Heart Strings

Isn’t it wonderful to hear a song that uplifts you?
Music can move us in so many ways and in so many directions of emotions.

I recently listened to a song that was posted on a blog written by Olive Tree, and it immediately brought tears to my eyes. It had so much deep feeling in it, and I felt a rush of my emotions as I listened to what the singer was trying to express.

I can’t help but listen to “Be Patient (Still)” by Smidi, without feeling emotions of happiness and sentimentality, and it’s completely instrumental.

I have many times cried while singing a hymn in church, because it brought out the pain I was feeling at the time.

Sometimes it is the words that bring great feelings, and sometimes it is the instruments, or it can be both, in how they are put together.

I’m sure you can think of songs that brings great emotion to you and stirs your soul, to either help with the pain you are feeling, or promote the energy in you, to do something great!

Listen to a song today that meets a need in you, and strums your heart strings.

“After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music.”
Aldous Huxley

  1. I agree; love the music.

    Dr. Tom Bibey, “The Mandolin Case”

  2. IS THERE A DOCTOR IN THE BUILDING—? (‘-‘)

    YES, MUSIC —CAN STIR THE EMOTIONS—IT DEPENDS ON WHAT YOU LISTEN TO AND THE MEANING BEHIND IT—-
    TOTALLY AGREE—
    I EVEN LOVE TO LISTEN TO YOU PLAY YOUR GUITAR AND SING—-!!!!!

  3. And you know what else is powerful about music? It can connect two or more people together. That’s powerful. I haven’t been able to stop myself from listening to that song Hate Me every day since I posted that poem. One of these days I’d like to write another poem about another song. Something that’s a little bit more uppey. I’m always happy to touch other people’s heart through my writing. I think that’s the ultimate goal in writing. Next piece, please! 😉 Have a great week to you, Catlas.

  4. music, the bridge that unites heaven and earth, connects the heart with the soul and that which fills the mind with joy and sorrow.

    I have always liked, “Can’t you see” by The Marshal Tucker Band, for several reasons but mostly now because of the melody and lead guitar rifts.

  5. catlas, I could not stop thinking of my days as a “child of the 60s”, listening to the Mamas and the Papas strumming and playing, “The Answer is Blowing in the Wind”. Showing my age, but I feel passionately that this is very applicable today. Music pulls our heartstrings. I am like Olive Tree in my aspirations to touch other’s hearts with my writing. You have touched mine today. Thank you.
