Nothing beats the feeling of waking up to mum's singing. No matter which song's being sung.
My mum has been singing for a very long time. More than twenty years i guess. She gets so engrossed in it that nothing can distract her. Have never seen her passionate about anything else other than music. It was during my school days when i gave Carnatic music a try. Which went on for few years and then i quit 'cos din't want to take the exam. After which i lost interest and never went back to it. Even today i hardly listen to any kind of music.
Mum always wanted me to sing. It was one of her dream and i know she was hurt when i quit. But till now never once has she spoken about it to me. Has never forced me into it 'cos when its about things like music and art, you can't force anyone into it. You are passionate about it or not. Simple as that. She understood this pretty well.
When i told her about my blog, could see the happiness in her eyes. So when she read what i had been writing, what she said made more sense to me than anything else. She said all of us need a way to express ourselves. For some its through music, for few its dance and for those like me.. its writing.
We shouldn't think about being good at it. Should do it 'cos end of the day it makes us happy.
