I’m feeling very thoughtful and short on words at the moment. A good recipe for blogging as apparently the younger generations don’t like to read, but they do like deep things. Here are some of my thoughts for today.
  • Putting others before yourself is highly rewarding
  • Spending at the very least a short amount of time every day to be alone, unwind, and talk to God in whatever way you do best is crucial to living well, and maintaining a low stress level
  • Laziness leads to frustration and eventually self-contempt
  • Shallow conversations lead to shallow relationships

As I have no more words to say, I leave you with a short message from my dear friend Yoda.

Rach on!

Ambience

I feel like I should give voice to one of my favorite types of music… Ambient.

Ambient music is mostly, if not completely electronic. Think of it as sort of a chill techno, although not all of it can be described that way. As with all types of music, there is much variation within the genre. I don’t know why, but I find this music very stimulating to the synapses of my brain. It puts me in a very contemplative mood. It is often harmonically driven, rather than melodically, which makes it perfect for certain things such as relaxing and clearing the mind of stressful things. It moves, yet it does not distract. It strives not to impress, but to inspire.

Here’s a good example of ambient music… The Outer Banks by The Album Leaf.

Some other good ambient artists apart from The Album Leaf are Tycho, Static, Explosions In The Sky, and Sigur Rós (although I wouldn’t consider all their music to be ambient). I would highly recommend giving them a listen.

Rach on!
