idle thoughts

Marith made a comment yesterday about fish not noticing water, with regards to me and how much/what I do. I tend to think if I can do it, it must not be all that impressive, really, and that anybody can do it.

I’ve been thinking about that the last couple days in the context of writing music. No, I haven’t begun writing music. I haven’t got the foggiest idea how, not music nor lyrics. Instead I boggle at how musicians can evoke emotion and tell stories in three minutes with a repeating chorus, and wonder how the hell they do that. I’d *love* to be able to write music. I just wouldn’t even know where to start.

Presumably there are people who feel this way about writing books. It’s an interesting thought.
