Christ is risen!
I fasted not only from certain foods and passions, I fasted from music. Music is a major soul uplifter for me, but during Great Lent I practiced going to and relying on God as the source to uplift my soul. I made little progress, if any, but its probably better something and late than none at all. As I am typing and writing, I am playing a range of Byzantine music (like Kabarnos) to sea shanties from “Fisherman’s Friends” to Nat King Cole’s “LOVE”. My mom will be visiting England very soon and I am slightly gently pushing her to see them at Port Isaac on Friday nights when she can with her beau. It is very uplifting for the soul, such as “Keep Hauling” or “No Hopers, Jokers, or Rogues”. If you need a pick me up, those are my go to that I suggest to start with and explore further what you like! I dream of myself being in a garden or forest foraging food kissing goodbye the city life when I hear these songs but thank God I am here at the same time. (Though I really would like to be away in a forest, cook with what I found, stare at birds singing or hear the waves of the river as I pray, and probably paint… just saying.)
