I go away for 3 weeks. There is no wifi everywhere I look. Only mountains, steppes, trees, grass, bushes, streams, rivers, scattered villages, the odd farmer. Beautiful Siberia and Mongolia.
But everyday during those 3 weeks, I panic. Am I missing so much happening in Archudom? His new music is out, I’m sure of it! His new music is out and I’m missing all the fun and fanfare!
So now I’m back. Straight into Archuland. Woah, eyes on the ball, ears finely tuned and heart palpitating.
No, I was wrong. No new music. I was disappointed. My emotions felt stretched. I was struck by the feeling of doom that I am forever waiting for something that is never going to happen. And that’s very upsetting.
But why should I feel that way, I ask myself after having calmed down.
Afterall, there had been posted so many delightful pics by our wonderfu Archies. There were vids. News of sold-out shows. David himself had posted pics and instagrams. There was even happy news about his Christmas shows with Nathan Pacheco. I should be very happy for David. And for all the excited Archies.
The fact is I have not completed my process of learning. About not being greedy for what others can give me. About not being demanding. About never expecting and assuming. About not being paranoid with the actions of others. So that annoying young man is not yet ready to publish his new music. So what. Keep waiting. So there are a few more lines in his musical head he is not willing to put down. So what. What are you going to do about it?! Simple. Swallow your emotions, now rendered extremely fragile, and pray. That’s his lesson No. 1001 to us. 😉 😉
Following David Archuleta seems to be a never-ending lesson of learning about life, about dealing with patience. Jeeezz .. learning from a young man decades younger is an exasperating thought. But there you go … all kinds of things happen in this world. Especially after you’ve met David Archuleta. 😛
Yes, David, continue to play hide-and-seek with us! 😀
Trouble is, I never learn. Not when it comes to David Archuleta. I can preach all I want to others and to myself. But this mixed ball of confusion will continue for as long as that young man gives any indication of continuing to sing.
Is all this upp-ing and down-ing and all the in-betweens mixed emotions killing me? Or izzit making me stronger?? – in order to continue having more and more upp-ings and down-ings and experience more mixed emotions in the future??? It boggles the mind just thinking about it!
But we forgive him for all our emotions of whatever genre the moment he stands before us to sing. I think I can say this for all of us Archies! 😀
In this vid, David talks about Emotions. That we need to go through all those emotional ups and downs. (around 2.10) Hmm … 😀 😀
