I have a lot swimming through my mind everyday.
All at once.
But when I'm at a concert, a live performance, whether that be a symphony or a rock concert, I am free. It's when I'm full emersed in music, that when I don't feel like I'm drowning in anxiety. Standing up and dancing and head-banging to my favorite songs, or sitting and watching colors and designs sprout in front of my eyes as bows vibrate strings.
The only thing on my mind in those moments, is the music. Singing and dancing along, not a care in the world about what I look like or sound like. Who thinks I'm going overboard. Because the thing is, when I see other people dancing their hearts out and screaming the lyrics, it fills my own heart with such joy and love for them. They're having the time of their lives,
and I can too.
My first day off in three weeks was yesterday, and I got to spend the night listening to some of my favorite bands Panic! At The Disco, Andrew McMahon, and Weezer. It was the first night is so long I felt freed from everything going on in my life and in the world.
