Art inspiring art

Yesterday I made the trek to the top of one of my favorite spots in town: Tumamoc Hill. It’s a climb of about a mile and a half, and well, today my lower body is screaming. It’s been over two years since the last time I hiked Tumamoc.

I had my earbuds in for the walk, and I started thinking about how awesome it is that life often syncs to music. I think about this often, actually. Put your library on shuffle, jump on the highway, and watch how well your iPhone can pull up the right driving song for you. (I think you can make almost anything into a driving song, but just go with it!) Put on Maroon 5’s Sugar and then watch how the little old lady–the one who puts you to shame with her fitness–powers up the hill in tempo with Mr. Levine. Do it.

Just a random musing today. I’m not going to say much more on this, but I will leave you with a song by the now late great David Bowie:

I’ve decided I’m going to post one song every week, because music is such a vital part of my writing process. Art inspires art. Make an effort to listen as much as you look around this week, and I think you’ll find that art syncs up with life in beautiful ways. 🙂

Happy Sunday!
