Melody's Musings

Stuff that catches my fancy and random, sorted thoughts from the inner scrambles of my mind.

What you may expect to find here are what I consider good taste and some of the best in photography, philosophy, humor, art, architecture, food, music, poetry, literature and dance. I hope you like some of the things I enjoy.

I like anything to do with good design such as interior design, architecture, photography, and art. I enjoy philosophy and psychology. I love to figure out what makes individuals tick. Music of most all types but particularly classical, world, pop, acoustic guitar is a big part of my life and add some dance to the music and my day is great! I like to write and occasionally I will write poetry and I really love to read it out loud and I even record it sometimes.

I'm a Myers-Briggs type ENFJ which means I love people and have a great interest in them.

I guess you could say I'm a humanities kind of person. :)

Vulnerability is the Key to Unlock Your Potential
by Melody

Don’t be
Sad as the man in the moon who’s face never becomes full
To greet the lovers who come to bathe in his light
Don’t be
The rosebud that is afraid to open and never gives of its full beauty
Remember a guitar with a broken string can never make perfect music
Don’t be
Sad as the bird in an iron cage that can sing 
but not with the excitement of freedom
or a stopped clock with one hand that can’t even be right twice a day
Don’t be
Like a candle with no match which can never light up the darkness
or a balloon with no air that never leaves the boundaries of the earth
Don’t be
As a wagon with only three wheels which cannot reach its destination
Keep in mind a poet without a poem will never give forth of his wisdom
So step outside the door of your fear
and have faith in your possibilities
Love the person you are and shall become
Don’t be like the selfish rosebud
Open up wide and expose yourself
Close that door of fear behind you
And unlock the potential you possess inside
You’re only that first one step away
