Music is My life

Aquarius Horoscope for week of February 16, 2012

Verticle Oracle cardAquarius (January 20-February 19)
Jeep vehicles always feature seven slots on their front grills. Why? For the manufacturer, it’s a symbolic statement proclaiming the fact that Jeep was the first vehicle driven on all seven continents. Let’s take that as your cue, Aquarius. Your assignment is to pick an accomplishment you’re really proud of and turn it into an emblem, image, glyph, or talisman that you can wear or express. If nothing else, draw it on dusty car windows, write it on bathroom walls, or add it to a Facebook status update. The key thing is that you use a public forum to celebrate yourself for a significant success, even if it’s in a modest or mysterious way.

This is my horoscope for this week and it made me pause and think, “What is the one thing I am most proud of in this life?”. The answer came to me instantly, music. Music is the one thing I have always felt closest to, it inundates so many facets of my life and the clef note is such a pretty, exemplary symbol that I chose it to represent myself. I may not be the best musician but it is something I have always loved for the love of doing it, it’s never been about money, prestige, or accolades. 

This is a link to a song we did last year. It is a cover of “Rhiannon” by Stevie Nicks, I hope you enjoy it.

Facing the Changes

Facing the Changes

All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy; for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves; we must die to one life before we can enter another. Anatole France

Things have changed so rapidly in my life, it seems, in just a few short weeks. There are so many new and exciting challenges I must face, yet these same challenges frighten me. Every part of my world has just been turned upside down. The challenges are coming in my relationships with the people I love the most, my chosen career, and school is always a challenge. I am trying to be a strong person and face these changes with courage, yet there are times when I feel quite overwhelmed and would just like to curl up in bed, pull the covers over my head and say “To hell with it!”  But, I am a fighter, always have been and always will be. I am not one to just take shit and eat it politely with a knife and a fork. So, I say to life “bring it”, watch how this sister rolls and be prepared for the biggest battle you have ever lost because I will walk away from this and whether I win or lose I will be proud of myself for making the effort.
