The Beat Goes On

BY PAMELA JO BOWMAN, MESA, ARIZONA — It is not news that I love music. I often spend hours listening to new artists as I search for the perfect song or songs when editing. We are at the point of placing music into our doc and feature. It is amazing and magical to watch a flat scene come to life with the “sound of music.”

Jeniece sends me more current trends. Sometimes I listen and recognize right away that it doesn’t fit me. Today she sent me two new songs from two different artists. One sounds familiar to me, kind of like an early James Taylor. Both have lyrics that touched me.

Thanks Jeniece for sharing.

Music can say things we would like to say or hear what we want to believe. Sometimes we have to listen to the beat without to recognize what motivates us to keep beating within. And sometimes it’s just fun to discover a new song before anyone else has had the experience. I passed these on to Wistie. She hasn’t told me what she felt yet. It is just a matter of time. You can’t keep the beat to yourself. It will keep pounding away until you give it away.

Beat, beat, beat, beat.
