On Leaving This Planet

Mark de Clive-Lowe Leaving This Planet This whole divorce process has been a bitch to say the least. Emotional highs and lows, mental highs and lows, energy highs and lows and everything in between. Many nights, I felt like Leaving This Planet. Not in ways that are dismal or literal but I needed an escape. A spaceship. A hovercraft. A friendly alien to help me get into a space where I was safe from a crushing perceived reality. For the longest, Kaye West's song “Spaceship” was my theme song for so many reasons. Then I heard Mark de Clive-Lowe's “Leaving this Planet” (vocals by Sharlene Hector) and I started crying (not like a bitch but close). This was some time in the spring of 2011 when my world started to experience change. Sometimes, I would listen to “Leaving this Planet” on auto play repeat like I was the Rain Man or something. It calmed me. Made me wish. Made me……. This evening while driving home, I was reflecting on the events of my day and “Leaving this Planet” came on the iPod. At the moment, I started driving a little slower to enjoy the 4:47 minutes of happiness that the song brings me. Like most, I can use music as a marker for many events in my life. A life soundtrack if you will…. As time is passing, I’m only getting stronger. -------------------------------------------------------- Mark de Clive-Lowe - Leaving this Planet [audio http://mindspill.bygbaby.com/music/MarkdeClive-Lowe-LeavingthisPlanet.mp3|width=250|titles=Leaving this Planet|artists= Mark de Clive-Lowe]

    Man, we got alot in common other than being black, fat, from Detroit, having relatives from Alabama, loving thick women, ect.. I think about when my parents divorced decades ago, and it took years for them to get along again. And the relationship that I’m in now (which I’ve kept under the hat for months now-still remains as such) has been through some rough territory as the both of us are still testing the waters, as it were. Sometimes I feel the exact same way about just wanting to leave and be gone to the point where I’m just plain forgotten!

    But this, too, shall pass. Hopefully the two of you will bury the hatchet and at least rekindle your friendship with one another. BTW, I gotta check out that song you’ve linked. It sounds interesting.
