People often say that if you were ever a fly on the wall of their car, you would think they were crazy. I think that this is true of most of us! I would take it further to say that if you were ever a fly on the wall of my brain, you would say the same thing.
SO...I was driving home from school the other day, and as I was going down Western, I turned to the left to see all these wonderful rays of the sun filtering through the clouds, and down to the ground. It was really such a phenomenal sight that I immediately thought of a song. The song ran through my head, and it matched the vision, and it was just kind of like one of those perfect moments that sticks with you. Nothing significant happened, and yet...it did.
And then, left field comes into play.
The thought ran across my brain that I wondered if cave men made music, or sang. And if so, what kind of music might that be? Did they have instruments? From there, my brain streaks over to Phineas & Ferb, and the cave man song, Zubada (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=67Rpm6w6viM). I love this song! I want it for a ring tone!
Back to the original question about cavemen, and did they sing? Which leads to why do we sing? Why do we make music? Why did the song that jumped into my brain make the visual display of sunlight more relevant, somehow? How can I make Zubada my ring tone?
A moment in time, where the brain goes wherever it wants to. What happens in your car on the way home?
