Words & Music by Mike Kavanaugh
In Judeo-Christian tradition it is believed that God created the universe as we know it (including human emotions) by speaking words. "And God said...and it was so." In the same tradition it is often believed that human beings, being created in God's image, have the ability to create with our words. I am a firm believer here.
For me, the creative process starts somewhere deeper than the education of man. It is spiritual. Something reaching from somewhere beyond the places my mind has been.
Where is music in this? Much of the musical beauty of written word is perhaps beyond our hearing. Sometimes music and words collide. I split my writings into music and poetry. Where they have collided, I place them in both. I hope you enjoy:
