A universal language that transcends all walks of life in the world, it speaks to more than your ears, tiptoes into a person’s heart, creeps into the soul and does a spiritual dance. Music is what feelings sound like. It finds ways to rebirth memories, aids with putting the present to rest and has the strength to make the sternest face smile. Heroic harmonies no emperor on this planet has come close to touching, and they’ll be foolish to try. The saying goes; music can calm a beast, which has been proven certain. It calms the largest beast in the world, one of the largest populated cities, New York City! A huge metropolis that is home to millions of people and a getaway for millions more. Where strangers meet daily, with awkward yet friendly smiles, and never meet again. Disconnect is common. This beast of a city filled often with disengaged people is all connected by the underground arteries and overhead railway capillaries that is the MTA NYC subway system. It’s the roaring belly of the beast that all people of the city use for travel, but many times while racing to your next destination you get blessed with music from a subway musician, and it makes you smile, makes you think of a happy place, and sometimes the disconnected, impatient subway rider slows their stride, to take in the rhythm of a drum.
"I’m very happy if my words can ever inspire or empower someone who considers themselves an oppressed minority… We are all the same and we all want the same things: the right to be happy, to be just who we want to be and to love who we want to love.” - Beyoncé for OUT Magazine
…..and could you you do that magic trick again, popping up from no where. Though my planets full of warfare, you make it feel like a dream, man I hope they never find you, I think you are a lost Queen
Get into a drunken fight with your boyfriend, and then die…..SAD
