One thing I love about music is it is social. Covid-19 that makes it hard right now, but watching “The Social Dilemma,” I thought how the arts (music, writing, crafts) are the original social media.
They are things we do together and share.
They are things that connect us to each other and the real world.
They are things that can often explore and reveal truth.
They are things that ground us.
When we engage, and create something we are left with the thing we created. Something to gift. Something to share and enjoy. A meme, or clever post we make into the internet is lost in the flush and flow of never-ending posts and memes never to be seen again, (unless an algorithm resurfaces it).
