someone told me long ago, there's a calm before the storm
Music has always been a big part of my life. I get attached to certain genres... or certain artists... and have often wondered what's with the absolutes? Why the repetitiveness until I can listen no longer? I realized today, the why. You know how music adds an emotional element that wouldn't otherwise be there in movies, and then the credits roll with a theme at the end? It's sort of a parallel to life. I gravitate to music that is helping me move through one chapter to the next, like it's the closing of the book before beginning a new adventure. Thinking back to certain times, I can recall the memories/feelings associated with that moment through music. It has the magical ability to capture so many sides to our lives and forever encase them within its lyric and melody. Sometimes these are good things, other times, not so good. But in each, through the music, there could be something to hold on to or let go with.
