It’s time for a music fast. I know that sounds absurd and scary. It’s a drastic measure that must be taken. I can’t properly go through a mental detox with songs stuck in my head. Music isn’t the escape it use to be for me, like in my teenage years. If anything, it keeps me connected with the characters in my story. It doesn’t surprise me how it has become more of a chain to my realities, versus transportation to my daydreams.
I need things to get clear, and fast. There are to many ideas and stories that are counting on my brain to work in a more productive cycle. The endless adrenaline is draining me past the exhaustion point.
I figured I would start with a single day. I’m hoping I can go three total, so that the silence can take full effect. But it all starts with a tranquil moment. A day without music isn’t something I am dreading, but welcoming. The sound of silence can finally be acknowledged and less distracting. It’ll be weird, but I’m not scared.
Music is a beautiful creation that man has harnessed. It’s time to remember that we were made to enjoy the silence just as well.
