” After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music.” Aldous Huxley

Music keeps me grounded.

More and more, I’m coming to understand this and to implement it in my day to day life. The past few days I haven’t really had the time to listen to music. I’ve found myself humming and whistling, a LOT. I really enjoy humming. I feel like you have to have some inner peace to be able to hum. You have to feel a sense of calm and serenity in your life. At least, that’s the way I see it. And I most enjoy the fact that I have that in my life.

I often find myself humming songs I adore. Sometimes, songs I’ve heard recently. And even still, songs pop out of nowhere. Of course, I hum a little of my own creation…have to have some fun, right?

Today alone, I’ve stumbled across Broken Ones by Dia Frampton as well as Just One of Those Things by Meg & Dia. Furthermore, the Elmo’s World theme song. A few Veggie Tales tunes. And some others I cannot remember currently. I know, I know…a wide array of humming selection. But hey, whatever keeps the smile on my face.

Do you ever hum? What songs?

Well, I’ll leave you with this one–I’m really feeling it tonight.

I know they’ve hurt you bad
Why hide the scars you have
Baby let me straighten out your broken bones
All your faults to me make you more beautiful
I can’t help it I love the broken ones
the ones who need the most patching up
the ones who never been loved
never been loved
never been loved enough
Maybe I see a part of me in them
The missing piece always trying to fit in
the shattered heart hungry for a home
no you’re not alone
I love the broken ones
You don’t have to drive with your headlights off
It’s a pocket knife, not a gift from God
Don’t you learn of love from the love they kept
I will be your anchor, slowly, step by step
Maybe we can rip off the bandage
Maybe you will see it for what it is
Maybe we can burn this building holding you in
From Dia Frampton’s blog.
