Going with the Flow

In the hurried pace at which many of us live, we often forget to take time to smell the roses. I know that I do. Thanksgiving Day is a difficult day for many of us as it brings back memories of departed loved ones with whom we used to celebrate the day and it can bring forth thoughts of those with whom we'd like to share the day but, for any of a number of reasons, can't.

There isn't only one way to handle melancholic feelings. This morning, I chose to do something that I haven't done in too long a time: I listened to music that I love.

Although I'm dating myself by saying who one of my all-time favorite ballad singers is, I must admit that I can't resist listening to Johnny Mathis sing songs like "Begin the Beguine", "Misty", "How Do You Keep the Music Playing", "Too Much Too Little Too Late" and many others. Music absolutely stirs my emotions. For example, I can never listen to "How Do You Keep the Music Playing" without crying. It's an astoundingly beautiful song with meaningful lyrics and, if you've never heard it, I suggest you go to You Tube and download Johnny Mathis' version of the song. You won't be sorry. On the other end of the spectrum, Pharrell Williams' "Happy" always has its intended effect on me, which is to make me feel happy. A couple of years ago, I went to a jazz performance with a friend. As I love jazz and as I especially enjoyed the arrangements the musicians performed, I told my friend that listening to jazz transports me. I wasn't exaggerating.

There is nothing wrong with allowing ourselves to feel all of our emotions, even the more unpleasant ones. That means, of course, that sometimes we can feel melancholic or nostalgic. For me, it's both soothing and cathartic to listen to music that reflects my mood. For some, it's fine art; for others, it's dance. Any of the arts, nature, sports, food, etc., can transport us.

Sometimes it's best to just go with the flow until the mood passes. While you're going with the flow, why not immerse yourself in your favorite music?

Since it's still Thanksgiving Day, for those of you who mistakenly think that you have nothing to be thankful for, I have something for you: BE THANKFUL THAT YOU WEREN'T BORN A TURKEY!

Happy Thanksgiving Day!

The flow is the sea of enormous insight. The substance conveys everything. The stream is life vitality itself. Taking the path of least resistance is reacting to signals from the universe. When you accept circumstances for what they are, you're surfing Life drive.

As what is good for the gander is good for the goose, why not let good old Ephraim Inoni benefit from this very same largesse? His account published a few days ago should pay off his debt without much loss of sleep.
