Music Writing

Crystal Bats – Anyone

I have been pretty uninspired by a lot of music I have been hearing the past week or so, nothing has really sparked my interest or made me feel like writing, but then this 80’s inspired jam fell into my lap and it made me feel really good, I am a sucker for anything that screams 80’s, it’s in my blood, and it was an amazing decade in time.

I watched Passengers last night, that film that is suppose to be sometime in the future where we can travel to a different planet and have a better life. I heard it was bad but was hoping otherwise since I refuse to listen to reviews on movies and I love Chris Pratt and JLaw, but unfortunately the reviews were right and it was not worth the 6.99 I paid to rent it on itunes.  Since I am a writer, an actor, a musician and a life coach I was able to find significance in this movie that made the whole premise salvageable. Two people have each other, and only each other (in a sense the last two people on earth or in space in this case).  These are two people that might not otherwise look twice at each other in the real world but somehow they work well together and find a love with one another that is rare.  This was the part of the movie I enjoyed, the love situation between these two characters in a terrible situation, making the best of the situation, not faking it and actually finding the best in what they have in front of them.

Sometimes we think that there is only one type of person for us, maybe we are always falling into the arms of the wrong person because we are always putting ourselves in the exact same situations.  These two people went completely out of the world that they know and found love with one another, so for someone like me who has been single for 2 years, yes this has been my choice, no sex, no intimacy, and I am realizing when I am ready to find someone it has to be somewhere that I would never expect, I need to run full blast outside of my comfort zone.  You are probably reading this and going, “TWO YEARS”, yup, I know!  But if I am being honest, which I am 100 percent of the time, I haven’t missed it, I needed this long break from intimacy and worrying about another human being besides my daughter.  I needed to heal from years of lies and broken love.  I am healed now, so the doors are open to me and I need to start walking through doors in which I am completely unfamiliar.

Shout out to feel good 80’s inspired music, Summer time, new love and running full speed into unfamiliar territory!
