Sometimes when I’m sitting here staring at a blank page feeling completely uninspired, I ask myself: what do I most need to hear right now?
And then I write those words to myself, and share them with you, in case you need to hear them too.
What do I most need to hear right now?
I most need a lullaby. I want you to sing to me – gentle, whimsical songs that settle my restlessness and sink me into soothing.
Sing me a lullaby about a woman on a road, she’s walking barefoot, her feet talk to the warm rocks and she hears the song of the earth through her soles. She takes steps, one after the other, when there are steps to take. And when there aren’t, she stands in stillness and feels things. The stories on the breeze. The smiles of the stars. The curiosity of a woman who never learned to look away.
I most need a lullaby. I want you to sing to me – songs from your heart telling my heart that everything’s okay.
A lullaby that says: you can rest a while; and while you rest I will be the watcher. This evening is a friendly darkness.
I most need a lullaby. I want you to sing to me – a song that feels like water, the rocking of gentle little waves on an empty moonlit shore that is alive with beauty.
A song that speaks of stillness. A lullaby that gathers in scattered thoughts, gathers in tired limbs, gathers in restless energy that spins without finding any place to come to ground. A lullaby that wraps all of me in melodies and harmonies and invites in the quiet night.
Sing me a lullaby <3
