"When the songs of your heart start ringing, you should gratefully listen...for the harmony is that which will bring you happiness and the melody is the voice of your true spirit." ~Author Unknown
It has been such a long time since my heart sang a tune that I can't remember the year, the season or even where I was living. I do however remember what it felt like when my heart would sing. I remember the bolt of electricity that would just send my body dancing to it's beat.
I remember that when I loved I sang songs of old. When I was happy I sang tunes of the 60s. When I was relaxed my heart whistled melody's without words. I remember my head held high and always seeing the sky.
I always gratefully listened to my heart sing. My spirit then was loud and full of energy.....
Now when I love I hear only the sirens of warning. When I want to dance I haven't a tune to follow. Numbness leaves no current to electrify me.

I have as of late seen a fierce courage within me that I long lost. I have taken stands, opened doors, closed others. I have remembered my mantras; point of no return, faith in heart - faith in life, goodness shall come.
It is not a song I hear, rather a distant drum. But I hear it none the less. My heart....it longs to dance.
I love October, not just because it is my birthday month but because the air changes, the season changes, the time changes.
It is when we must embrace the fact that the time change will have us seeing the dark sooner. A time when the trees begin to let loose the leaves, orange, brown and yellow leaves flying about.
It is the time when the ghouls and horrors are seen in decorations, shows, movies and parties.
It is the time when we say farewell to the summer heat, smile toward the cooler weather and wonder of the winter to come.
Happy October! May there be light within you to shine upon the earlier darker hours. May the ghouls and gremlins that ring the door bell make you smile and partake in trick or treat.
May you embrace the change in season knowing... it will bring us back to Spring soon enough.
