Beautiful Otherness…

“Something’s” will forever remain beyond our comprehension.

As such is love and everything it necessitates…

  1. Miss Martel,

    Even though I may have initially distasted such choices in music after having listened to metal and classical music for much of my life, I have come to find that there is beauty in this type of music that you post. Many years ago I would have never considered listening to genres I disliked. I remember you writing that music was a very important aspect in your life and have duly noted it here with your posts. I have to say that your choices are always pleasant and are a nice change of perspective for someone like me who has not had much musical variety in their life 😉 There is definitely a certain profundity and power that music conveys. It is able to express ideas and the most transcendental aspects of life without any words. It allows the artists to display a higher concept of life with blissful ease and purity. This way, the artist can express themselves directly to the listener without any ambiguity. It is a beautiful thing really.

    I appreciate your choices and everything that you have done. They do not go unnoticed, something that is woefully apparent in today’s contemporary landscape. Keep being who you are and expressing yourself in the way you do.


  2. Sir William,

    First, let me say that I am sincerely and deeply honored to have such a comment. Funny timing that you have. I initially started this blog as a way to gather my thoughts in a bit of a more organized manner. I was beginning to feel I had “wasted” my time. By nature, I am extremely private and to even go this far has challenged me greatly. Nevertheless, comments such as yours at least affirm part of why I do this. Partially, I do it for my own knowledge or as a base to come back to in order to think. But, part of it is also for others to perhaps even gain just the slightest insight to something of value. Many times people get caught up in their own “comfort bubbles” and fail to see the beauty and true “life forces” that surround them. This beauty may not always take the form one might expect. Being honest…with yourself about this is harder than most can perceive. We may expect certain things and then become highly disappointed when we do not “find” them. This can especially be said towards people who think deeply. While these expectations are a good thing, they also limit our ability to see outside ourselves. I have seen this personally many times, through many types of people, in many different settings. Myself experiencing it as well. The common theme always being, that one is looking in the wrong place (that is, if they are even looking). The fine balance between staying “open to possibility” and “sticking to one’s convictions” often becomes blurred. Enter in modern society and it can be interpreted in the most vile ways(aka, do whatever you please to because you are “open-minded”). It reminds me of the quote “None so blind as those that cannot see”, or something to that effect. Anyhow, more often than many will admit, they get trapped one way or the other instead of trying HARD to find the balance. This is where I at the very least TRY HARD to be different. I constantly am challenging my own “idea of me” and my own perception versus what is “reality”. This is where your comment means much to me: For someone to acknowledge that they see some of that means a lot. I am EXTREMELY detail oriented and most if not all of what I do is rooted in deep thought. I take life seriously as I have been hyper-aware of what it means to have the gift of life. and choice. Nothing I put here or practice in my daily life is “random”. I put a lot of work into all that I do and all that I am. So, it goes to say that you may not even know the severity with which you have spoken. I truly do appreciate the comment.

    On the music, it just is an extension of my soul…many different facets there. There I know I am not alone!

    Oh and William…no worries, I have and always will keep doing what I have. Its never been any different! Just maybe the “medium of expression” may change over time. 😉
