When I decided to do a writing challenge for February, I didn’t want to do the expected. February is synonymous with love. Like other retail holidays, stores are abundant with the red and pink packaging of goods. The card aisle is abundant with “I love you” decorated in glittery hearts.
I know I’m not in the minority when I say that all of this is sickening.
Love isn’t all happiness and good times. Yes, that’s great but it’s so much more. It’s dark. It’s painfully regretful. It’s an open wound. This is what I wanted to focus on. The beautifully dark aspect of love. Once I decided on that, I felt the need to deliver the message in a unique way.
This is where music comes into play.
For the month of February, all posts (with the exception of Wisdom Wednesdays), will consist of memories from my romantic life and a corresponding love song.
Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you Love: A Musical Retrospective. Enjoy!
