Do You Play?
June 12, 2019 (134 words)
Can you be considered a musician without actually being able to play an instrument? Random sounds and bits of conversation have always elicited a musical response from me.
I can’t help but hear various downbeats in my head, which suggest certain tunes, and before long I find myself almost involuntarily singing the chorus to an eclectic range of songs and hymns, right out loud.
Be advised, this is prone to happen at any time. In fact it’s become so commonplace over the years that now I just take it for granted.
A pleasant phenomenon, it creates an agreeable presence that turns all my chores into lyrics, rhythm out of all my reasons. The origin of ceremony.
Does that count?
