Oh what a gift is music. It is but a simple thing, these sounds we call music.
Music is color. It paints pictures in my mind, sweeping vistas and tragic landscapes, rolling hills of green. Tender dewdrops on a petal soft rose, the rush of a thousand rivers to the silent sparkle of newly fallen snow.
Lush, electric and alive. Intoxicating, liberating and primal. It is emotion. Raw and simple, plain and beautiful.
Music wraps itself in fond memory and instantly transports me back in time. Music can stimulate. It forces yet gently prods to emotional highs and bittersweet lows.
Music is powerful. It is bold and commanding yet subtle with soft whispers and gentle kisses promising the foreverness of love and the joy of life. It is uplifting. It is strong, brave and true.
It is a necessity and my life would be hollow without it.
