I love the rain and I think that getting an hour everyday to listen to music, familiar and new, would let me reset again and make me ready for the day. I really want to find a song that feels right to sing during the rains. A song that would do justice to how beautiful I feel when I see, hear and rest with the rain.
I love silence, not all silences, but most are very calming. My ears ring a bit when I hear silence. A single note I can't recognise because I haven't put in the effort to. It's a fairly annoying ringing but it's alright. I love how my thoughts become clear and loud and not just white noise at the back of my head.
I love to hear the birds chirp. They make very pretty sounds which make me joyous. During the morning and evening, I hear them making melodious noises, which are so much more comforting than my own. We don't have enough birds around our home. I really hope that there comes a day when I reach such a state of mind and serenity of soul, that a bird or two would come hopping and trotting to me. Maybe sit on my shoulder or stay comfortably close to me. Maybe we could sing together. That would be wonderful.
I don't like alot of things about the world. Many concepts really frustrate me and many more I absolutely hate. There is so much to be afraid of. There is so much to lose. But the pieces of the world that I love terrifically outweigh the parts I hate.
"With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world.
Strive to be happy. "
The last stanza of one of my favourite poems, Desiderata, by Max Ehrmann.
I hope it rains again tomorrow.
