Good morning all, technically, it’s mid-morning. Eh, I don’t care. 🙂
It’s Tuesday and as I promised I would be doing a prompt today.
But first the prompt:
18. How does music sound to you?
Wow, Charlie, what a doozy of a prompt you just picked.
Well, that depends on the type of music I happen to be listening to, doesn’t it?
Okay, okay. It’s not how I feel about the piece of music being played. It’s how it sounds to me. I like to be fully immersed in the music that’s playing. It’s a little frustrating to me that I can’t put my blue headphones on and let the music surround me.
I like being carried away by the notes, the instruments, the words, what have you. Sometimes, if I am concentrating I can pick out an instrument and follow it throughout the song. I don’t have the vocabulary to properly describe how music sounds to me. I lost that a long time ago when I stopped taking piano lessons.
I loved playing the piano, but I desperately hated playing for others. Recitals were killers for me. Having my mom
tell command me to play for people killed me. I hated being the center of attention – I still do, but I handle it better now.
Music has been a constant in my life. I remember being very young and listening to my radio until I feel asleep. It was a country station (I don’t know why) but it soothed me as I feel asleep. I also slept with a night-light for longer than I care to admit. I’m not sure why I was such a fearful child, but I was.
Okay, so I’m not sure I did the prompt justice, but that’s what I’ve got. By the way, if you have another prompt for me, I’ll be happy to take a stab at it.
By the by, this is what was playing while I wrote this.
