Music & Adventure

Tuesday, June 25, 2013

Have you ever had the feeling where you are supposed to be somewhere else? Like you were somewhere a past existence maybe? Yeah I know it is a little wild, the thought of a previous existence, but I feel that... often. Sometimes when I watch a movie or hear a song I get that feeling. The images or sounds make me feel a certain tugging at my heart. Like my soul is saying "c'mon girl, you gotta be HERE not there". Wherever "HERE" is. Some songs give me this deep yearning to be in another area of this country or in another season of my life. Sometimes it is sad, sometimes it is happy and exciting. My mind runs wild with the ideas of where I can be, and where I can go. This wanderlust is intense in my heart... every single day. I know I cannot be alone in this feeling. I suppose this yearning will continue until I can satisfy it just a little, however I'm sure that will spark an even greater desire for new places. I will travel soon, I just don't know here I will end up. For now, in California, where I was raised is where I will stay...however I don't feel that this is my home.

This song makes me feel like I belong in Arizona or Texas. Both of which I've been to briefly but I did not have the chance to explore them.

And this song, this one really really tugs at my soul. It makes me feel like I should be somewhere in the South or in Oklahoma again (I visited once and almost died, but that is another story ;] ) or in a forest or on a train. I do not know what it is about this song, but it makes me happy and sad all at the same time, also this is one of my favorite bands. "I've got my ticket and I'm going to go...home". I cannot wait to find my home.

Now, don't get me wrong. I love California. In fact, I have not explored enough of it. Maybe this wanderlust will never go away and I will never feel "home", but I sure do love the sweet thought of it.
