thank you for your reply ,i dont think i have other issues that makes me not like music ,i just find it quite annoying,

i dont like the way a song can make your emotions change, ie sad song thinking of lost loved ones ect, 

i appreciate a lot of people love music ,i just dont get it, but hey thats me ,im sure theres lots of things i like that others dont ,

maybe it was because i was brought up in an very striked orphanage and i never heard any music till i ran away at 16, but who knows ,x

Hello leah.

I too don't have any of the music machines that most people seem to have nowadays. It's not that I dislike 'all' music - it's more that I like to choose that music which helps me relax and enjoy life. It's much the same with looking at pictures or engaging in other activities. I like to do what I like to do and that sometimes sets me apart from the majority.

My dughter and her family don't have television! In this day and age people simply do not understand how she and the family can live without it. Personally I can fully understand this point of view as watching modern TV seems to be the psycholgical equivalent of choosing to take a less than pleasant walk through a municiple rubbish dump.

You say that music makes your emotions change  - for me that it the very point of music, poetry, art etc.  some of this stuff can help change your emotions for the better. However, many of the composers of modern music  and verse do have unresolved 'issues' that they express through music, art etc.  Perhaps you are sensitive to their emotions as portrayed through their music.  I feel sure that if you become more discerning about what music you listen to you may well get something more positive from it. after all, if it can change your emotions one way it may well have the power to change them another more positive way. 

Best wishes  Bill

It’s difficult for me to imagine life without music.  I studied classical piano from an early age like so many other kids in my neighborhood in the forties and fifties.  Radios played in every house I ever visited and live music seemed to be everywhere.  I thought we all liked  music and some of us loved it but were ashamed to admit we listened to the classics.  A high C by Pavarotti, a thunderous Mahler symphony or just about any Mozart creation performed properly allows me to envision, even feel, the threshold to heaven.  That’s not to minimize the glorious experiences from Streisand, Groban, Humperdinck and many, many more great artists.  Though not critical, I am truly sorry for anyone who has missed the pleasures of music.  Hey, it’s not too late. Try some.  You might be surprised.  

Respectfully,

Mike

Hey Leah, I would not judge you for your artistic or religious preferences.  I’m not authorized to judge you or anyone else for what you or they might do.  Maybe I have opinions and they may differ from yours but they’re just opinions and, if they come from just feeling rather than education and experience, they’re probably not valid.  

A lot of today’s music fits your description; the screeching, drums banging, etc.  The thought of bag pipes, pan pipes, drums, violin and flute together is as funny or scary as it gets.  I would still prefer that to most rap.  

My reference to the heavenly aspect of some music was probably a poor choice since there might not even be a heaven.  People who are adamant about that might tell me to go to hell.

I think my main intention is for all people to enjoy all the things they can so long as they don’t impose or offend others.  

I hope I get to see your art work and I hope I enjoy it.  I would play Paderewski’s Minuet for you but I know you would hate it.

Respectfully, 

Mike

I can easily understand what you say Leah.  I once heard that the word for "music" in one of the ancient languages (maybe Sanskrit?) literally meant "attack on silence", and some great teachers over the ages have talked about "the power of silence".  I'm surprised by the number of people I know who avoid silence by constantly having the TV or some other source of sound or music playing in the background. Although some music is sometimes delightful, I find much music is a pollution of the beauty of silence. It's interesting that sometimes the most powerful part of a song is the moment of silence in it that's unexpected.

As for your dolls, they are intriguing and make me wonder what they feel like. What materials are they made of?
