Language and Music.

We go through our lives

And hear so many languages,

Spoken in different ways,

With different meanings,

So that understanding them

Can be so hard.

But among all those languages

There is one that all understand,

And can, and will, bring us together,

The language of music.

    During my life as atradesman working in peoples homes i had the misfortune to come across one lady who told me in no uncertain terms that she did not like music. To say she was quite a noteable character would be an understatement for i believe there were very few things she actually did like. I haven't found anyone yet who liked her. (No this isn't a mother-in-law joke).

      There are some very strange people around and I have met a few of them in my life but all we can do is move on in our own lives.

        The voice is a wonderful instrument - it matters not what the language is - enjoy it for the beauty of the sounds it makes. Unless it's Orchis of course (sorry Orchi).

        • Goldfinch60

          It certainly is Michael.

          If anyone can write on the language of music it has to be you dear Andy - - this power you capture in your gem of a write. Thank you for sharing the magic which joins the whole world together.

                Hi Andy,

                Ill agree with you on that one.

                Everyone of us has a favourite Bob Marley, David Bowie, Frank Sinatra or Ella Fitzgerald song that we like.

                Great write.

                Keep writing ✍ and safe during these challenging times.
