“Solitude”

 

By Indigo Sky 4/27/18

Growing up as the youngest of three girls I was always inside the house surrounded by my mothers inescapable influences.
One of the most beautiful memories I hold is that of the solitude that my mother seemed to relish in.
She was a dreamer and lived in a self sufficient world full of music, love, peace, and serenity.
Upon awakening I was immediately immersed in a mystical world full of incense and candles. I would often find her sipping on her favorite coffee or tea depending on her mood.
Every day was a new musical journey that I would unknowingly be a part of. I recall listening to everything
From the Gypsy King’s to Elton John, to Donna Summer and Diana Ross, even Latin artists like Ana Gabriel or Julio Iglesias.
Each song evoking a different
emotion inside of me.
Its amazing to think just how deep music can impact the soul. And even after many years have come and gone, it still remains in my memory and it has the power to ignite a wide range of feelings and emotions locked away deep inside of me.
Looking back nostalgia and tears consume me, yet in a strange way the solitude feels like nourishment to my soul. And it’s exactly what I need as it fills the void in my heart and allows me to connect with my true self.
It’s interesting how as the years go by and we get older, we tend to mirror our parents.
Today I find myself living life on
a spiritual path, and craving that same solitude that my mother would lose herself in.
A sacred place where the veil can be lifted and everything becomes transparent.
I’m not ashamed to say that I too relish in these moments of
solitude and bliss.
