Emotion of Music

By Paige Flack

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

    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!
