My Lyfestyle Through Lyrics
I’m easily self amused. The littlest things in my life inspire me. Be it music, movies, daily encounters, the way blades of grass move as the wind blows, I’m likely to write about, not only those things, but also about any and everything. No one and nothing is safe. I’ve always found that writing comes easily to me thanks to a childhood of journaling, but I get writer’s block too (I’m human). I understand and respect the intracacies and complexities that go into writing, but this is more of me sharing my thoughts and opinions about things I find interesting, ironic, idiotic, humorous, titillating, sensual, sexual and even mundane in this world.
You’ll find that most of what I talk about are topics related to music and lyrical content of songs. Music inspires me. Music is the vessel I use to share what I feel about my own life experiences and encounters. For me, music helps me open up about topics I wouldn’t otherwise feel comfortable discussing so openly. Some of my readers do know me personally, but they’re the ones that truly understand my depth of love for music.
Occasionally, you’ll find that I even blog, not only about my Polynesian perspective on life, but also songs from my Polynesian roots. For those of you readers who are non-polynesians, I’ll do my best to remember to be considerate enough to translate those specific song lyrics and/or sayings from my childhood of which I share.
It’s been a couple years now since I’ve begun blogging online about how music affects me on a daily basis; how music TRULY moves me. It’s my oxygen. And although I sing, play instruments and dance, I do it because I love it. I don’t do it for money and most definitely not for fame. Being in the spotlight isn’t my cup of tea. Trust me, I’ve been there and done that. It’s not all that it’s cracked up to be. I enjoy randomly sharing my music related gifts just for a simple smile and/or laugh because sometimes that’s all a person needs to get through their day. My friends think I’m nuts for not capitalizing on my gifts, but I always tell them “I’m not a squirrel trying to get a nut in this world, I’m a nut squirreling around in this world.”
Listen along as you read along. I hope you enjoy my experiences as much as I enjoy writing about them.
