– Do you have a favorite quote that you return to again and again? What is it, and why does it move you?
Without music, life would be a mistake.
– Friedrich Nietzsche
I’ve been asked about my favorite quotes quite often. I always go between Dziga Vertov and Nietzsche. This quote in particular moves me because music is my life. I have a bit of anxiety and aside from the warm cuddles of a pet, music has always been there. The moment I play a soundtrack, I disappear from the troublesome moment I may be in and travel to fantastical places.
I grew up with music and never went a day without listening to it. Many bands hold a very special place in my heart because of the relationships I have around them.
Then when it comes to writing, I put together playlists that help shape the soundtrack of the story I’m trying to tell.
Music is magical.
Without it, life would truly be empty.
