Loss and grief, at some time in our lives, we all come face to face with the pain of loss…. we feel engulfed in a sadness that reverberates in every miniscule part of our BEing. No words seem to penetrate into the core of the void. Vince Gill wrote the above song when his brother passed away, from his grief came a beautiful song that will be enjoyed for years to come..
Music is a universal language it has a voice/meaning for anyone who is open to the message. Interestingly the message/what is heard, may not have anything at all to do with the lyrics. I’ve seen myself how music will affect someone, and yet when asked how they liked the song, they heard only the music. In other instances I’ve heard people diss a song because of the words, they picked up on, their thought process never got past the words, At one time I wanted to share, so I tried to explain or have the person see or hear what I was hearing. didn’t work. We are all unique, just as no two people will interpret a dance the same way, each of us will respond in our own way to the ticking of a clock…
Just got a new clock (to me) I bought it because it looks like a retro old plastic radio clock of the 50’s/60’s, it ticks… all the other clocks in the house are quiet, i.e. on the computer. or are electric. There is something to be said about the rhythm of a ticking clock…. life is like a clock, it moves along a tick at a time, tick,toc, the seconds pass by. It is amazing how quickly life is given and/or taken away.
We grow by overcoming obstacles, one by one, tick, toc…. tick..toc.. Sometimes we feel that we are like a rock, we are going nowhere, we don’t see the sunshine, nor do we feel the rain, we exist. In PL we believe that we are alive, rain or shine, life is for living, we know sadness because we have been happy, the joy and passion of life is all around us, we need only move on to the next second on the clock. Trust in God, Believe, let go of what you think happiness is, enjoy the life that is yours and in you. Problems/challenges are opportunities.
