Have you ever been truly present in a moment and you never, ever wanted it to end?
It could be a creative spurt of energy, a loving relationship, a new and exciting job, a gathering of kind friends, a fun vacation, a conversation of past memories, even the simple loving embrace of a dear relative.
Well, the moving along of life sometimes gets in the way, and no matter how much you want to hold onto that beautiful moment, it can still slip past you and the experience, along with the joy, moves on. I am not sure why. Maybe it makes you appreciate and long for the moments that are spectacular and truly heart thumping and important?
Yes, bits of time move like waves from the ocean….bringing different perspectives with each wave that settles on the shore. They can be crashing and blasting, or simple, soft laps of water. Whichever one occurs, it is a pretty spectacular miracle.
Naturally, all moments ebb like the waves return to the sea. You wish for the feeling of joy to come again. Although, sometimes you may feel as if you could be waiting for a lifetime. You can either choose to find solace in the waiting, or just worry and doubt that it may never come your way or the same way, again. I choose to be patient.
I love the unpredictable flow of life and know, without question, that it may be an hour, a day, or even years, but incredible moments will eventually happen again.
I say that with sincere certainty.
I will never give in to the fear of worry and fret. I am hard wired that way and find a beautiful contentedness in knowing deep down that happiness will always come back around. Don’t get me wrong, I have experienced those life crushing blows, but those harsh moments in time have helped me realize that they too will eventually pass and joy will work its way back again.
Hardships and fear, will pass.
When they do, it makes room for those spectacular moments to occur, perhaps, randomly and without any warning. I like it that way. Glass half full, rose colored glasses, okay maybe, but they serve me happily. Sometimes I just have to be patient for my glass to fill up again or occasionally rub a soft cloth on my lenses to clear them.
This song, “Kiss Me Again” by The Drums is spotlighting one of those amazing moments in time.
Jonny Pierce and Jacob Graham of The Drums sing about that butterfly in your stomach happiness that occurs when you kiss someone you love. It is a happy song from a couple of guys who confess they are never really happy, Admittedly growing up always feeling like losers and outcasts, it is spectacular to find them singing and begging for joy to stay forever. Throughout the new album, you listen to other songs where the lyrics leave you a little heartbroken at the struggles and sadness they describe, but, the music makes you want to dance. A contrast for sure. Isn’t life that way?
Ebb and flow, ebb and flow. The entire new album, Encyclopedia, by The Drums is one of exploring and experimentation. Because of my internal nature and my tendency to look through those rosy glasses, I just had to feature this sweet song that shines a light on a wonderful moment in time that you never, ever want to end.
