Wow! What a Summer it's been. I've really enjoyed having a slow summer (mostly) this year, and am looking forward to continuing this practice of planning slow time with my family.
Over the last month or so, I've been seeing a lot of shifts in my focus for my business, and work, and am excited to announce that I'll be writing a column for One Thousand Trees Online Magazine. This month is the first entry. You'll find the start of the article below. Click HERE to read the whole article. Once you have, come on back and join the conversation in the comments. I'd love to hear from you!
The Music Of Life
Welcome, to The Music of Life. Some of the most important connections of our lives, those we form with ourselves throughout life, as well as those we form with our families and friends, are being lost in this modern world of “social” media, minimalism, and keeping up with society. I hope, through this column, to remind my readers of all that matters, and help them re-establish their bonds with life, memories, mementos, and traditions.
Music weaves and flows through our lives, sometimes so subtly as to almost be unnoticeable, yet it has the power to invoke every emotion imaginable, conjure memories of the past, and create dreams for the future. The radio, always present, can, for me at least, send me on a roller coaster ride of emotions as different to each other as the songs that trigger them. Terry Jack’s Seasons In The Sun; sends me scrambling to change the station quick, before I succumb to the inevitable tears the lyrics cause. The familiar chorus of; ‘take me home, country roads, to the place, I belong…’ will always conjure a memory of riding in my Mum’s Plymouth Valiant as we rolled down yes…a country road…past the fields surrounding our home, as will “tie a yellow ribbon round the old oak tree…’. Most of us will have our own memory and emotional triggers from music, but if I ask you if you’re feeling like you’re Walking on Sunshine, or if you have the Eye of the Tiger, chances are good you know exactly what I’m talking about.
