4:38 am I Have No Words, So I’ll Use None

4:38 am I Have No Words, So I’ll Use None

It’s too much for me. What is coming up and out of me this mid-early morning is too much for me to process, too much for me to swallow; and so I won’t. I’ll cry, I’ll let it out, I’ll try to do something with the energy so that it won’t choke my soul anymore. Don’t worry. It’s all good growing pains sort of stuff. This time a bit too private to share, but I would like to share (cuz it helps me to do so) what is soothing me as I sit on the concrete floor in my hostel in Lima,Peru. My dearest Regina Spektor [the artist] is here with me.

I have no words, so I’ll use none (of mine) . They are in the order that I’m watching them (and they are doing such a great job ).  The last one is the best.

I hear in my mind all of these voices
I hear in my mind all of these words
I hear in my mind all of this music
And it breaks my heart
It started out as a feeling
Which then grew into a hope
Which then turned into a quiet thought
Which then turned into a quiet word
And then that word grew louder and louder
‘Til it was a battle cry
I’ll come back when you call me
No need to say goodbye
This is how it works
You’re young until you’re not
You love until you don’t
You try until you can’t
You laugh until you cry
You cry until you laugh
And everyone must breathe
Until their dying breath

No, this is how it works
You peer inside yourself
You take the things you like
And try to love the things you took

If I kiss you where it’s sore
If I kiss you where it’s sore
Will you feel better, better, better
Will you feel anything at all


(The pictures of her in this clip are adorable and she is. The font here is hard to read. But the original video is a dose of pure happiness to me. It’s so worth a watch. Sit back and smile!

And finally, I bow down to this one…
Oh Great Spirit, whose voice I hear in the winds
And whose breath gives life to everyone,
Hear me.
I come to you as one of your many children;
I am weak… I am small…I need your wisdom
and your strength.
Let me walk in beauty.
Make my hands respect the things you have made,
and make my ears sharp so I may hear your voice.
Make me wise, so that I may understand what you
have taught my people and
The lessons you have hidden in each leaf and each rock.
I ask for wisdom and strength,
Not to be superior to my brothers, but to be able
to fight my greatest enemy, myself.
Make me ever ready to come before you with
clean hands and a straight eye,
So as life fades away as a fading sunset,
My spirit may come to you without shame.

Allow your heart to open like a flower

And give the many blessings to everyone around you.

Allow your soul to fly free, again, as it once did.

May you be ever blessed with the abundance

of infinite love, and light.

The pictures, music and inspirational words together are just divine.
The light outs are getting slowly brighter, more cars driving around… I need to get some sleep Tomorrow we’re going the market.
And still, I remain without words. Tell me, which songs, which videos hug your soul? I’d love to hear, and add them to mine. And thanks for letting me share. It helps…
