Can you actually drive – without music?
I think not.
I’m sure you’ve all had the experience of car silence – that uncomfortable experience. Everything seems to be in black and white. But with music? Music – that master of feelings and possibilities and reflection introduces full color and connection to the scenes passing by. Watching someone cross in front of you in silence? Meh. Watching that same person crossing in front of you when you are in the midst of melancholy or yearning or rage at the machine – well you see them as part of the action – as players in your world.
That’s a good thing. Now, it would be better if I didn’t just miss my exit.
