Evening Page ~ Music

A few months back I wondered what it would be like to keep a journal of remembrances: 365 days of Music--or something along those lines. What if I took a song and compiled a journal that included a strong memory for each song? I don't know...it's just that songs have a way of evoking so much...memories, events, milestones. Music is a big part of my life. Each person that has meant something to me has left their mark in the form of music. I grew up listening to music played by my older brothers. They listened to rock, soul, R&B, country, classical. When I was a little girl and I was alone, I would put on my brother's Wham record and dance around the house. One of my other favorites that is still a favorite to this day is Jingo by Santana. I still dance around the house when I play that song. The drums speak to every bone in my body. 

I like just about every type of music there is. And just like with books, there will be countless artists that I never hear or learn about because it's impossible.

yes, what an interesting idea. each person has left their mark with music- that's pretty much perfect and i utterly agree.

Kind of like a soundtrack of our lives...I wonder if there's a book of fiction written around music. I'll have to do a search. I'm finding myself in the mood to read that sort of book.

I am constantly seeking the soundtrack of my life, as if each moment deserves a special song to sutain the gravity of it, you know?
