Dive in

The reason why I heart media is that it gives me the opportunity to stay concentrated and focussed. Living in a big, loud city often makes it hard or even impossible to sit in front of your desk, stay calm and get your stuff done. But when I start listening to music, especially classical or piano the world and everything around stops tugging me and I can finally sink in those beautiful stories. Those which carry you far far away from the place you used to be. Those where you are an outsider at first but then slowly become a part of. Those marvelous tales which you just cannot let go. Those which let you feel invincibility and boundless freedom. You drop deeper and deeper and the way back seems far away. You reach the final door and open it. With a large bang the story is over the song you listened to ends. All of it is clear now. Your view is changed. You can now commence to become the person you crave to be. Even when you were unaware of it before. Each time you are evolving. It is hard to say if in a good way or not but the important thing is that you can constantly shift it. You just have to plug your headphones back in and disappear in a sea of words.
