If you've read my blog before, or if you know me in real life, you have probably picked up on the fact that I love music. Lots of different kinds of music strike my fancy, but my favorite, the music that really speaks to me, is Contemporary Christian music. I just love to let the music roll over me and experience the meaning of the lyrics. I feel a kinship with the song writers because I feel as if, at times, I could have written the same lyrics - would have IF I could, that is. I am not good at poetry or music lyrics, my writing flows more in the prose category.

Those who know me well know that I am a bit of a word nerd. I love words and all the nuances of meaning that words hold for us. I often am stuck on a word in a particular sentence or passage in a book, or perhaps I hear a word in a song and the word seems to take root and develop a life of its own. It grows and becomes so overpowering in the sentence that I almost do not see anything expect the one word.

I have been listening to a great deal of old music lately. When I say old music, I am referring to music that was popular during my junior high and high school years (1977-1983) - you know, waaaay back then. Seems like a really long time ago, but yet, when I hear the first chords of Bohemian Rhapsody or the first piano taps of Open Arms, I could swear it was just yesterday, so transported am I by the melodies of my teenage years.
