What a night ;-) I live my life sometimes making myself small for other people; often unconsciously, as its a trait from childhood that has carried over. I know how I look and I over compensate a lot because I feel what other's judgements are. That doesn't mean that I am ruled by those judgements, but it does mean that I am aware of the underestimation of who I am. It has allowed me to forge through and persevere. More often then not, most write me off and never see me coming; but I don't gloat, instead I am humbled by it, and hopefully let my work speak for me.
But still; I am often as almost a reflex aware of my overcompensation of self, as well as making my self small so that others can feel that their assessment is right.
Music is the core of me. Many of you know that I am allergic to most opiates and cannot tolerate it. so often I'd focus on every dissonance and reverberation of the sound. In operating rooms; I was able to have them play my mix CD as I entered to prepare me, and was allowed to have music play as I awoke because of the massive amount of pain I would be in. So music is literally my medicine. it allows for muscle and emotional memory much like smell does.
A handful (ha!!!) of artist can reach me to the bone, and Emily Haines / METRIC/ Soft Skeleton has always been able to get me there. Tonight was no different.
Their show was like watching a once act play; it was truly and experience to be in the music with them, she took us on a sonic journey and flash backs of old song of who she was and who she is now. You have to let go of time and all the things, all the wants... It was truly Beautiful
All I feel is gratitude to be able to be a voyeur on the journey with them. I look forward to many many more.
