I came to the conclusion a long time ago that the music just isn't in me. I think people are either music people and not. My hubby is a music person. He's always singing to himself, making up songs, and is currently learning to play the guitar. Music is just part of his psyche. It's like he's got a continuous life soundtrack playing in his head.
I see people all over the place with ear buds plugged into their head, streaming music into their brains.
I just don't get it. Occasionally I have one of those nasty ear bugs where I get a some jingle or snippet of a song playing a continuous loop in my head, but it's not "music" per se. My inner symphony is silent.
The only exception to this is that I love to sing. I'm a member of the local Chamber Chorale and although I'm not going to be recording albums any time soon, I'm not too bad, either.
But I don't truly understand music. Maybe it's because I'm more of a visual person. I'm more likely to appreciate the depth and complexity of a painting than a piece of music. I would choose reading a book and getting deep into a story over going to a concert. I would buy a movie over a CD.
Some people couldn't live without music, I guess I'm just not one of them!
How about you?
