For today’s #joyfuljan, I find joy in music.
Keeping with the theme of today spanning across my many blogs, I am finding immense joy today in music. Sometimes I will go several days in a row without listening to any music. It all depends on what kind of writing I will be doing that day. On the days that I do slip over to Youtube and turn on a playlist, my ears are quite happy.
I am always amused at people’s reactions when they discover the type of music I listen to. I frequently get “but you are such a light in the world. How can you listen to such dark music and still give out so much good?” Ah well, you see, I believe you can only give light when you know the darkness and my soul can be quite dark at times. Instead of shying away from darkness, I embrace it. I’ve led a dismal life and dark music speaks to me. Here is one of my favorite dark songs…. When I was deeply depressed, this song actually lifted me up some. I guess it had the opposite effect.
So yes, music gives me great joy today and every day.
