Before you answer today's question, go put some music on. This is really important. Whether it is the radio, or your iPod on random, or Pandora, or whatever other method you have for listening to music, go do it. Now. Music is one of those amazing things that tells a story, brings images and memories to the surface, helps you feel joy or pain or simply the desire to dance. I can't possibly express how much I enjoy music. As I've aged, the music that I listen to has shifted slightly; I'm sure this happens to most people. The music I like now I would probably have been horrified by at 13 and simply confused by at 18, but I like a wide variety of music. I like alternative rock, dance music, hip hop, blues, jazz, classical, oldies rock, some country... and on and on. I just like music.
So here's the question: What song are you listening to right now? Who is it by? What does it make you think of? How does it make you feel?
