Balearic Breakfast | Episode 14 | Lonely walks...

Updated: Apr 30, 2023

Worldwide FM broadcast the 14th episode of Balearic Breakfast on December 1st 2020.

Let's go for a walk on a lonely shore... :

December. Wow. After so many months of uncertainty, we were all seeing the end of 2020 approaching. So many people had died from Covid, so many Families suffered from the pandemic, from the restrictions, so many companies had to close, so many old people left lonely, empty streets and boulevards all around the world allowing nature to glow like never before... The world was upside down. Yet we were going to celebrate Christmas in a few days. Wow. Still in lockdown at the time, all we had ahead of us, really, was music, and Balearic Breakfast. This show was our Anchor. And it still is to this very day (February 2023 as I'm writing these lines).

Strangely, or maybe not after all..., the Balearic Breakfast Family magic happened again in this December's edition of our beloved show. Listening to this show, can you picture the ocean's pounding waves while your lonely soul walks on the shore during the sunset ? ...

I get so god damn lonely and sad and filled with regrets some days. It overwhelms me as I’m sitting on the bus; watching the golden leaves from a window; a sudden burst of realisation in the middle of the night. I can’t help it and I can’t stop it. I’m alone as I’ve always been and sometimes it hurts…. but I’m learning to breathe deep through it and keep walking. I’m learning to make things nice for myself. To comfort my own heart when I wake up sad. To find small bits of friendship in a crowd full of strangers. To find a small moment of joy in a blue sky, in a trip somewhere not so far away, a long walk an early morning in December, or a handwritten letter to an old friend simply saying ”I thought of you. I hope you’re well.”
No one will come and save you. No one will come riding on a white horse and take all your worries away. You have to save yourself, little by little, day by day. Build yourself a home. Take care of your body. Find something to work on. Something that makes you excited, something you want to learn. Get yourself some books and learn them by heart. Get to know the author, where he grew up, what books he read himself. Take yourself out for dinner. Dress up for no one but you and simply feel nice. it’s a lovely feeling, to feel pretty. You don’t need anyone to confirm it.
I get so god damn lonely and sad and filled with regrets some days, but I’m learning to breathe deep through it and keep walking. I’m learning to make things nice for myself. Slowly building myself a home with things I like. Colors that calm me down, a plan to follow when things get dark, a few people I try to treat right. I don’t sometimes, but it’s my intent to do so. I’m learning.I’m learning to make things nice for myself. I’m learning to save myself.
I’m trying, as I always will.
