When I was in college I got the CD version of the Beatles’ “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” and was a little surprised each time I played the first song and it didn’t skip after “It was twenty years ago today, Sgt. Pepper taught us how to play . . . ” I had listened to my parents’ record album so many times, the skip felt like part of the song.
Day 4 of telling your stories: music.
This one may be a hard topic to narrow down for some of you. It was hard for me, so I started with one of my first memories of music. I could have talked about the song playing the first time a boy asked me to dance. Or the songs we sang in my high school choir. Or the hymn I can’t sing without tears in my eyes. Or the U2 concerts I’ve been to. Or the theme song to my favorite TV show. Or the song I played to my growing belly when pregnant with our first son. Or the song my husband loves to sing even though he always gets the lyrics wrong.
The good news is you can’t go wrong when telling your stories. Start writing and see where it takes you.
