What is sound?
Vibrations resonating through airwaves received in the eardrum?
Encoded harmonic messages communicating rhythmic information?
I remember my first experience of going to an art museum. Looking at the paintings gave me such a wondrous feeling. I felt a sense of awe at how an object or image could stir strong imagination in me. It was a feeling of warmth and closeness.
I almost felt embarrassed to be in public, surrounded by other people looking at the same art I was. Secretly, I wanted to take all the artwork and sneak away somewhere alone. I wanted to hide away and cherish the tenderness of it. It was as if God descended into my being, into my heart, and touched a very vulnerable part of me. It was a transcendent moment.
