Thomas Bergersen is part of my favourite Group Two Steps from Hell. He composes lots of other amazing music apart from the epics for Two Steps from Hell.
In March 2020, Thomas Bergerson announced the seven part album series Humanity. Humanity is intended to be a seven part album series exploring all aspects of human emotion.
On 1 July 2020, Humanity Chapter I was released. The first chapter’s focus is on freedom, strength and unity, bringing many musical cultures together in a colorful and expressive way.
On 11 November 2020, Humanity Chapter II was added. Chapter II is about our families, children, dreams and desires, our legacy, our hardship, heroism, fate and purpose.
On 6 May 2021 Humanity – Chapter III was released. With Chapter III, Thomas wanted to take a soft approach to exploring the deepest, purest and perhaps the most fulfilling feelings we can experience as humans on this planet.
♥ Love ♥
He describes in this emotional chapter emotions of love during life as you can see from the titles: Sparks, Red, First Kiss, Butterflies, You are my home, Magic, Born to dream, Little star, Growing old together, Until the lights go out, It was a life worth living, Love suite, You, Sunshower.
The album, I dare say my favourite Humanity album, is amazing, there are no words to describe it really.
Every title is really bringing the emotions out with the orchestra.
My all time favourite from this album is Until the lights go out with piano and guitar.
This track is so peaceful, so calming; I want to hear it when I am at the end of my life, ready to go to the maker and have it played at my funeral.
I am practising it on the guitar, it is so beautiful.
In the meanwhile Chapter IV is out too; If you like it – look out for it.
Thomas has a facebook page here where you can stream his music.
Today I am cheesy – it is an important day – my 60th Birthday.
So I collected some age related words and advice:
“Youth is happy because it has the capacity to see beauty. Anyone who keeps the ability to see beauty never grows old.” ― Franz Kafka
Today is the oldest you’ve been and the youngest you’ll ever be again.
They’re called the golden years for a reason. Getting older has its perks. For one, you’re good at using what you’ve learned. This is called crystalized intelligence, and it keeps getting better, even when you’re 65 or 70.
Older people might control their emotions better, and focus more on how to make the most of life.
You probably know that exercise and diet are important when it comes to aging well. But there is something else you control that can help you along: a positive attitude.Research shows more and more that your approach to life may be just as important in making your “golden years” your best years.
Aging: It’s in Your Mind
The Power of Optimism
It’s difficult to know what comes first — the good health or the positive attitude.
One possible answer is they build on each other: A rosy outlook may help you exercise more and eat better. And that in turn helps you stay hopeful and happy because you feel better. You may hear that called a “virtuous circle.”
Optimism has been linked to living longer.
Things you can do include:
Check yourself. If you’re having negative thoughts, pause and see whether there’s a better way to look at what’s bothering you.
Seek out humor and laughter
Make time for things that give you joy
Find positive people and hang out with them
With this in mind,
help yourself to some cake and Champagne to celebrate with me.
