In response to today’s prompt…
I love music, and the multiple meanings and interpretations it takes on.
Music can move us – it inspires us, makes us cry, makes us smile, brings back a memory, creates a new memory, and it can also make us laugh, make us groan, or make us change the radio station altogether.
With music, whether one is able to carry a tune, or not, we choose to sing along with our voices or just lip syncing the words. There is nothing more funny than a woman lip syncing to a man’s voice, and vice versa. We’ve seen the best of lip syncing go viral on the internet. We find music that wakes us up in the morning, gets us motivated to start the day, music to exercise to, music to dance to, music to share as a couple, music that is symbolic of family, friends, and music for moments we’ll choose to forget in life. We pick our favorites based on groups, artists, decades, similar sound, or we can be all over the place with our choices. We can listen to music on mp3 players, CD players…or even one of those cool yellow Sony Walkman cassette players, if that is how you so choose to listen to those old tapes you’ve been listening to for the last 25 or 30 years. Don’t worry, I don’t judge.
So, however we hear it, however it moves us, however it motivates or de-motivates us, or however music takes us through life, it’s the rhythm of everything near, dear, important, unimportant, and everything in between.
