Daily Post: Cue the Violins
If your life were a movie, what would its soundtrack be like? What songs, instrumental pieces, and other sound effects would be featured on the official soundtrack album?
Any soundtrack for my life would be eclectic; just like my music collection. 12th century chant, reggie, indie, classical, new age, and more, but not much if any heavy metal. Each scene would have it’s own theme and music. For example, playing with charlie would have that inspiring science fiction movie music where the scientists are suddenly learning about life. And in the movie, we would see me playing Charlie. Charlie is learning how to move a lazy susan. You know, that wooden circle where you put spices and food in the center of the table and spin it around. Well Charlie was amazed when I spun it around. He put his paw on it and the wood moved. He pushed the edge, and the wood spun. I spun it. He spun it. After a few times, he had learned. Well I wonder what he could learn to do with hands instead of paws, fingers instead of claws, opposable thumbs to pick up and hold things. What could the cat do? Fascinating question to think about. Any ideas? Would love to hear what you think.
This scene would be followed by some relaxing New Age music, the kind where life is seen through rose tinted glasses. We are walking outside. Enya or Secret Garden or Omnia would be playing while we look at the sky, the trees, and water from rain in the parking lot. All is wonderful for the moment. Very lovely and actually true.
then we cue the violins for a harsh jarring rock and roll sound as Bob and I march off into the car, ready to begin another day of work.
