A reminder

I spend a reasonable amount of time on the internet and what I do on it seems to go through cycles, whilst it was almost exclusively used to play games for a period of time I haven’t really gamed for awhile now and these days it is mostly to research new things / read and keep in contact with friends overseas. I do a lot of random Googling, usually something will take my interest so I will Google terms associated with that but sometimes I wish to be surprised or learn and in these instances I tend to just quieten my mind and Google the terms that pop into my head.

Usually they aren’t all together surprising as they are based on something that has been in the back of my head simply coming up to the surface but other times they come out of nowhere which was the case for this evening. The random terms ended up leading me to a song by Enya, and the lyrics to which serve as a reminder.

May it be an evening star
Shines down upon you
May it be when darkness falls
Your heart will be true
You walk a lonely road
Oh! How far you are from home

Mornie utulie (Darkness has come)
Believe and you will find your way
Mornie alantie (Darkness has fallen)
A promise lives within you now

May it be the shadow’s call
Will fly away
May it be you journey on
To light the day
When the night is overcome
You may rise to find the sun

Mornie utulie (Darkness has come)
Believe and you will find your way
Mornie alantie (Darkness has fallen)
A promise lives within you now

A promise lives within you now.

Music has been a; well I wouldn’t say passion but a love of mine for quite some time. I have rather diverse tastes and don’t really subscribe to any particular genre but I have a great deal of respect for the written word as well as people who are able to play instruments they are both tools that when wielded by an artist are able to evoke thoughts and feelings in their target audience. Overall there are not many pieces that can bring me to wet eyes typically it is the realm of classical with a particular weakness to the violin and string based instruments. I have listened to it a lot over the years so I don’t usually break out the waterworks; Ocassionally though there is something new that can draw the emotion out from the depths of my soul.

Whilst modern music may tend to be soulless and regurgitation of senseless themes which sell there are still pieces out there which have the power to speak to us through the artists creations. This one for me serves as a reminder but also a message.
