Once upon a time, a little girl with wild blonde hair looked over the bluffs on the coast of Cook Inlet
The sun was setting and below the sweet hum of the blowing wind, a gentle chorus of birds sang a sweet song
Nature was presenting its symphony with absolute perfect timing and poise
How beautiful it was
That was one of the many times the little girl would be captivated and left in awe of the unfathomable wonders of music
Every song had a story and a deep meaning behind it
Even the earth, singing praises to our Creator
Music is its own language
It speaks for us when words are unattainable
Music is powerful great work.
The image you evoke in so few words is impressive, and really powerful. You pain a really clear picture of the beauty of nature. Using a little girl as the focus of the piece really captures how ingrained the awe of music is for people. I can’t agree more that music often says things our language can’t. It’s a really evocative way to talk about music, I really enjoyed it!
