Sometimes it’s hard being soft. Sure, you have your purpose statement, your list of values, your power spots or altars in pretty much every room. But for many men our normal procedure is to cover up our dreams, to say , “Oh, it’s okay.” It’s really hard for us sometimes to receive from other people, as well as it’s really difficult to say, “Gee, I’m valuable, I have a purpose, what I have is really going to help others,” rather than just keeping it in.
Fortunately, there is hope. Leading Marin County life coaches have suggested that sensitive men can use music to communicate our dreams to others. In this spirit I present to you fymaxwell’s sensitivity training workshop, sixty minutes of ungoogleable teenage synth pop, private-issue AOR, impossibly rare 80s psych, and minor major-label SSW, collected and compiled by yours truly.
Please download, listen, and share. And don’t be afraid to cry. In fact, let your tears be the sea upon which we together launch a vey large clipper ship with enormous pink and lavender and aqua sails. Come, join me and your brave brothers as we set sail on a journey of musical self-affirmation.
