Listen to

“Listen to the rhythm of the falling rain
Telling me just what a fool I’ve been
I wish that it would go and let me cry in vain
And let me be alone again
The only girl I care about has gone away
Looking for a brand new start
But little does she know” -the Cascades

It is A beautiful song that tells about a sad man who lost his love. What I like most about the song is really that first line “listen to the rhythm of the falling rain.”

When I was younger I watched a wonderful movie starring Bruce Willis. Bruce played the Hero, for which the movie was named. “Hudson Hawk, was a smooth art and jewel thief. If you haven’t seen the movie and have some spare time this weekend do yourself a favor and watch it. The movie is not on Netflix but I do think it is on Hulu +. in the movie We join Hudson right after he is paroled from prison his partner and him are working on a new caper and there is some wonderful dialogue between the two in which, they discuss the length of some songs.
See as a thief Hudson must have impeccable timing. He uses music to develop his timing.
I love music and feel like life is all about music. If you are still, vigilant, grateful and restful of life you can hear the music. A harmony and melody. Sometimes it is a sweet falling rain and at other times it can be the cacophony of a tsunami. No matter the tempo it is always there.
The happy man or woman is the one who is most “in tune” with the music of life. Let’s all do ourselves a favor today and “listen to the rhythm”
Peace
