    Aside from my psychological cousin,

    I also healed from my pain in rape with music. It really worked. It helped me get up again and feel more alive.

    Music Is My Sanctuary

    I always believed that

    when words fail, music speaks volumes. I've had to go without my itunes collection for a while now (not gonna go into that) and the only way I can get my music fix is by going on youtube and I swear I soak it up like a thirsty person takes in water. I am transported to my happy...

    Music Is For Traveling

    Sometimes i see me. Beneath me. Deceiving. Deceive myself. Keeps me from believing. Believe in yourself. Losing touch. I lost my way. Loss for words. Without a thing to say. But ill try again.

    I could listen to it nonstop 24/7. If someone were to take my music away from me you'd be taking a part of me along with you. Music is my best friend :)

    It's two-thirty in the morning. I'm lying in the dark. Alone. The streetlamp outside my window is casting dancing shadows on the ceiling. The few remaining leaves are helpless in the autumn wind. In a couple of weeks the trees will be bare. Cold and naked like my soul. I'm...

    It Just Does.

    I listen to music most of the time, not because I'm experiencing problems or whatever negative things are going against me in life, But because it just gives my soul a beat to go by, or for me to think clearly. I've lost about 100 pairs of headphones, my soul eats them for...

    Music was given to stir the soul.

    I often think of King David and his worship, and his Psalms, and how important music was in his life. Not just "life" but spiritual life too. The entire book of Psalms is nearly all David baring his soul with music. There is a reason that we are made to not just hear music, but...

    Healing Songs

    I think music can heal the soul. It is truly amazing how it can put you in a good mood in a matter of seconds. It can be either chanting or nature sounds or just instruments playing. Either way it makes one feel so peaceful and collected.

    One of my escapes is to listen to music.

    Wide ranging tastes but all with a theme of transporting the mind away from all the stresses of life. Contemporary or classical, I enjoy lots. Awolnation, Haim, Vampire weekend, U2, Guns n roses, Holst, so so many. Always interested in new ideas
