This song is probably my most favorite out of all the Star Trek music I own. It's measured, smooth, has a nice, relatively continuous base, and yet it still has a clear melody.
Lately I've had that funny, weightless, breathless feeling you get from falling off a huge cliff. I just jumped off, and I'm falling--flying--but I'm so concerned with the ground that I can't enjoy the view; I can't enjoy the sensation.
Life is like falling off a cliff. We look down, we jump, and all our lives we're falling towards the ground. But we're so preoccupied with that ground that's going to smash us into a million tiny bits, that we can't stop to enjoy the feeling of freefall.
There have been a million times in the past few days when I've wanted to stop and just wallow in my emotions; experience moments to their fullest. But I never can, because there is always something else. The ground is always there.
I will probably spend my entire life -- the entire fall off the cliff -- wishing there was no ground, but to no avail.
And maybe I should just stop trying to be so damn deep, and get on with my life, ground or no ground.
