The peaceful while surreal environment gave me hope. Seaside tides sounded relaxing while calming my mind. Mystical crisp amid mellow piano notes were being played; perfectly accompanying wire brush sticks tapped the drum set in harmony. This was the coolest café jazz I’d heard in a long time. It was so refreshing; ideal settings for a chilled moment of bliss.
Having time to unwind sends chills down anyone’s back. Unquestionably, vibrations from tranquil surroundings are a way to encounter utopia; a state of peacefulness to recuperate energy and distress. Whereas my daughter prefers the bustle of a nightclub to dance the night away which is her way of reaching oblivion to obliviate her stresses.
However, that gentle music that's playing in the background at your local cafe has likely been carefully selected in order to create the perfect atmosphere for sipping on your favorite hot and cold drinks. Cafe music can include many different musical styles. It has become a genre in and of itself in recent years.
Now that I’m a teetotaler it seems to resonate with my new outlook. Change is a good state to be in right now. Age has set in, and consequently a more laid back and calming maturity to life echoes calmness. Now all that’s missing is one of Arnie’s thick Cuban cigars to give the edge of absolute coolness.
Life is about choices. Drinking was the cool thing to do during my younger years. There are no regrets and who knows if my teetotaler experience will last forever.
