You make me feel like a natural woman, coming into this space, I lost myself in your world - your world of words, of lyrics, of sound, of that hollowing depth of calling my name in the far distant, my name, echoing in between the sunlight that dances in the air.
Life is kind, oh so kind, that I found you. It is a wonder, at times, that I can't even bring myself to believe it. Yes, you. You are the love of my life. MUSIC.
Among those vinyls, among the player, I discovered that I don't need a great deal in life. My life is intertwined with the cables beneath my feet, but that is all okay. I mind not as you make me feel natural, and complete, in this space that can only inspire me to be more, ever more than I could imagine myself to be. You dusted that long-gone hope that I had to chase after my dreams. My soul was found beneath the notes, strung together by the pluck of strings on the lonely guitar hiding at the corner.

I can sit here all day, dreaming and humming away to my favourite tune, but I think I shall put on my golden boots, and that 70s dress and pants, my best face forward and brave myself to pick up the instrument, once again, to salvage my broken soul. The fire is burning again, deep down in me, for it is only natural for me to get to know my SELF, all over again.
Carole King, you are the best.
