Dog years – Falling water

I came across this song from an artist I never heard before. When music enters my life like this, there is always a meaning. I look for the signs and the message that comes along with as to why I discovered this particular song. Sometimes it is the melody, the voice or the lyrics that grab me or sweep me away. Sometimes it becomes a theme song to a battle I’m fighting, as if to help me through the night. Sometimes the carefree nature of the song or video reminds my to be unique and authentic. To not see things so seriously, to have mysterious moves and dance like no one is watching. To let my body express the emotions in its own beautiful weird way, and to always keep music within my heart. Perhaps it is all of the above with this artist and the lyrics and the song speaks to me as well as the voice and the moves as if harvesting and shadow dancing with the unseen. The last time this happened was with an artist named Mogli and my post called Road Holes. ❤️

Who am I, and why I write. I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. I am the one, holding on to the silver lining when the skies are gray. I’m a believer that nothing is coincidence, but that everything has purpose. I’ve made my mistakes, don’t we all, but I see them as growing pains and they are a part of who I am today. I have lost myself in order to find myself, and I still do from time to time, but in a good way. I’m a big child who laughs until my belly hurts when life wants to be serious. Career wise: I’ve been there, done that, and I took “The jump” off the hamster wheel in an effort to change my future. I didn’t land all that soft, but I can say that I’m still proud to have found the courage to do it. Coming full circle, I had it all, and yet I was lonely and had nothing. Today I choose to be a collector of moments and I chase memories, instead of the material stuff. Less is more, and the motto is quality over quantity. You’d be amazed at how freeing it can be. I see myself as a free spirit that believes in an unconventional lifestyle. Somehow I go against the grain most of the times, not to rebel, but because it feels right to stay true to my unique and authentic self. It takes courage, and you often stand alone, but if you dare, you soon realize that it is the only way if you don’t want to lose who you are. Just like most, my past wasn’t easy and I come from a life that didn’t always give me the opportunity to be heard. Few related and even fewer cared to take the time. But that’s the past and it’s history, the future hasn’t happened and the “NOW” is truly all we ever have. In the end we all have a story to tell, and we all seek to be understood. We all yearn to be heard and accepted and still life is hard and our path is full of stumbling blocks. If we can see the lessons in adversity we may realize that the toughest moments are often our greatest teachers. There is a reason for the saying that the stars can’t shine without darkness, and it might be darkness that will show you the light.
It took a series of (un)fortunate events, to learn to glow through the pain, to learn how to dance in the rain. I believe in Magic and wonder, and the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. As an empath this old soul often feels a little too much, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Today, I am here to tell my story because I believe that it can help others. It is my hope to bring inspiration and strengths to you, while showing you that it can be done. I know you are out there, and I know you are suffering in silence. I am here to tell you that you are not alone, and your voice is being heard loud and clear. Hang on and be strong, transformation is yours. 
In light and love....Rhapsody Bohème 💙🦋

  1. I read your words first, so beautifully expressed, and was struck by your phrase “and the moves as if harvesting and shadow dancing with the unseen.” Then I watched the two videos and when I got to ‘Falling water’, I understood the phrase. Actually, watching it brought tears to my eyes, it’s quite sad and deep, especially watching the passionate strength with which she expresses herself with her body movements, it looks like angst. I could imagine you dancing and singing to it like that, Rhapsody. As much as I can see why you love and identify with this music, by all means, throw yourself into it, but be careful, if you stay with this track too long, my love, its energy will impact you deeply, as all music does, and you need to keep a sense of balance, just be aware, precious one, I know you are sensitive to emotions, so I trust you will feel it and understand what I mean, and you may experience it differently than I do, anyway.
    Yes, she has a beautiful voice, thank you for bringing her to me too.

    1. I know what you mean here and what you are saying. Music for me is powerful, a means to express when words fail or end. Music for me is versatile and I like many different styles and genres. Each song has its timing and I never stay long in just one place. It serves a purpose for a mood, a part of the journey. I can see it at angst too but I think I see it more as letting go of all control. It’s so unpredictable when it comes to the moves, so imaginary, uncontrolled to me. So much how things are like now with Mom. Today was awful and I had to write about it and move my tarot post for one more day to keep things relevant. 😔

      1. Yes, I quickly guessed that was what had happened with the posts. I think you were wise to write about it, it helped you to get it out in words, I imagine, and enabled others to offer support, which will help you feel strengthened, I hope. I am glad you understand what I mean about the music, I was pretty sure you would. In the meantime, enjoy the music and remember your swords. I am sending you my love and support and thinking of you. xx

    1. Oh wow what a great honor, I am speechless. Besides having no clue how to do that. 😔 im such a rookie with those things. Do I just write a post and link to your blog by mentioning it? Dog related topics? You see I’m a rookie and you’d probably wonder what you got yourself into it. I’d be delighted to, honestly. Thank you for your consideration, too kind. Hugs

      1. Ha! You, rookie?! I’m the one honored. If you wanted to write something dog – themed, or incident that reminded you of dogs, wolves, or such nonsense. I’d post it in my WordPress.
