"Love is patient, love is kind, and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant, does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things."
one of the things i love in my life is music. it has always been a transponder for me. i have always been able to be lifted from wherever i am to a different place and for me that is a blessing. many times i have found myself in situations that are worse than horrifying. and music has always been there to take me away. safely and with lightspeed i have been lifted. it helps me laugh, it helps me cry, it soothes my nerves, it perks me up.
growing up in a small town as a gay boy was challenging for me. i had endured some personal traumas and through music i discovered a way to feel less different and less of a freak amid my peers. my relationship with music has continued to be a blessing over the years. i hope i can always have it in my life. i remember dancing, or tumbling more like, it under the stars during the summers while i was in grade school. i know that i heard music in my head and i know that the music helped me dance and feel as if i was somewhere else. funny thing- when i read the biography of isadora duncan i found out she used to do the very same thing. i guess i love dancing, too.
Music affects mood and emotion more than any other medium, and has the power to change the way we view the world.
