Wow, I think this is two posts in one day. I was chatting with Sandy at church tonight and discussing the time old subject of kids not noticing details in life. I know I never used to see details either when I was a kid so in this chat I was trying to remember when I figured out details. I thought it was when I worked a summer job and was responsible for other kids but......that wasn't it! It was through playing music, especially in the symphony that I started paying attention to detail. I will have to be sure to mention that to Sandy. That was an aha moment (not sure that is how you spell aha). I am not sure music has that effect on everyone but it did on me. Perhaps it helps us to figure out how to focus on the details we need to or want to in life. Particular musicians I know aren't necessarily tuned into some details that may seem important to some people but they are tuned into the details that are most important to them. Interesting......
So.....perhaps my kids will remember things like turning out lights, reading directions, turning on the washing machine, hearing the dog barking to get in, etc. if they practice more! Here's hoping that is true.
