His Story Could Be Sung

I have found that music, more than any other artistic expression, gives the artist the most immediate gratification.

I have found that working on writing has mostly been cerebral, gratification from peers has been limited at this stage, and the entire process has been isolating.  It is nice to be educated for this sort of thing.  Writing a book can be a noble task, I'm sure.  However, a person has to read all of the writer's work in order to come to a conclusion about it.  

A song, on the other hand, can be heard in a matter of minutes, and a great amount of expression can be put into that song.  

The past few years of genealogical research on my part have begun to reveal something about myself that I subconsciously suspected, but never fully realized.  That is, I apparently am made to express myself through music.  I have the ability to compose.  

But at this stage of my life, I have nothing but bookish knowledge.  I did not set out to be a musician as a young man.  And my ability to play an instrument is laughable.  

However, I'm learning.  And I'm learning how to write music.  

Therefore, I have begun to ponder the feasibility of expressing the story of Nobious and his world through musical means, as well as the novels I'm writing.  I do believe I would enjoy this story-telling task much more if I attempted this.
