The absence of sunshine always brought me down. But I learnt something very important through song-writing and poetry.
Every thing is an allegory. There is beauty in everything, If you only look. A cloudy day can take you to memories of summers in your mind. They can show you something you never noticed, an idea, a wild imagination.
Music is the key to finding the beauty on a rainy day.
Next time the cloudy days get to you, do this:
- Notice the atmosphere, notice the sky.
- Put on some jazz, because jazz will just make sense, on a gloomy day.
- Make yourself a hot drink.
- Write down your feelings.
These are the artists I listen to on a gloomy day:
- Billie Holiday
- Julie London
- Sigur Ros
- Pink Floyd
- Charles Aznavour
Create your own personal rituals for every kind of mood.
What are some songs that soothe your mind on a gloomy day?
Share in comments, I would love to know.
Have a warm day.
