Hi beautiful ones, I woke up inspired to share some thoughts below that will hopefully have some meaning for you too. They come from my little beach town full of sunshine & ocean breezes that has truly changed and softened me these last few years. So take it or leave it... ;) * A Melody Emerges There's a sign along the beach pathway that says, 'Sensitive Habitat-- Stay On Trail'. I get it, wish I could grab the sign and take it with me. The sky is grey and dismal, and the crows are cawing loudly, playing games in the trees above me. I take a sip of my latte, it is morning, 7am'ish, and I can hear the Surfliner train passing through. The smell of sea is close, ahh, but crowds of chaos swarm my mind. All this self pressure and expectation, old familial & societal rules jammed up bumper to bumper in my head again. 'STOP', my higher, better, or other self says to this part... just STOP. 'But if only I did it this way, or that, or...'' Stop. Breathe. Listen. I hear a bass line, or sometimes just a note, an inner chord: We are never done, we are always evolving. We are someone apart from all that we do (or have not done) and this is our essence. This is our BEing. This is the part of us that never dies. Feed it. Nurture it. BE with it... Of course, I know this. I write it. I sing about it. But god knows I have to re-member it daily. Like a mother to myself, I have to pick up my own heart and hold it, rock it, say nice things to it, sing lullabies to it and kiss it. Silly? Yeah, but it works. Try it. Suddenly a melody emerges. I pick up my guitar, start humming, look outside to the trees and awaken. It's as if a tribe of nature has been waiting all along for one soul at a time to recognize it's gentle part in this symphony of 'Us'... and tears come to me as the music rises again, and I can't help but feel the beauty of all that our eyes have not yet seen. You Already Gold, Yo! Thanks for stopping by. Love you guys~ Andi www.andistarr.com New Album Available on Itunes!!: http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/the-world-will-follow/id443434685
