I’m a writer (yep, and you thought I was just a musician?). Sometimes I will search for pieces of music to list to while I write because that particular song conveys the exact feelings I’m trying to write. Other times I will play the music which inspire my writing. I have a whole “playlist” of songs for harp which were key to writing certain scenes in my most recent novel.
Music is powerful. I believe it is one of the gifts God gave us to express our feelings when words fail. Perhaps author Victor Hugo (Les Miserables) said it best:
“Music expresses that which cannot be put into words and that which cannot remain silent.”
When has music conveyed your feelings? Was it an occasion of sorrow or joy?
