Perhaps the best is that lately, I find myself simply sitting with my eyes closed, letting the music flow, conjuring new images and emotions. It relaxes me, takes my imagination to new places, and allows me to be a little more creative. There are also times it brings up memories of people from a forgotten or not so forgotten past, and I'm transported to a time that can't be recaptured, but can always be remembered. The ultimate though, is when I simply drift off, unaware I'm doing so until the music ends and I awaken to silence.
If you don't pay attention to the music in movies or even some television shows, I encourage you to listen. And if you really enjoy what you hear, take steps to own some of it. Let a little instrumental loveliness flow into your life and be the soundtrack for some of your day-to-day activities. Appreciate what the composers and musicians have created.
Now if you'll excuse me, I have to turn off the soundtrack to Pirates of the Caribbean and play a little music from Frost/Nixon.
