bending sound

blue noteyou know the feeling when you are listening to a killer song, and you’re totally immersed in it, eyes closed, head tilted back, and the sound touches your being in such a pleasurable way it almost hurts, and you soar to the heights of euphoria, and your body opens up in millions of different places, and each of these openings turns inside out, and its smaller constituents start to break open and turn inside out as well, in an orgasmic fractal dismemberment… inside out, outside in, recursively, ad infinitum, and in the process, exhausted and exhilarated you become light and your breath paints the room and the colorful droplets come dancing down on your skin until they become sound again, teasing the mind’s eye, and you begin to perceive things with your cells, and every sense is infinitely magnified so that the music is now actually absorbed through your pores… yeah, that’s how it feels right now.

    You are a great writer. Come back and share your thoughts. “Orgasmic fractal dismemberment”, that is running literature!

    You brought me there! Thank you…I really needed that without knowing it!

    OK, I was reading that thinking, “I know EXACTLY how that is!! I’ve written about that! She sounds totally bipolar..” and then I saw the tag at the end and laughed out loud.

    I wrote about that very thing (my bipolar life, etc.) in a Nashville Scene cover story, 5/5/05. Should you care to read it, Google “Bernie, bipolar, Nashville Scene’ and there it is: “A Beautiful Mind’s Uncertain Future”. (Editor’s title.)

    GREAT description of musical euphoria! Girl, you can write! I’m with you–writing and running. Just can’t bring myself to blog quite yet. I will. Dig your blog, though.

    p.s. Run on, sister!

    Thanks, Bernie! I need more running in my life now, though. (And more blogging). I’m checking out your article right now!
