A playlist to incite peace of mind.
Whether it is the lyrics, the instrumentation or both.
I put this playlist together to incite catharsis.
Not because I have the solution to yours or the world’s problems.
Not because I have all of the answers.
I am also human like yourself,
I also feel weary sometimes.
Sometimes more so than other times.
I have to find peace within what I can’t control.
I can’t control the state of the world.
I can’t control the actions of others.
I can’t control the future.
I can’t control the past.
So I practice finding peace in the present.
I do this through many forms of release.
Writing, speaking, creating and sharing.
Sharing music is an act of love.
Listening to good music,
is an act of self love.
I love, love.
I love humanity.
I love being able to both receive and share,
the gift of expression.
That is why in this often harsh world,
today I share a playlist to incite peace of mind.
It may be only for an hour, a day, a week.
Maybe the beginning of a lifetime.
It is beautiful beginning regardless.
