“That’s what I love about music. Even the most banal scenes are suddenly invested with so much meaning, you know? All these banalities, they suddenly turn into these beautiful, effervescent pearls.“
I love this quote, which comes from one of my favorite movies Begin Again. Music is so powerful. A single song can either change or reinforce our current mood. One phrase can trigger a distant memory to be so crystal clear. My favorite thing about music? It really does affect how we see the world around us. Suddenly the people passing by, trees swaying in the wind, city lights, and night sky stars are all in sync to the song in our heads. These rare and special moments in time can easily be missed, but can also just as easily be grasped and even cherished.
Our world may not be ideal, but it can be beautiful. And sometimes, music is what helps us to see the simple beauties among the imperfections. So sit back, wander the streets, lay in the grass, and let that song help you tune in to the world around you.
