And I think to myself, what a wonderful world…

Louis Armstrong’s perspective of the world was truly a remarkable one. Either he was brought up in a much more beautiful place with much cheerier people, or perhaps he was simply much more optimistic that I am.

It could be true that love changes the way you view the world. It could be that it makes people happier so they see the good in things rather than the bad. Or perhaps, it was his love of music and his way of expressing himself freely through jazz that made him appreciate the world more and gave him an escape from all the negative things around him.

Listening to, and playing music gives me that freedom to stop thinking about everything. Sends me into a false sense of peace and security with myself.
