It's one think to play an instrument(s), it's another to think like a musician. I have played a few different instruments in my life, but never really felt like a musician. I was always drawn toward the sciences, with a more logical mind. In my mid 40, I started to learn to play the guitar. The at 52, I started to play the drums, too. I still didn't feel much like a musician, but I was knew that I was engaging my creative, and that could only be good for me. To fast forward to why I started this thread, I had a unique (for me) experience this morning. I am spending a few days visiting my son in Denver, and I am staying in his apartment. In my room is a fan. This morning I awoke to hearing something in the room. I could barely make it out at first, but the more I listened, the more I realized it was a song with rhythm and melody. I thought it might be coming from another tenant, but then I realized that I was hearing music in the fan. I didn't think much about it through the day (this was ziplining day, and dinner at my son's fire station), but as I got ready for bed and heard the fan again, I remembered hearing the music. That's when it dawned on me that all this time that I have been playing music, my creative side has been natured, and for the first time I heard music in something other than the instrument was I was playing. I feel like an inner musician is awakening. I just had to say something, and then find out about when you realized you had an inner musician.
