I may have mentioned on previous occasions that I love music. Well at the moment, it is the drug of choice to get me through a rather tough patch. I seem to be alternating between a few albums that are uplifting and remind me to keep going.
There’s nothing particularly meaningful about each of the albums, and the lyrics (if there are any, which is a rarity), carry no significance. It’s just that the music blocks out things that I don’t have the energy to deal with. Probably the biggest one is conversation. If I’ve got my headphones on, then the world is closeted away and that’s it.
I find listening to music is a key part of my senses, probably close to the smell of something evoking memories for someone. Music does exactly the same for me. With each piece of music I seem to encapsulate something positive (or on the rare occasion, something negative). So anyway, each piece of music is important to me.
The downside of this is that when everything is done, some pieces of music can become tainted with memories that are sour. Listening to that piece of music can then become a bit of an issue. It recalls all kinds of things that I want to forget. So anyway, I’m using the new Above & Beyond Group Therapy (ironic in so many respects) and Anjunadeep 03 album as my mental walking stick. I’m leaning on them and using them for much needed support.
