This Music Monday will be special. I want to write you a little something about this piece of music and how it’s effected me. The wonderful thing about music for me (and anyone who puts a value on music) is that it affects everyone different. It can show you things it can’t show me, might never show me. Each piece of music brings something unique and special to each individual person. You, You know me. Somehow you know who I am or have a story on how you got to the point of reading these words. Regardless if we’ve never spoken, maybe we spoke yesterday or three years ago. I want you to go and grab your nicest pair of headphones, because you’ll need them. Forget the present and whatever past we have and listen to this song. Please listen to this song, close your eyes and feel this song. This will take a small amount of commitment to relaxing and letting it show you something as it has me. This song brings me to one of those moments. I can sit back, close my eyes and let it all melt away. I can let this music show me something unique and special. It reminds me of a time when Diversa and Oneira rocked my world with Pillars of Creation.
I remember the first time I heard Pillars of Creation by Diversa. I remember the exact location, how I was sitting, the headphones I was using and the phone I was streaming it with. I listened to that song no less than 15 times in a row. I couldn’t stop, it was showing me what I needed to see in those moments. I needed something from music and those two wonderful people gave it to me. Those gorgeous vocals and melody formed something so special that it will live in my heart and mind forever.
This song is one of those moments, and hopefully it will be for you as well. This song is forever a special song.
