This is a song in progress. It was actually based on an old short musical piece which I then called “Guitar Bow Piece” because I experimented with playing a guitar with a bow. But I actually really liked the melody and atmosphere of it and it gave me the vague feeling of “opening up”. This feeling was really similar to what I have been thinking about lately.
Since I have been reading “Everyone is an Artist” and “The Ethics of Authenticity”, I started to gain a new understanding about my quest (and the modern quest in general) for living an authentic life. I even started blogging about it. But views from authors like from the books I mentioned, made me realise how much we can become obsessed by self-fulfilment, and finding our true selves, that we can become “locked in our own hearts”. The authors believe that the value of authenticity is beautiful, but they think that nowadays we tend to close ourselves off and care less for causes beyond the self. I myself was really involved in this modern quest for authenticity, and I see it around me everyday. So when having read these books, I wanted to open up a bit more to the world around me. And I think this is important for everyone. This song will be about this process of opening up.
