A Retelling of Life

Sleep and 8tracks

There was a time in my life when I used my 100 peso daily allowance to buy tapes of my fave albums. I would then have to scrimp to survive the week but it didn’t matter. The days i spent basking in the sound of Damien Rice’s Wishful Thinking or Savage Garden’s Sta. Monica more than made up for the hotdog and pancit canton-eating days.

These days, I find myself drawn to music again. It’s as if my left brain decided to reassert itself again. With the help of 8tracks, music is making a resurgence in my life.

I remember how hubby used to write the lyrics of his fave love songs on old fashioned stationery. He would then send it to me and I would be tickled pink reading it. The ways of courtship has changed since the arrival of social networking sites but one thing that has remained constant is the connection between love and music. I am in love with my hubby and this beautiful baby growing inside of me. I am glad that when I feel overwhelmed by this love and joy I feel, I have music to accompany me. In my bed, listening to my good morning sunshine mix, I find myself wiping blissful tears streaming by my face. At these moments I feel at peace, I am one with our Creator.

Thank you Lord. Thank you for all the goodness in this world.
