The Challenge of Music
I usually participate in Lori Anderson's Bead Soup Blog Hop but knew because of my surgery it would be a bit of a rush and I never want to rush with someone else's great "soup" they've worked so hard to gather and send. I want to make out of it the best of what my creativeness can give to it. So this year I bypassed Lori's blog hop - sigh.
But, I did find a totally interesting challenge to participate in. It's hosted by Treasures-Found - Erin Prais-Hintz. We're going to take a musical journey via instrumental music only. It seems to me for the most part that even though there are usually vocals in the music I listen to I really don't tend to know many of the words to the songs. Only for purposes of this challenge I'll need to find an instrumental only. My plan is to use my Kindle while I'm in the hospital and find several suitable songs that are "playing my tune". While I am there I can think it through - albeit maybe in a medicinally induced haze.
Okay, that sounds a little glib and I don't mean it to be that way. I really want a piece of music that will whisk my imagination to a far away place. Something that will inspire me. I intend to use all of Erin's hints and work to be in the moment with the music. It will be fun.
Thanks for the opportunity Erin. The blog hop will be on March 1st so I'll have to work fast after I am home from the hospital but I figure it will be the only thing I concentrate on and give it my all. While I'm in the hospital I can figure out the mechanics and creation in my mind's eye and on paper.
As soon as I figure out which music it will be I'll post it here and try and document my way through the process. I'm excited about this.
