As I sit here pondering what to write on my blog, I’m struck with a thought: What if our lives had a soundtrack? What songs would we find on it? Where on earth did this idea come from?
I’m sure it has nothing to do with Iron Man 2 playing in the background. 🙂 Seriously though, as I listen to the music rev up for the intense scenes, and mellow out for the quiet ones, I can’t help but wonder what our lives would be like if music automatically played based on what’s going on at any given moment.
Something lively while playing with giggling children. Soft, melodic tunes during romantic times with our husbands. That piece from Mission Impossible would surely play while sneaking into a child’s room to retrieve something while they sleep.
Ever notice how your heart races when the music intensifies. It starts slow and quiet building in speed and volume until you’re on the edge of your seat, and then boom, it falls away to nothing, and your heartbeat heads back to normal.
I wonder, if we had that forewarning, would we turn away from the wrong choices? Would we avoid the danger around the corner? Would we redefine the moment, and change the music to something more pleasant?
Maybe. Sometimes. I hope my soundtrack reflects more fun, lively music blended with softer, romantic tunes. A large variety, but with a sparse sampling of the ominous music thank you.
