It’s fascinating how, sometimes, the most silent places can awaken the most disturbing thoughts. There’s nothing moving around you but inside…well, that’s another story. Your thoughts become a storm inside you. Millions of words, pictures, memories, worries, hopes and fears are shaking every last piece of you and you wonder how you will ever get out of there. You think of choices but nothing seems right. You look for a way out but…
There’s nothing but silence. Deafening silence.
Listen to this! This song is a rollercoaster. Just like life. You’re gonna have a lot of surprises along the way. Some amazing ones, others….really shitty. Unexpected stuff will catch you with your pants down plenty of times. Don’t worry too much about it! You’ll sort things out when they happen.
Fall in love! Day dream! Make friends! Suffer if you must! Cry! Laugh from your core! Love your heart out! Get drunk! Sing out loud! Dance whenever and wherever you feel like it! Smile at strangers! Be humble! Don’t be grumpy too much. Nobody likes that! Be optimistic! Know that things can always be worse! Appreciate everything! Don’t hold a grudge! When you decide to forgive, forget as well! If you know you cannot forgive, then don’t. Put a stop and turn a new page! Don’t ever hold others responsible for your mistakes! That sucks! Help people when you can! Don’t be a wiseass! Let some things go but don’t let others slip away! Be honest! Be smart! If you must lie, don’t get caught! Fight for what matters to you! Even with me. Be patient! Things have a way of working out. Don’t ever be ashamed of what you are!
I will always want your best and I will always want you to be safe. It’s how parents are programmed so I won’t be able to help it! But listen carefully when I’m saying this:
Don’t listen to me all the time! Safe sucks sometimes. Safe might keep you from some very cool, unforgettable moments and I don’t want you to miss out on anything. I trust I raised you to know when some risks are worth taking!
Enjoy the ride kid! I’ll be there to smack you back to reality once in a while.
P.S. Have a fucking good time 99% of your time! Oh…and if I turn too much into a „mom”, show this to me. I’ll snap out of it! Cross my heart.
I must admit that until today I had no idea who sang this song. But it sure makes me want to get up and dance when I hear it.
„Once upon a time there was a boy who loved a girl, and her laughter was a question he wanted to spend his whole life answering.” —Nicole Krauss, The History of Love
I absolutely love this song. I cannot express how many states of mind it puts me through. I don’t listen to it very often because some days it brings more emotion than I can handle.
If you listen to it carefully you will hear a wake up call. A wake up call for those of you who hide behind your feelings. For those of you who would like to speak up but are reduced to silence by fear. This is it! This is the wake up call for those afraid to take the next step. For those terrified to take a chance.
This song is my wake up call.
The theme of this winter’s last week is: If you had to play one song for your kid so that s/he will remember it forever, what would that be?
Why are we programmed to always want what we cannot have? We get used to the things we have. We misjudge their value. We think our happiness lies on what we do not have but strive to gain. Is it the hunt? The illusion that that is better that this? The hope it will make us happier?
I wonder if happy people think the grass is greener on the other side. Probably not. I bet they don’t even notice the grass over there.
Do you believe in soulmates? Do you believe there is just one person in this world who you are meant to be with? One person who understands you? One person who sees you for who you really are? One person who can make you laugh even when you’re furious? One person who you could never be mad at? Only one?
What if you don’t ever meet? Or worse…what if they are someone else’s when they are in fact supposed to be yours? What if they are right in front of you, within your reach…but so far away? What then? Do you fight? Or do you move on and hope to find the next best thing?
Dangerous, frightening thoughts, aren’t they?
No answers. No opinions. No thoughts on what to do.

A remix is a piece of media which has been altered from its original state by adding, removing, and/or changing pieces of the item. A song, piece of artwork, book, video, or photograph can all be remixes. The only characteristic of a remix is that it appropriates and changes other materials to create something new.
What about people? What do you call a person which has been altered from its original state by adding, removing, and/or changing pieces of them?
Undecided? Fake? Disloyal? Tired? Opportunistic?
Is change bad?
Kiss me hard before you go.
I ask questions when I want to know things. I never ask the question if I cannot handle the answer. I don’t like having doubts. Games…I like even less.
When I stop asking questions, you should start.
Those who shall ask questions shall be punished. Severely.
Those who don’t … will live a long, clueless and ignorant happiness.
Pick a side.
Sometimes it is the people who no one imagines anything of, who do the things that no one can imagine.
