Thanks for taking the time, Darren. I sit once again in my little world with the tunes playin'. The family is nestled in for the evening, it's a wonderful time.
Nice analogy, by the by...
"Have you had the experience of hearing a song for the first time....."
Without a doubt. Recently, "Picture" comes to mind, Kidd Rock and Sheryl Crow. Not so recently, Bobby Gentry's "Ode to Billy Joe", Led Zep's "Thank You", Sabbath's "Changes", they are just moving pieces of work. There are too many to list. Some folks see music as nothing more than a title, or some novelty item to get them through the day, or help the trip move a little faster.
I like to think I am a proponent of dissolution into the aforementioned. Just becoming a part of the intricate pieces that make up the whole of something I haven't necessarily created, but am a strong part of, I feel this what the artisans strive for in writing their works. Making folks a part of themselves.
Round and round we go, I still can't understand, never will, how folks just don't feel anything when handed a tastey dish of old blues, or some Vivaldi, reading some Poe, whatever it may be y'know? It's all about what "floats your boat", I guess.
Just curious about ones who are content with watching it go under.
I thank you for your thoughts, hope this made some sorta sense! Lol!
Keep passion in your life, bro' D...
