“Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and life to everything.” -Plato
At this moment, I’m listening to music. And I love it. Some music permits you to do nothing other than appreciate it in that moment. I love that kind of music. The kind of music that takes hold of you and captures you so fully that you don’t know how you could do anything else other than listen to it in that moment.
It’s amazing to me how the voice of other people and our man made instruments have the capability to do that to us. How it can give us goosebumps and chills and make us question different aspects about out lives. Music is so powerful and influential and so innate to our being.
I know to me, music is so personal. I’m sure this is true for many people…music has the capability to move each of us in indescribable ways. It truly is incredible. When we’re preparing for the biggest race of our lives and need a little motivation, music can push us to make us believe that we can do it. When we’re sad and all alone, music can ensure us that we are not alone. It can cheer us up on our bad days and even make us feel invincible when we’re weak. It has the ability to transport us to better days and happier memories and give us inspiration to continue in the hope for the best days and happiest memories. Music is amazing.
With a few strums of the guitar and a beautiful, accompanying voice, we can do anything.
