The Beginning: Speak to Me - Breathe (Breath in the Air)
BREATHE, breathe in the air of life. Look around…choose your own ground. What you make of your life, and this ride, is your choice, this is your ride through life. Stop and take in the beauty of this adventure we call life and make the most of it. Smile, open yourself up to feel, cry, see and touch everything you can and experience the best life has to offer.
We all want to run at some point in our lives to escape our pressures, our fears, and our heartaches. The mood of this album, and its ingenious music, represent the spectrum of our emotions, which we tend to bury at times, leading us to thoughts of giving up. Totally release, let go, and hear the upbeat message telling us to act as if the whole world is at our fingertips and giving up is NOT an option.
Our lives CAN work in harmony if we keep our pressures in check. Fight the urge to run, take nothing for granted because even the POWERFUL sun can be darkened in and instant by the moon.
Dark Side of the Moon is about life and it’s challenging waves. It’s about choice – our choice to keep riding on the glory of the sun.
Reattach yourself to your adolescence and the dreams of your youth. Open your mind and surround yourself with the music, noticing the symbols used in the album, the heart beat, the sun, the moon, and the tides. They’re all cyclic, representing life with its constant change, enormous challenges, great beauty and importance.
Reach out and pursue a full life with the “Time” you have on this earth. Appreciate all the good things in your life and don’t dwell on the bad. The moon is actually lit up on both sides and depends on the position relative to the sun and earth – so there is LIGHT to find in the darkness, we just have to create the balance.
Everything under the sun is in tune when existence is true and beautiful. Don’t let the moon eclipse it all out with the waves of pressures that make us blind to that beauty. Embrace life and let everything under your sun fall in tune …… leaving The Dark Side Of The Moon.
