My Favorite Place

In Prose, Stories, secrets & dreams on July 20, 2012 at 8:16 am

Many places fill me with joy. I love my city – New York, as well as new places to connect with new landscapes, peoples, foods, and cultures. All that aside, by far, my favorite place to be is ensconced in music.

Physically I can be anywhere, but mentally, I am in a state of pure bliss. Mind you, this doesn’t happen anytime I hear music. That could be a blessing or a curse. Rather, this happens when I am engaged with the music. Sometimes through singing and understanding, relaying, and simultaneously feeling the intricacies of the harmonies. Sometimes I am engaged for nostalgic reasons. A song can bring me back to high school or earlier childhood in mere seconds. Sometimes I am overwhelmed by sentimental lyrics. Other times I am moved simply because I am moved.

My body refuses to stay still, and is manipulated by the rhythm.

For these reasons, wrapped in music, is my favorite place to be.
