always one song, one artist that does.

    I make music for me I make music

    as an outlet for control I make music to feel I make music to abandon this place, this difficult place inside of myself, and be a different element. Out of my element. Think about it, think about the music. No one will judge you there. No one will call you out on your madness...

    I experience anxiety very often.

    Sometimes it keeps me from coming out of my room or being able to get out of a car if I see that the store or mall is busy. I very much dislike that this happens but it is normal for some people with Aspergers. But I can be calmed by certain opera music like the arias...
