The music in my mind
I love music. Ironically, you will hardly ever find music on in my house or even in my car.
I love the sound of silence. There are so many beats, pulses and tempo’s going on in the world around us. You just have to take the opportunity to hear it. Like right now I can hear the hum of the computer and the pulse of the dehumidifier.
I have so many tunes and lyrics running through my mind, minute by minute that I almost always forget that there is no music on. I drove 15 miles this morning before I noticed that I had turned the radio off yesterday. I could put on an entire musical show with the songs my brain comes up with. Normally, the music stays in my head… and sometimes, when the silence grabs me, I start to sing out loud.
I think a lot of people are uncomfortable with silence. There has to be some sort of action going on… a TV, a radio, conversation. I just like to hear what the air has to offer.
