Music. The blessing I have to hear it as I do. [English]
Music. The blessing I have to hear it as I do.
I got home early. I couldn’t find parking outside my own home and I was tired. A recipe for a very upset Tony indeed. I also had to carry the laptop and other goodies up the stairs, including dog food, cat food, etc, and if that wasn’t enough, no ice cream which was the only thing I went shopping for.
I sat downstairs before I went up, knowing that I honestly didn’t want to go upstairs in the mood I was.
I ended up going sooner than I wanted, due to the cats of the neighborhood wanting more attention than I could give, so I gave way to it all and went up.
A night alone. What better than to have had a good day and have parked in front of my own home. After all, I have a parking spot, why would anyone take it. I’m so &$(&%.
I turned on the lights and let everything drop to the ground, including most of my clothes, showered and went directly to bed.
Of course, who goes to bed at 7 p.m.? Not me. I did try though, but the thought that I could sit and listen to something I would not have listened to otherwise got me up immediately.
I didn’t know what that meant at the time, but I think it meant that I was not pushed to listen to music that is very hard to play so that I could tell an amplifier or a cable or a DAC apart.
I didn’t have to test anything.
I could play anything on my MusichiPlay, pick my favourite guitarist, Paco del Lucia and listen to him play in different things that I have him recorded in. After all, if you have a choice of who to listen to, (with one band or another guitarist let’s say), and his different signatures as the artist grows, you get a sense of his or her life and travels (metaphorical and not).
I turned on the already mentioned, Audio Hungry, sorry, Audio Hungary integrated amplifier, pressed the button of the server with the music on, the DAC and grabbed the mini keyboard. I sat in my lazy boy leather chair, and felt great. I then realised I needed that tub of ice cream after all to make this moment perfect, otherwise I was set for an evening of wonders.
To be honest, I was already into the first 2 titles of Friday Night in San Francisco, with Paco, John McLaughlin and Al Di Meola, when I realised that whatever I was thinking of previously, was already forgotten, and that this performance, which is highly recommended, (by me) to be listened to at least once, had already made my horrid day, turn into a bearable one.
I looked at my artwork, and smiled. I was finally relaxing a bit and then it dawned on me.
How lucky I am to have the luxury to sit back and have a way out of my horrid day, (no parking and let us not forget the ice cream).
I feel so blessed to be able to sit back and have a great PC, a wonderful album collection, an astonishing pair of Audio Solution speakers in the system this month and smile at my Tellurium Q Silver Diamond speaker cables, the new interconnects I just got, and in total, everything that I have, even if it’s not mine.
It’s a wonder that we have the luxury to sit back and be so lucky as to have the ability to work, be healthy (or at least be healthy enough to live it up a bit), and have a home over our heads.
Does that make sense?
God bless work and education and the ability to progress and give to society. Thank you Lord for being there for my friends and readers who enjoy what our ancestors gave to us and we have taken it to another level as we have. Thank you all of the above high end companies, who have given their hearts to make my soul (you may think its all about money, but its not) feel so elevated after days or negative experiences in life.
Music is not my passion. It’s not my drug, its naturally embedded in our DNA as the most healing of all the elements given to us. Let’s learn how to use it for what it is and reap the benefits all way round.
