Melina Marchetta
“The music department is going to do a musical next year," he tells me, rolling his eyes like I would.
Justine is running toward me, and I can tell by the look on her face that she's found out about the musical, too.
I sigh, shaking my head. "I have to give Justine a lesson in holding back," I tell him. "She's just way too enthusiastic".

I scream hysterically, clutching her as we jump up and down.”

“There is a curious paradox that no one can explain. Who understands the secret of the reaping of the grain? Who understands why Spring is born out of Winter’s laboring pain, or why we must all die a bit before we grow again? I do not know the answer; I merely know it’s true. I hurt them for that reason, and myself a little bit too.”
Tom Jones

Steven Salvatore
“If I'm not wearing makeup or something androgynous, they see me as a boy. If I do dress more feminine or androgynous, they see a boy but a boy wearing eyeshadow or nail polish. It's easier for people to see what's on the outside than what's on the inside....You know how most people hear a song and only remember the thumping piano melody? I'm more than just that one instrument or one key. I exist in between notes, with backing vocals and lush harmonies.”
Steven Salvatore, Can't Take That Away

“The Music connects you with the Universe.”
Syed Sharukh

“Music is a feeling I cannot put down in words.
I see music.
I feel it in every fibre of my body and every part of my soul.
A harmony that touches my soul can release torrents within me and shake me to the very foundations, make me remember the good and the bad, hope, and despair.
Makes me dark and makes me light.”
Dahi Tamara Koch, Within the event horizon: poetry prose

“Music – I know my dreams within you.
I see you within me.
Music – I behold you.
I see you dancing with all the colours I carry within me.
When melodies make their way through the air
I feel you in all of my fibres and pores.
Music – only you infuse the deepest depths of my soul.
Make me move on to pastures new
and new shapes of my soul –
you make me safe and sound.”
Dahi Tamara Koch, Within the event horizon: poetry prose

I frown with displeasure and shake it off.

One day...”

“Loving that Drape,
Sound of Birds,
Play on like Musical Tape.

Greenery to Embrace,
Like Hug from Nature,
With Intricate Lace.

Sky to be Blanket,
Of Care, of Vivid Colours,
In Nature, I find Solace,
I find my Escape.”
