Obsession.

"Music is what feelings sound like." 

Remember this post?  I went to said concert I've been so excited for on Friday night and it was fantastic. I'm obsessed with the local music here in Provo. Really. I can't get enough of it. New favorite thing. I've seen Benton Paul play five times now. Five.

I'm not sure if my writing skills are adequate enough to accurately describe this thought process I often have: I think it's so interesting how someone, by taking words and extending them with their vocal chords (singing) while plucking some strings or pounding on some percussion instrument, can make their audience feel something and maybe understand. It sounds weird, but that's the best way I can describe it. While music varies regionally, I think the appreciation for it is a human trait and I love that. Music is an extension of our humanity. 

Here are some clips from the concert. This is John AllredJenn Blosil, and Benton Paul
