I’m not a “cryer”…..I rarely ever cry for any reason. I always say “I’m all cried out….I cried all my tears years ago and there’s none left”. But today, when I got up and remembered yesterday and all the devastation in our area from those monster tornadoes….I put on some Led Zeppelin music, and just sat here and sobbed. There is so much pain and sadness and heartbreak in this world. Sometimes it just gets to me. Life on planet earth can be so hard.
This song really hits me deep in my soul, not the lyrics necessarily, but the incredible heart wrenching emotion…for some reason this song brings tears to my eyes….I listen to it when I feel like I need to cry, and it usually does the job. Just the heart wrenching soul of this song always moves me. I don’t know if it does this for anyone else, but it certainly does for me.
Music is one thing that can cut through all the walls I’ve built up around myself…..and when it does, a flood of pent up emotion comes rushing out.
Maybe this particular kind of music isn’t your cup of tea, but whatever kind of music you like…..let it be a way to bring that buried emotion to the surface, so you can heal. It’s a wonderful way to find your center, and let the emotion flow out so you can find peace. ♥
The tears I cry today are for Washington and Pekin Illinois. Two towns that will always be a part of me. To those who have suffered because of this storm, I cry with you.
