Plato once said “Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.” We live our lives to music. I myself have a list of songs that I refer to as the soundtrack of my life. The list is made up of songs from a wide range of genres and they are songs that I associate with a specific moment in time, either because the lyrics fit the mood or because that is the song that was playing at the time. Many couples have a ‘song’, something that was played at their wedding or some other event of special significance or just signifies their relationship in some way, for my husband and I it’s ‘Long Way Home’ by Tom Waits. For many music is a way to tell their story.
Since this weeks challenge was about I music I decided to make the focus of my picture the person in my life that actually makes music, my husband. In world he is known by Mulder Watts and Jon Larson, and if you are familiar with the SL music scene you may have seen him perform and if you haven’t heard then you should and I’m not just saying that because I’m married to him! One of the things that I love about his music is that in addition to sounding awesome, his songs tell fantastic stories and yes some of his songs are on my life soundtrack list!
