What Will Life Sound Like Without Music

Nothing is more revered than silence and nothing is more celebrated than sound. Although we need both in our lives, yet all the creativity is not in the silence that is just the same anywhere on the globe, but in making sounds and filling the air with a whole range of happy tunes or sad tunes, invigorating or depressing, and just about anything the imagination can reach is playable through music.

Music is all around us; it’s right there in trees, in the songs of birds, through the waves of the sea, and the whisper of the wind. We might all enjoy nature’s tunes, but true music lies in our souls and what we tend to like, react to, create, inspire, and influence the world with. Music is all about what we can give to this world even when we are not composers. When music inspire something in us to do something then music had us give something to the world.
