Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy.
Music should strike fire from the heart of man, and bring tears form the eyes of woman.
-Ludwig Van Beethoven
Mm. I'm guessing now you know what today's topic is going to be.
Lately it seems I've rediscovered my passion for music, and how. Which explains the sudden love for musicals and soft music, oldies, Diana Ross. And the complete and utter fascination with instruments -
I saw "Raise your Voice" today, the movie with Hilary Duff at that elitist music school [I know, I was dragged] but.. I was entrapt. The instrumentals in that movie were absolutely amazing. And I've fallen even more in love with Philip after stumbling on his site today, he has a whole index of music he wrote, and fixed up, and plays.. and he's so good.
It's started me thinking.. isn't it almost amazing that people our age can be so talented? That high school students can play piano or clarinet, or cello so well that you're leaning off your seat eager to hear more. Or that they can sing so well you want to cry, or kiss them, or just record a cd of their voice and play it over and over. I mean, you thought something was good, but a teenager, just a student can take it and turn it into something you'd never even imagined.
God I wish I could be part of that. I can't make anything that beautiful, I can't stun anybody into silence when I sing and I can't play any instrument to save my life. I wish I could, and mostly I wish that people who can realize it, and don't waste it. It's such a wonderful thing to move people with your music, I hope you remember that, and you hold onto whatever your talents may be.
Me, in the mean time, I'll just be waiting for the next time I'm home alone and I can turn my stero up, close my eyes, and sing as loudly and badly as I damn well please. I may not be getting any recognition or audiences, but hey - woe is the life of the tone-deaf. Stay frosty all, Ciao!
