The Power of Music.

Following on from a recent post of mine “A Few of My Favourite Things”, I am now able to fit snugly into my (UK) size 8 jeans due to cherishing numerous chocolate cakes and being ever so gently kissed by the sun’s warm embrace.

The other day it dawned on me that I am getting closer to the light at the end of this tunnel that I have been in for the past year. Confidence that was once lost is once again being found, the courage within me is once again strengthening all the while cherishing even more so the time shared with each and every being.

“After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music.” – Aldous Huxley

Music is also another favourite of mine which has been beneficial yet in order for me to heal further and move forwards; I would like to share with you, two of my favourite songs that I signed along especially to, for after silence, sign language is also the nearest next to music that makes one able to express themselves fluidly as actions speak louder than words.

“Music produces a kind of pleasure which human nature cannot do without.” – Confucius

“Can’t help falling in Love” by UB40

“Baby, can I hold you tonight?” by Tracy Chapman.

“The earth has music for those who listen” – Shakespeare.

There is music, in each and everything if you know where to look and/or listen. One of my favourite kinds of music has to be within Mother Nature. For example watching the blowing leaves or the long green grass swaying along, dancing gently in the wind. Naturally a truly calming experience.

“Don’t walk behind me; I may not lead. Don’t walk in front of me; I may not follow. Just walk besides me and be my friend.” – Albert Camus

Might I add, as equals.

On that note, to all those “friends” who taught me who/what not to be and to those new found friends of whom lately have become so dear to me, not to forget our followers too – for you have all unknowingly been supporting me along this road to recovery, in order to be me again. I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone in the Tree House, for being there. Thank you, more than you realise – for saving me. I will be there for you too.

P.S. if you cannot find me, it is because I am hiding away due to sharing my videos! (That I made last summer)

One thought on “The Power of Music.

  1. I’ve never seen much point being deaf of ‘watching’ music,what is the point ? Basically and like most gone deaf my memory will only recall music as when I used to hear it, so music appreciation even via subtitling will stop at the same point my hearing did, so when you understand I have been 40 years deaf and not much hearing before that music is dead to me. I am deterred by my literacy ! it would appear modern music is not written by literate people but 5 yr olds who repeat everything. Quite obviously the point is in melody,and dare I suggest a quality in the singing voice too ? Without percussion and bass deaf would never ‘tune in’ to anything. As an ex-musician I know they miss so much of the actual point of music, I wonder why they bother when they cannot tell an Elvis tune from a Pavarotti one. The voice is an instrument too, so deaf become unable to discern the good from the plain awful, but so long as they can feel the beat and bass nothing else matters. Being ex-hearing did it for me, now there is just no point,because I KNOW what is missing.
