escape hatch

They say that when one whom seeks peace they must learn how to quiet their mind.


For me that works...some of the time.


For the other times that it doesn't I need music to do it for me.


I do have a favorite genre but my playlist is eclectic to say the least.


Sometimes I need some tunes to help me find some peace.


It could be some old school R&B or mellow jazz.


I'll listen to anything from hip-hop to bebop.




As long as it has the right beat.
 As long as the chorus moves me.




As long as the percussion soothes me.


As long as it can speak to my soul or spark up a nostalgic memory that has been laying dormant and waiting to escape.


I'll zone out and just let the music speak to me.


I'll tap my toes and get in-tune with the vibe.


I'll let the melody intrigue me until I feel revived.


After I've listened to my song I feel more alive.


music  removes mental blocks.


Music can lift you out of a rut .


Music can loosen  you up.


I a perfect world I would spend more time in my headsets and less time in mess.


Music is life.
Music is relief.
Music is report.
Music is all encompassing and it is embedded in us all.


We all have our favorite kinds of music.


You can admire or loath  person's.
Music can be your prison or it can be your escape.

note to self

Sometimes it's ok not to be ok.


Sometimes it's alright not to have all the answers.


Sometimes it's alright to show your vulnerable  side.


Starting from square one doesn't make you  a failure.


Everyone has insecurities.




We all experience loss.


We all deal with an invisible pain.
Some suffer in silence.


Some  try to redistribute the hurt by lashing out while others will cover it up with a smile.


Its ok not be ok.


When your not ok just acknowledge it to yourself


You can choose what you wish to show other but you can not deceive yourself.


Don't cheat yourself.


Treat yourself.


Because at the end of the day all you truly have is yourself.

Nature walk

Sometimes I just want to be alone and observe nature and ponder its vast mysteries.


If the wind could speak I wonder what types of things it would have to say?


Would it whisper insightful nuggets of knowledge or would it bellow out in a hate filled rage.


I wonder.




If water is the source for all life then what would it drink when it's  thirst needs to quenched.


Why does the feel of grainy sand squishing in-between your toes feel so good.


I wonder






Why do sunsets appear so  lovely while moonless sky can seem so desolate.


I wonder.



Is me or doesn't seem like the insects are harmonizing a tune a tune when the sunsets.


I wonder


Peaks and valleys.




Mountains and streams


shimmering dew drops in kissed by the morning light.


What comes first....lighting or thunder


I wonder.
