So much of humanity is described by what we produce. Literature, music and film are the three forms of art I most frequently utilize in my life.
There is little that moves one quite like the spaces between a song, like words on a page, like moving images on a screen. They describe our lives, push us to reflect on things said and unsaid, and encourage us to be better people.
It may seem simple and silly, but so much of humanity and what it means to be a person in the world is defined by words, by sounds.
I am thankful that years ago, I was given the gift of being able to read, that I was taught to appreciate music for all of its quality and production, and that I can view film so easily and in so many ways.
