The Book Of My Heart
The Book Of My Heart Series
My first thought of this project is definitely not where it finalized. I needed time to wrap my head around the original idea. Most songs takes me a few hours to get in the minset and place where I am "in the moment". This project proved me wrong. It was difficult and I found myself spending 7 to 15 days per song remembering and emotionally experiencing what I felt withing each song, in some cases it was 30 years ago.
At first, I thought that all of the memories were happy. Feels of butterflies skipping around my stomach. Once I got involved in rearranging the music, I found that my memories held a lot of sadness and regret. I had to slow down and reflect on why I felt the way that I did. I took the time to understand what perspective I was then verses where I am now. My first thought was love. I understand, like most people, love takes on many different forms and/or ideas.
There were times in which I would lay on my couch listening to various artists searching for my answers within their music. I discovered the majority of the music I was listening to was gender oriented. They were songs of love about him loving her or her loving him. This idea was so unrealistic that I turned everything off. Love is for everyone and it has no gender. It is not about him/her loving her/him it is about LOVE!!!!
Music Is a personal experience. It is not gener oriented. I reflected upong this and believing the face that all I need to express is my personal experiences within my life enhanced and encompasses the love for ALL within this album. I give these 10 songs, The Book Of My Heart circa 1988-2015, hoping that anyone who loves and has loved can find something relevant. Love is for everyone! GIVE LOVE...IT IS FREE!
