Do you have a favorite kind of music that feeds your soul?I loved shopping at the mall to discover unique things. While shopping there with a galpal, we visited a nature store. While I looked at all their fun stuff, a fountain bubbled in the background. A catchy guitar song filled the store. My friend and I bobbed our heads, liking the tune. I listened to more songs and decided the CD (Nova Menco) would be perfect for Handsome’s birthday. (He liked music. He would enjoy it—right?)
Handsome listened to the CD; however, I liked it more than he did. I constantly played it in my car. I ended up buying the other CDs this group offered.
When I write, I listen to classical music because the music doesn’t distract me from the writing. Occasionally, the station plays classical and Spanish guitar. I would scribble down the artists’ names (Pepe Romero, David Russell, Jesse Cook, Armik), research their music, and download music I liked. One recommendation led to another and another…and so on.
Well, let’s say my guitar playlist is verrrryyy long. LOL.
By chance, one of the greats would be featured at a nearby concert. Handsome and I attended the show we discovered the guitar became a beautiful thing in their hands. Overjoyed with the music, we decided to go to the society’s concerts. We weren’t disappointed, and again, I bought more guitar music.
For me, the chance visit to a store in the mall produced a small kernel that grew into a big… You get the idea. A love. An obsession. A delight.
Have you ever had an idea, a hobby, or a budding passion take over your life?

I often listen to music while writing. Both assist the soul to open its heart, especially Spanish guitar music. Aah! xx

Hi, Joy! Thank you for visiting with me today. Spanish guitar is unbelievable. Even a novice would appreciate the fast fingering. I can’t wait until the show tomorrow. vb
Oh, I love that story and not yet! I actually like putting on classical music at night which calms my dog enough to sleep, not bark. My mom used to play Mozart on the piano so I sometimes feeel all squishy inside listening to Mozart.

Hi Vicki, at one point I was a music major in college. I love many types of music from classical, folk, and rock. But when I’m writing, I don’t often have music on. Perhaps because I listen too closely to the sounds, it takes me away from my story. 🙂

Hey, Vicki. What a great post. Sorry to be stopping by so late. I was worn out Friday from several really late nights staying with a granddaughter. I almost always have the TV on in the background. l listen to music in the car and love how Sirius shows who’s singing what song. I’m so bad with names. I’m always going. Oh, that’s by XXXX. Fun. I shared. 🙂
