A couple of weeks ago I posted about my personal peace plan. I listed five parts to this plan:
- Porch Time
Once I realized on a conscious level how important music is to my inner peace, I made a personal commitment to include more of it in my life. I’m by no means a pianist but I can play a little. I have a nice piano so I’m going to start playing again on a daily basis.
We will also continue to look for opportunities to enjoy live music as often as possible. I’m going to make a point of finding a good concert for us to attend this year but we’ll also take advantage of live music here in town and of course, New Orleans.
But since those aren’t daily occasions, I will continue to enjoy music in my daily life here at home. I’ll blast Nine Inch Nails while speed cleaning the house. I’ll mediate to soft, New Age-style music. I’ll listen to one of my Spotify playlists on the porch as the days get warmer. And when the weather doesn’t cooperate, I’ll curl up in my special corner of the library with a glass of wine and some jazz or blues.
