Mitara’s Blast From the Past


Finding my inspiration through the voice of music and poetry. Being creative and finding ways in making life easier and smarter for others.


Appreciate and Radiate

The melody

The tempo

The beat

Feel the echo

Makes me glide around

and move my feet

Expresses unspoken words

It feels so profound,

Turn up the sound

Make it nice and loud,

I prefer to be in tranquility

Way up in the clouds

A meditational trance

You can’t help but dance

No stressful thoughts

It should not be allowed

Appreciate and radiate

that is the best time your

Ideas to create

Music to me

As I sit here, thinking of the many challenges and experiences that I have dealt with aside from the thought of writing back then, music played a very dedicated part in me dealing and moving through the different stages of my life.

Music fed a part of my soul that I was not able to articulate or express to myself, let alone to the world. The tempo was always decided upon my waking up in the mornings and my sense of the day or from the outcome of my day.

To this day I have music playing in the background echoing tranquil, pleasant and comforting pleasure to my soul.

If I sometimes, hear a song from the good old days, it instantly takes me to a certain memory that reflects so clearly in my mind like it was only yesterday.

My memory zones me to the place, the smell and every feeling that surrounded me at that point.

For me its always a great source of thinking, finding those looming creative ideas that make its grand appearance just when you about to give up, or handling those anxious sometimes unsettling feelings.

Most music are expressed with words, others, just by the melody, I felt it expressing my inner feeling by unspoken words.

Music does not interfere with your daily tasks, it actually alleviates the irritation and unnecessary overwhelming stress, soothes the mind to a sense of good vibes and composure.

I would like to introduce you to the mix, I have always listened to, including current times for inspiration, motivation and encouragement.

The mix has always filled me with an abundant sense of love, light, happiness, positivity and would like to share with a community that encourages me daily.

Appreciating artists far and wide including local talent

Music and talent share the same foundational building blocks. Talent is defined as someone who has a God-given natural skill and ability to be good at something, especially without being taught.

Music and your every day language share a bond of being compositional. They are made of small parts that merge in creating something larger and more meaningful.

There are a number of talent out there, while listening to various genre's that you come across, and feel so strong on their way of expressing their passion for music to the soul.

Their production of beauty in all forms places you in a meditational trance, that allows you to appreciate their mix and take on understanding the harmony of expression.

Introducing you to the talent I came across

I enjoy and appreciate many genre's of music, here are a few cultural music video's that I have come across and would like to share.

Please feel free to play, while driving, reading, exercising, working, cooking or having good quality family time.

Hi Mitara! I grew up in a household of musician's! My father was a music teacher and my sister's and I all played an instrument in school. So, I definitely relate to MUSIC! LOVE IT!

Rajan Singh Jolly from From Mumbai, presently in Jalandhar, INDIA. on April 08, 2020:

Music is food for the soul and brings to life our past experiences related to it as clear as yesterday living them once more as vividly as then.

Absolutely agree, music automatically brings thoughts into perspective and allows you to re-live cherished moments.

Your comments are always appreciated

It's amazing how we can hear a song and we instantly remember what we were doing when we first heard that song. For me it's a memory that spans six decades and yet it is very clear. :)

Hi Liz,

I agree with your words, takes us back into time

Always appreciate your comments

Music has a role to play in our lives. Often a familiar tune from way back can transport us back many years.

I must say Ruby, you have fabulous taste, your list is also music to my heart.

Ruby Jean Richert from Southern Illinois on March 26, 2020:

Very intertaining article. My favorite music is country, especially George Jones, Elvis Presley, Ray Charles and Loretta Lynn. I also love gospel music.

Mitara N (author) from South Africa on March 26, 2020:

I know right, you get the exact feeling too. The picture flow in your mind, allows your imagination to get the better of you.

It places you in a different mood and frame of mind altogether.

Total meditational moment....

Always appreciative of your comments Kyler

When I listen to the one you already included in the article it has a comedic effect on me, makes me laugh. Not because the sentiments within are totally humorous, but more like I'm floating through some sort of river made from segues of different colors of clouds. The narrator's voice is like a subconscious breath on the wind. Not sure why the video makes me feel that way, but that's the imagery it gives me.

Mitara N (author) from South Africa on March 26, 2020:

Thanks for the link, the tune itself places you in a meditational trance, the words are strong. I enjoyed that very much.

Music is definitely apart of us, I appreciate all types of music, it opens up new meaning to certain feelings that you can't put into words.

Thank for your feedback on your likes, I have a mix, that I will send through shortly or just add on and let you know, I would like for you to take a listen and let me know what you think, its a cultural mix.

Kyler J Falk from California on March 25, 2020:

I play music, nearly, 24/7 for my son and I. All different genres and times, all different cultures and backgrounds. Music just seems to make everything better, especially when you find something new to listen to. I'm really into the 60's-80's modern blend music right now. Like the band Gunship that does only modern 80's sounds. Give it a listen and tell me what you think!
