RAK 5 - Listening up
Music is pretty important to me. There is music present in all that I do whether it is external or the songs in my head, music is always there. Driving my vehicle is definitely one time where I like my music, and I like specific music for the mood I am in (or want to be in). While I know others including my wife and 'nana' cater to the passengers and let them pick the music for the drive, I typically encourage (force) my passengers to be enlightened by my personal listening choice of the day.
On Saturday I drove the boy (Josh) to the doctor in the city. I ran into a drug store before coming home and while he waited, he plugged his iphone into the car and listened to his music (typically not what I would choose ... like father like son). On my return he scrambled to unplug and put my ipod back on and I stopped and suggested that he could just listen to his music for the drive.
I am pretty sure he was happy to share his System of a down and other choices with me for the drive... and I was happy to hear and check out some stuff I hadn't heard before.
Opening the mind. Sharing the airwaves. And paying attention. That was my RAK for day 5.
