At the moment, I'm down with Malaria++ and Typhoid++. Last night was a crazy night; my body temperature was so high such that you could fry some eggs with the hotness of my body.

I had to take an injection at the hospital today to stabilise my feverish body, then I was placed on a drip. This I'd continue for 2 more days (morning and evening) with injections.

During this crisis and chaos, all I could think about was Peace, Serenity and Tranquility. Strange right?

How do you search for peace in the midst of Calamities, hardship and difficulties?

I recall some of the "countless" times I've visited different "Beaches" in Lagos State, Nigeria.

The coolness of the breeze, Serenity of the atmosphere and ambience would make you fall in love with nature one more time. Yet, the world we live in is a pretty harsh and chaotic one.

Surely, we yearn for peace in the midst of Chaos, Serenity in the midst of anxiety and Tranquility in the midst of Commotion.

We know how impossible it is for the whole world to ride on the wings of peace. Hell yeah! Some people love the chaos and they benefit economically from it.

Amidst this, we strive hard on our own part and we do this for our peace of mind and our well-being.

☆ MUSIC - PEACE


Asides admiring the beauty of nature, another great source of peace is MUSIC.

Music can take you to a different realm and grant you peace even while you experience depression, heart break, toxic relationship and all forms of negativity.

It can act as a sedative!


Thus, reflecting on this theme, I thought it will be nice to also share some of my musical videos that portray this theme, albeit partially or fully.

I'll share 3 videos, one from 3 of my most cherished musical instruments: Saxophone, Piano and Guitar.

Maybe this post could also serve as my entry for the Three Tunes Tuesday, an initiative that was started by @ablaze

☆ BLESSED ASSURANCE - SAXOPHONE


I'll begin with a Christian song which many of us know, Blessed Assurance. The song speaks of the assurance we have in Christ in whose blood we've been washed off our sins.

What other forms of peace can overshadow that which we gain in Christ?

Sharing this song reminds me of how much I've missed my saxophone. It also reminds me of how much I've missed playing with @ernesto6402. Those musical collaborations have a way of taking off stress, anxiety and depression, replacing them with Peace, Tranquility and Serenity.

☆ CANON IN DMAJOR - PIANO/KEYBOARD


Canon in D major is one Classical piece I love so much. The calm movement and ambience it creates is second to none.

Well, in a way, I've also missed playing the Piano and I hope to find a way to reduce this lack, as it is a necessity.

☆ CAN'T HELP FALLING IN LOVE - GUITAR


Oh well, many people know me and the guitar so well. Hence, I cannot but share a piece with the guitar.

This is one of my most cherished Romantic Songs by Elvis Presley. The calmness of the song radiates the precious theme of romance, and it surely takes romance to a wonderful dimension, that single people like me cannot relate with at the moment.

The three songs I shared are songs of different Genres and with different musical instruments. While one speaks of Peace in Christ, the other radiates peace as a Classical piece, yet the last also speaks of peace romantically. All three share one thing in common: PEACE, TRANQUILITY AND SERENITY.

And by the way, I wrote this piece after I came back from my evening injection.

So sorry sweetheart, I hope you are getting better now and not like me 🤧🤧

Yea, music is one of the ways to find peace, Serenity and Tranquility. It is a natural sedative, natural drugs that doesn't cause harm like the regular narcotic (cocaine and the rest). God is wonderful, you know?

I know you'll love the last one more 😏 shey is you dah say I shuu play it nau 😏

Thanks babe 🥰 sharing the same hugs and kisses to you too 🥰

I'm so sorry to hear about your health, may God perfect your healing ❤️

A friend of mine will say "I just want dey". All of us wan "dey". The chaos grabs at our minds, peace keeps us sane. God knew this when He gave nature, it's such a thoughtful gift.

I can't decide which is my favorite the first or second song you shared. Thanks for sharing and take care🤗

This was such a beautiful post, @ksam and my first introduction to you as a writer and musician.

To find such creativity and talent is always a joy but to find someone who writes about peace, tranquillity and serenity while experiencing fever and the chaos inflicted by not one but two diseases is awe-inspiring.

I wish you every success and pray that you make a full recovery very soon. 💛

Sorry, you are going through that tough time, I will admit I hate being sick and at this time I always get drawn to the seas as I love the peaceful atmosphere it brings, I also agree with music being one of the things that helps calm us in this time.. I can't help falling in love is the music I have found myself falling over heels for.

Mhen, it hasn’t been easy at all... going to the hospital morning and evening for drip and injection is really nauseating. I didn't think I'd experience this at this moment coupled with the cost, since it's a private hospital.

Well, I thank God I'm getting better now.

Awwwn, I glad you feel in love with one of the music 😍😍😍

We do tend to think about life when we are going through a phase.

It can act as a sedative!

Music does acts as sedatives. I listen to music whenever I feel down. Thank you for the three music.

I wish you quick recovery, take good care of yourself. Take your medications on time and keep yourself hydrated

This was wonderful ksam... truly... I love the Elvis love song, it has always been one of my faves, and the way you play it is so uplifting. Such a beautiful rendition. Canon in D major is another one I adore. You are a blessed and talented musician.... and Blessed Assurance to top it off... great selections! I came to your post from Dreemport this evening I do hope you recover quickly fromyour illnesses. That's a lot to be dealing with and still have a smile on your face :-) !ALIVE !PIZZA

Shit man!! I hope you are feeling better by now and the worst has passed, get well soon.

Great job on the saxophone, I can imagine that is a tough instrument to play, but you nailed it, well done. Then you hit up the piano and guitar too, impressive stuff man..
