Regardless of who you are, what you do and where you are from, we all have one thing in common – music.
We listen to music when we play. We listen to music when we study and read. We listen to music when we drive down the road, when we run relax and even sleep. When we don’t feel like talking, music sometimes speaks to and for us. Lyrics fill the air around and we feel connected to the notes being played or the words sung.
We listen to music when we are feeling somber and thoughtful. We listen to music when we are down and feeling blue, when we are lonely, when we are tired. We listen through pain and suffering, hurt and anger. We also dance and sing to songs and melodies that fill us with happiness and bring tears of joy to our eyes.
While our preferences may vary, we can always be moved by music.
Music has been a large part of my personal life. From the time I was young, I have always had an interest in all different genres of music and instruments. I began playing the piano at a very young age, but really didn’t know what I was doing. I took piano lessons for about a month and decided I really didn’t care to know how to read music. I have developed my own style of playing and I enjoy creating music and playing. Below is a sample of a song written for my wife.
This song reminds me of my my time living in Tennessee and having nightly Skype dates with my wife (girlfriend at the time). Even 400 miles away, our relationship flourished and I have been blessed with such an incredible woman and many, many wonderful memories. I hope this song can speak to you in its own way. Whether you are feeling uplifted, downcast, troubled or indifferent. What does music say to you?
