guitar in sand, canon digital rebel xti
boho boy and i just got home from seeing the film Once. it is one of the most moving, genuine and touching films i've ever experienced. a friend suggested it last week, telling me it was a gentle film. i figured gentle was just about what we needed right now. she was so right. what a perfect description.
it has inspired both of us to make music together. he has been writing some music for a song and wants me to write the lyrics. i've never done that before. i've written poetry but never lyrics. i think it's time to open up my heart to write...and also to sing again. i used to love to sing but was always so shy about it. my husband thinks i have a beautiful voice but i have battled with a scar all my life from someone once telling me i was tone deaf as a child. then i joined choir in high school and was told i had a good ear for someone who didn't yet grasp notes. i sang at graduation. i sang in college...but that scar still lingered and continues to do so. it has prevented me from truly singing out loud with abandon...unless i was alone.
i felt the scar melting away today. as he was playing his guitar and i was humming a melody that flowed through me...something awakened within. so much of this ties in with me finding my voice that i've mentioned in my last few posts. perhaps this is another piece of it.
it can be another medium for us to express ourselves on this journey, helping us recognize that we truly are always conceiving together. today it is melodies...
