Melody Noir

I woke early this am! To a frigid temperature! -30 outside

Now what?

Music..and coffee..that’s what!

My house is warm and….very…quiet..

The smell of coffee is warming up my senses…slowly…as well as all my sleepy cells and muscles…

What music do I fill this house with?

“Melody Noir”! Patrick Watson. One of my favourites..All the illusiveness it brings to mind…And that amazing ethereal voice!!!

‘Too mellow for an early morning song” a voice said in my head!

Then I heard the voice say “oh and it’s completely moody!”

I still wanted no other to listen to.. Am I feeling romantic early this am? Not particularly! Romance is a frivolous and fleeting journey…Although, I can’t help but wonder this: To entitle someone ‘you’re the sweetest melody I ever sung’!!! What’s that feel like?! I don’t know! But it’s wonderful to listen to…That I know. And that’s all that matters lately!

I have decided: I will live day by day. No overthinking what’s to come! I honestly don’t care! I am lucky, incredibly lucky, I have lived this far! I know this may make me sound like a pessimist! But the truth, couldn’t be farther!

I love life! I laugh constantly! But I love logic too! So, one day at a time, sounds.. perfect! What would it bring? What joy can ‘I’ bring to this world? Whose life am I going to touch? Who is going to enter mine and make it richer and more…fun?!

Yes yes..I know..that contradicts my loner life pledge! But I am learning, to give others a chance to get to know me, and I, them.

Burying myself in just work, isn’t healthy.

Every year prior to Christmas, and when I am asked what do I want for Christmas, my response had been ‘new headphones’! I hate gifts.

This has been going on for years.

I basically, spend more time with my earphones than I do with anyone or..anything! So, I either wear them out, or new ones (promising the delivery of the richest audio) catch my eyes..or is it my ears?! 😉

This year? I am in love with my wireless Apple EarPods! Life has…an entirely new..sweet melody it

Melody Noir…and the warmest voice…on a -30 January morning in Permafrost

I used to work as a graphic designer, until one day I was tragically and blissfully hit by two colliding meteors! One caused my falling in love with the world of coffee! And the other resulted in me falling out of love with the not so wonderful and nearly suffocating office culture! I left the glamour of the design world, and opened up my little café! Those were the best years of my life! I say ‘were’, because (wait! May be another time! But please do ask me if you ‘must’ know and can’t sleep tonight unless I tell you!) For the past three years, I have been living in a pyramid shape house in a middle of a green forest in the summer; a green forest buried underneath lots - I mean LOTS - of snow in the winter. I used to ‘think I still do ;)’ love the city! With its buzzing energy! I love to travel and seeing different food and coffee scenes...preferably alone! visiting ‘quirky and unusual’ places! I do not love visiting museums, hugely commercialized areas, malls and landmarks! I love old and full of heritage ‘anything’! I also love, to sit in a busy coffeeshop ‘reading quietly’ and not talking! Talking exhausts me most of the time! Watching the world unfold.. and thinking ...never does!
