Music of the Night

Music of the Night

Taking a break in my landscaping/decorating to just relax and take it all in. Sitting here in my rocking chair (I love rocking chairs), the sound of crickets, dragonflies, fireflies, birds chirping and the water lightly lapping  softly against the dock…  It was such a Kodak moment I had to capture it and share. Isn’t that what we shutterbugs do?

I am excited for the way things are coming together on Lost Horizon.  Most days are productive but other days it feels as though the wind has been taken out of my sails and I have been put in dry dock.  I don’t know if I will ever get my full sail again. but I am going to give it my best shot, even if I have to jump ship and tow the darn boat meself.  For now I am doing good just to tread water.

Soon I will open Lost Horizon to the public.  In the meantime I am sitting here listening to the Music of the Night.  TWMA 🙂

Music of the Night ~ Phantom of the Opera

Nighttime sharpens, heightens each sensation
Darkness stirs and wakes imagination
Silently the senses abandon the defenses

Slowly, gently, night unfurls its splendor
Grasp it, sense it – tremulous and tender
Turn your face away from the garish light of day
Turn your thoughts away from cold unfeeling light
And listen to the music of the night

Close your eyes and surrender to your darkest dreams
Purge all thoughts of the life you knew before
Close your eyes let your spirit start to soar
And you’ll live as you’ve never lived before

Softly, deftly music shall caress you
Hear it, feel it secretly poseess you
Open up your mind let your fantasies unwind
In this darkness which you know you cannot fight
The darkness of the music of the night

Let your mind start a journey through a strange new world
Leave all thoughts of the life you knew before
Let your soul take you where you long to be
Only then can you belong to me

Floating, folding, sweet intoxication
Touch me, trust me, savour each sensation
let the dream begin let your darker side give in
to the power of the music that I write
The power of the music of the night

You alone can make my song take flight
Help me make the music of the night
