I’ve discovered that music is the only thing that stops me from reading or writing.
A melody jars me so that I have to stop and listen.
It’s a different language than my words that encompasses things I can’t express in the ways I’m familiar.
It’s alive in the way my words are but it’s speaking.
My words in writing are translated through the individual mindset they reach.
As are the words I read.
But, music, it needs no words.
It just sings.
