Music can play all day and all night. With music, my space is filled, where before it was empty of the sound of your voice. Just before you came in, I was floating. I put that iPod in my ear, and listen to some of the best music. My hands lift into the air, floating on wind, decoding what I hear. There is an ad on BBC where a young boy describes an experience and his voice crescendos as he tried to speak, but now it isnโ€™t the music coming from somewhere else but the strings in his emotion. His own emotion became a harp.
