Every time I hear good new music I think about how much my late mom used to love listening. I sometimes end up thinking "mom would have loved this tune" when a track on the radio sounds like it would have been right up her alley. I don't really have anyone left in my family besides myself who's so into music as a listener. Actual mindful listening. For many of them it's background noise, something to have burbling away in the background while doing something else, something to be talked over, an ambience. More people should sit down and actually pay attention to music without distractions. It's not that difficult. Even if it means sitting up late after the kids/spouse/SO have gone to bed. So worth it.
