Music is the universal language of mankind.
-Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Outre-Mer
Music is the beauty in life that many don’t see. It is everywhere you look. You just need to take a moment and pause. Let the world slow down and hear the music in everything you do. Music is the epitome of life. It reverberates through life; it is the essence of life. It lives within your soul, deep inside you.
Listening silently you can hear the music in your heartbeat and every breath you take. If that isn’t enough listen harder to the wind outside or the rainfall hitting the roof above your head. Do you hear it now? How about listening to the silence, the rustle of the leaves in the trees or the sounds of crickets on a cool summer’s eve.
Every key I hit in rapid succession as I type – it’s music to my ears. The music of my life. The music of my soul. Can you hear the music around you? Let thee music take over. Hear it where you think it wouldn’t be possible.
The pleasure we obtain from music comes from counting, but counting unconsciously. Music is nothing but unconscious arithmetic.
-Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz
Gottfried explained so much in two simple sentences. Music is based off of rhythm and beats and when broken down it is just numbers all pieced together to make something beautiful.
Each of these are done within a piece of music and with out them the song would be incomplete. You life is your song. Write it. Remember it and live it.
