100 Word Wednesday: Week 132 – The Lone Saxophonist


When a lone saxophonist plays in a forest who is listening?

If he hits a wrong note, does anyone care?

I wondered these things as I looked at this image. Will the trees react? The birds fly off?

To the forest, it must be strange to have such an odd sound reverberating through the leafy landscape.

The animals would consider it an intrusion; roll their eyes, thinking, “What is this terrible noise?”

I wonder if the lone player thinks of these things or is he taken in by the sheer majesty of playing and connecting in such a hallowed setting.

    He is probably enjoying his own music to wonder about how it’s being received.

  2. It makes you think how wildlife would react to music doesn’t it? Nature has its own melodies, but somehow a saxophone isn’t exactly like the wind in the trees! Nice thought process Michael.

    Wildlife has been listening to music since Day Dot. Only the instruments, melodies and discord changes.

    If he plays the saxophone anything like I did when I was a teenager, his neighbours probably asked him to go play in the forest 😀
