On Music (Excerpt written by Will)
In an excerpt from a letter to Angie, Will writes about the evolution of his love for music.
I used to love playing sports. I understood the games with a second nature. There were times that everything moved in slow motion. Miles Davis played in my head. Blue in Green looping over and over as the game bounced along. I saw all the angles… Music became my second wind, and I began to love the way it made me feel…as I created vs. just listening. It became my family because I grew with it. It seemed to love me. Music was patient with me and began to listen to my ideas as much as I listened to its melodies. Paul and Stevie and Michael whispered in my ears. They taught me how to be myself in the world. Lauryn became my big sister and I hung onto her every word.

I love this excerpt about Will’s love for music and its place in his life. I have a 10 year old son, Tyler who plays both piano and now cello and who I think is a talented writer; I will share this excerpt with him. He will appreciate the interplay of sports and music in this writing. Like Will, Tyler is learning how to be himself in the world and music plays a huge role in his life!
