There I was, alone but feeling so complete
, wandering through this dimly lit
music store in the city. It was mid-day but with the lighting
and music it felt more like the most peaceful evening
I've never experienced.
If I could have had the opportunity
, at that time, to be anywhere else in the world
.. I wouldn't have taken it because there, it was exactly where I wanted to be
. I think that's one of the very few times in my life
that I've thought that way, whole-heartedly loving my surround
ings and wishing to be absolutely no where else in the universe
I think probably the best part of the entire experience was that the music they were playing, which happened to be Chantal Kreviazuk
(thought I didn't know at the time), was so enrapturing it was so achingly beautiful
. I actually purchased Colour Moving and Still
, her newest album, after I listened to it in its entirety
while I wandered aimlessly.
She has a song titled "Blue
", "you've never seen the colour blue..." and when I heard that, I believed it, because it became more than a color
and I heard it in her voice, the way she sings. It's intoxicating
, so alluring and it draws you in until you never ever want to leave
again. One day I might twist my reality
so that I could have stayed there, for as long as I wanted... for days even. Incidentally, there's an extra
CD along with her album with some covers on it. I can listen to it now and feel almost what I felt that day
, but never quite the same, never so infinitely content
, at peace.
"It feels like home to me.
