WORLD OFF DAILY

bus. subway. family roadtrip. a run. a walk; headphones on, the world off. just you and the beats. no thoughts, no speech. dull space-staring. music.

we have countless music-listening possibilities these days, we buy or download  it, put it in playlists, make a cover of it, and never run out of it because there's plenty of great artists and songs to listen to.

everyday i leave my house, i check if i have two things; my phone and my headphones (and a hand cream). i put them on and go straight to the place im going to with anybody interrupting me, i get what i need there and go back home exactly the same way. headphones are a great pretext for not having to speak to people you see and know (let's honestly admit that looking out the bus window is really worn-out and very obvious now. but back to the point.

i go running once in a while and when i go i put my 'WORK IT OUT GUUURL' playlist on and when im done i do this thing of running the last 30 meters as fast as i can and when i reach the finish line (it's an electricity box) i stop and gasp out. and as i stand there the music' is still playing and i keep it on until i reach the home door knob.

the thing, though is that once i went  running and after i finished i put the headphones off
and i breathed. and walked, and percieved the beauty of the world and was not interrupted by anything else, and as i was walking so uniterruptedly peacefully i got this idea: what if the music we play to not let anybody interrupt us interrupts us itself? i know, it's cool now to hate everybody and wear black, and be this kind of ''weird'' but come on. we're slipping the reality through our fingers! the world we get to have all around us is extraordinary and we volunterily choose to ignore it? music is a great thing, but when was the last time you talked to a stranger on a bus and made friends with them?

my message through this is not ''don't ever listen to music again and rather talk to people.'' no, im not doing that, im not gonna stop listening to music. my point is to stay as opened as possible to the beautiful diverse strange reality we choose to call life.

hope this doesn't look like a total crap to you and maybe even makes sense a little bit,
yours ressurected (so sorry for not posting!)
