Well let me start off by saying that I was first officially introduced to Train by a friend when I lived in California several years ago and I instantly loved the beautiful mix of poetry and music. I can relate to all of the songs, as I'm sure many of us can...I feel so deeply, no matter what my feelings are or what they're fueled by and music is a major outlet for me. I feel blessed that I am able to appreciate these things in life, even when the feelings are not happy ones - it's still a blessing to be able to feel.
So back to my friend...we danced together in the garage to Train - she is such a beautiful, free spirit. Sadly, we lost touch over the years, due to the craziness of life itself; and yesterday, I felt an urge to try to reconnect with her after recently finding a card she had sent to me a few years ago. When I googled her name, her Trainline profile came up. How amaziing! I didn't even know this existed. I've been pouring through everyone's blogs and posts and I think this is such an amazing community of people and artists...and people who love art!
I'm excited to be a part of it all and finally have an outlet for my own poetry, feelings, and writing. I'm not sure why, but I have this feeling that I can be free to be myself here, without fear -- and that is something I desperately need.
With the sudden storms that have hit my life recently, this discovery couldn't have come at a better time. Music is a great form of therapy for me, as is writing. How perfect!
Today I feel grateful for life, for opportunities, for friendship, for LOVE...and even for the pain.
Thanks for allowing me to become a part of your community :)
