Colours of My Soul

If you do not understand my silence, you'll never understand my words...

The journey begins...

Beethoven once said "What i have in my heart and soul must find a way out, THAT is the reason for MUSIC". Music is just one form of expression. People express themselves in various ways. Some like to talk, some just cry, some like to write and some prefer to dwell on their concerns in silence ... Ultimately, it doesn't matter, as long as we find a way to deal with our inner thoughts and emotions.
Personally, I have always found solace through MUSIC. But I am also one who enjoys keeping a personal diary( in which the entries are not consistent, may not always be on a daily basis). I write only when someone or something triggers my emotions or impinge on my principles. I am more of a silent observer and am rather private with my views on whats happening in the world. I have always wondered though, why people enjoyed putting their most private thoughts out there in the open, (e.g. in the name of blogging), for everyone to scrutinize. Perhaps there is some sense of satisfaction and relieve that comes from allowing yourself to "think out loud". Hmmm, hopefully, in time, I will discover the pleasures of sharing my observations more "openly"....
