Not everything is a song, I think.
But to most five year old most of the their life is; everything is so permeated with meaning that what else to do but memorialize it with music?
Sometime along our journey to adulthood we lose that sense of the importance of everyday things; we have a vague notion that they are important, but we dismiss their value in favor of bigger issues, headline-grabbing topics. But what is as soothing as warm soapy water? So hurtful as a minor cruelty of a loved one? As special as an unexpected bit of chocolate?
Don't these things deserve a bit of music?
