Time has marched on & I’m surprised and perplexed to find that for some in my different circles, music was perhaps simply a passing fancy. A now past era of their lives.
And I’m not talking about just performing either - Listening to live music, for some listening to recorded music, playing instruments, singing, writing...
I'd understand if they were new parents. I think if I’d been a parent, I’d have put many things away or perhaps mostly written endless love songs to my children.
Otherwise, I’m perplexed.
Did they run out of feeling certain things? Or run through feeling them? Or run out of wanting to feel them?
So I did the logical thing this morning.
I googled “why do some stop playing music”.
And what came back only had headings like:
How to Time Music to Stop Playing on Your iPhone « iOS ...
How to stop the Music app from auto-playing in your car ...
I love Siri but I’m pretty sure if I’d asked her, the answers would have been quite similar.
I guess I expected to be answered with, "their souls died" or something.
Oh... I now realize, in my abreviated thinking, I didn't put in the word 'people', "why do some people stop playing music?"
Way, different answers. Wheh!!
The world is spinning again.
Answers with headings including:
Still no headings with something about their SOULS dieing though.
I couldn't create music for a while. I thought I'd die. I really did.
Thanks God for giving it back. Love, Mary :-)
