I slipped away last week for a long weekend in New Jersey. There was some (private) business to attend to but there was also built in time with a few friends. Not enough time and I didn’t get to see everyone, but I saw who I could with the time I had and that’s what counts.
Friday was a really long, semi-painful day and by evening time, I was more than happy to escape out to an old hangout to see my friends’ band play. The time catching up a bit before they played was so welcome but even more so, so was the live music the whole evening.
It’s been awhile since I’ve seen any live music and every time I do, I’m reminded why I need more of it in my life.
The world’s so fast and nothing lasts
Let’s save it while we can
When the music floats right over you like a wave in the sea, you can’t help but be drawn in time and time again.
As I sat on the floor in my friend’s guest room Saturday afternoon listening to “Beautiful Lies,” I just felt insanely connected. To the music, the lyrics, and the moment.
I wish that I had the strength to let go, but I don’t
The past week has been overwhelming in many ways and I continue to find myself questioning many different directions, paths, and choices.
What song are you feeling connected to right now?
