Comfortably Numb — on repeat

TimesArrow_silver


Ok, I admit it. I’ve been listening to Pink Floyd’s Comfortably Numb for a few days now. I watched a documentary on them last week and felt compelled to listen to it — on repeat.

Song lyrics mean different things to different people. My interpretation is around the central theme of lost time, of almost seeing and holding onto a vision for my life but letting it slip away due to fear and inertia.

A child exposed to torpidity is a tough gig. Even now, I want to hide out, shrink my mental activity by binge-watching TV, staying comfortably numb to my life.

 
Don’t live the same year 75 times and call it a life.

The dream isn’t gone for me. I started out designing jewelry for myself, as an armor against the daily battles with inertia, then wanting to share my creativity with no expectation other than to inspire and empower.

 
Time is a dressmaker specializing in alterations.

I’ve transformed my life through sheer force of will, turning to look straight ahead. I now think that fleeting glimpse I spied as a child is my creativity and I’m becoming more ME every day.

Thanks for reading my blog. Most times, I design a piece of jewelry out of a need to create, to act as a reminder, to represent a period in my life. Sometimes it’s just to see if I can do it!
