Musical Healing

 

These beats make my heart soar, to high notes resonating within me like you.
Music is an escape, it’s your voice – it helps me sleep, smile, breathe again.

You are wrapped in the small folds of the crisp notes, and the hushed lulls.
You spill from within me, these sung words on moist lips.

I feel you breathe goosebumps along my neck, in the poignant silence.
Notes envelope me, your big arms, my protection…still.

Sharing: a concept that is so heavily reinforced during childhood, and practically forgotten during adulthood. We replace this compassionate mentality so quickly with ego based consumerism, but perhaps our parents were onto something…

Sharing platforms are a growing trend towards owning less yet having the ability to do more. This movement allows you to access the same services at a lower cost, with less environmental impact (material, transport etc) and encourages a much needed shift from disposable products back to high quality.

There are so many amazing sharing platforms available, such as:

New sharing platforms are emerging all the time, such as clothing sharing, construction tool sharing, etc. Some are local initiatives, others are digitally based. I love this concept, not only for the benefits mentioned above, but also for the connection it allows within a community – for the network it builds.

Why not give it a shot? Post your sharing experiences and/or other sharing platforms you enjoy below!
