When I asked questions, I found out more people had been homeless in their lives than I would ever have imagined. Oh no!
I keep realizing that I do not know as much as I thought I did.
My feelings get me stuck and perturbed or else terrified. I think of what could happen and I just freeze.
So today is going to be a Fearless Friday for me.
That means I am going to forgive myself for being a scaredy cat.
I will still be careful and wear my mask.
But I am not going to be paralyzed by what other people might think.
I will be proudly weird. I will keep on feeling kindness and enjoy giving that back in reams. I will just keep on loving people, being curious, interested, and complimenting people who are doing things I could never do.
I can be fearless when I love.
All of the great music ever made was made fearlessly and in love, whether that love produced agony or ecstasy. Hey Beethoven! You gave us Fur Elyse. You pined away for someone you couldn't have. But then you turned around and produced Ode to Joy. You lost your hearing. But you never lost your passion.
I hate pain. I hate reading about how people and animals suffer in this world.
It's wrong. I have to keep standing up for love, stay bright. I am making songs to sing my love. My love is Blue and True. I am loyal. I want to give.
I can do this.
And I will.
And I will celebrate everyone who keeps on making art in a loving way.
This is the best we human beings can give the world.
If you are reading this, thank you for your empathy.
Did you know it has gotten me through these Covid-lonely months?
I love you and I will keep on living my musical life as an expression of that love.
