I’ve been feeling pretty damn depressed lately. Today, I would like to share some things that utterly fascinate me and make me in the best moods ever. I hope they make you happy too. Best wishes.
Butterflies are amazing creatures. So serene and calming. I have had the pleasure of having my favorite kind, the spicebush swallowtail, land on me and just chill with me once. I even raised a painted lady from the larva stage until it became a butterfly and was ready to be on its own. Lovely things.
There are a number of songs that make me feel positively wonderful. They just turn my mood into the best it can be. For your sake, I will not list them all, but I will tell you a bit about the never-fail song for me. Daylight by Matt and Kim has to be the peppiest song I love. It just screams “I’m fucking peppy!”Not that it’s like a cheer or anything. It just has SO MUCH ENERGY and is like “YES!” “WOO HOO!” “FUCK YEAH!” It actually took me a while to even like this song. I was not feeling it at all when I first heard it. Now, I listen to it all the time for about a year or two? Don’t really remember how long it’s been. Nevertheless, I hope you listen and enjoy this wonderful song at some point in your life. Here’s a helping hand to get that going.
Orchids are my absolute favorite flower. If I could fuck a flower, it would be an orchid. They are the sexiest damn things a plant could make. That’s really all I can say on the matter.
I have recently been very interested in the symphonic rock genre. I cannot express how much I truly love listening to it. Obviously some is better than others. But when they choose the right song to translate into their gorgeous orchestral styles, it is golden. I have been a long time fan of orchestra instruments. I used to play the piano and violin in elementary school. I quit both f them for foolish reasons. I sincerely regret not continuing to play them. Everything has to happen for a reason though, pity as some may be. Here is the Vitamin String Quartet’s cover of System of a Down’s song Lonely Day.
And Last, but never least, creating. The act of creating art is just so enveloping and just makes me feel so charged. Electric. Like the room is one big lightening storm. I just fucking adore the shit out of it. Week after week I tell you all about it and, sorry to be repetitive, but it will continue to be said. I love the vibe I get from really good works of art. It’s like the medium is pulling me into its world and drowning me in the milk and honey of it. I hope I never lose my passion for art.
