Musical words

"There was a steaming mist in all the hollows, and it had roamed in its forlornness up the hill, like an evil spirit, seeking rest and finding none. A clammy and intensely cold mist, it made its slow way through the air in ripples that visibly followed and overspread one another, as the waves of an unwholesome sea might do. It was dense enough to shut out everything from the light of the coach-lamps but these its own workings, and a few yards of road; and the reek of the laboring horses steamed into it, as if they had made it all."

Charles Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities

Mmmmmm. I love good words like I love a warm bowl of simmering soup on a cold day or fresh fruit on a hot one.
There are moments in music, any kind of music, when the notes and sound reach directly into your heart...your soul is touched. It was just right. It was truth, in music, and you felt it. A good author masters the truth of words just as a good composer understands the truth of sounds, all strung together to create a new reality for your senses to dive into. I loved this paragraph. I felt like I was there.


Whoa. Dude. That was like. ..tooootally. deep.

Your awesome.

My friend and I were just discussing great words and how we wished we were not so tired so that we could think of good words to say.

Your awesome because I know your tired too, but can still think of good smart things to say.

Peace Out,
