What journeys have books taken you on? Movies? Music?

Books, movies, and music can transport you into another dimension or realm. It also connects people from all over the world, from different cultures and backgrounds. When you heard the word the journey what you think about? Well, I know personally when I heard the word journey I think of some sort of trip. It can be emotional, physical or mental. I believe that movies, books, and music cam take us on journeys that we would not be able to take normally.

When I choose to read leisurely and for my own entertainment, I tend to read books that are fiction. My favorite fiction genre’s are Mystery & Thriller, and Sci-fi & Fantasy. While reading you are able to dive into the characters’s head and life. As I read I usually embody the character in the book as I read. So while reading I am on the journey of the main character or characters.

All of my favorite movies are movies that contain dancing. That’s because I can connect with actors and actresses, plus dance is something I am strongly passionate about. One of my fave movies is “Step Up 2: the streets”, it ties together dancers from different communities, races, socioeconomics and majors.

My favorite journey would have to be music without any doubt. As a dancer and using to music to express myself I am always on a new journey. The best thing about music is the fact that there so many songs out there that you could get lost in the music. I listen to so many genres and artists that no journey is ever the same. When I make choreography for dance I play whatever song I am dancing to over and over again until I am one with the song. It’s as if I am the tree and the music allows me to branch out into new territories.

    What are some of your favorite books? You said you embody the character in the books you read. What connects you to them? Do they all share something in common that attaches you? There are multiple “Step Up” movies. What about the second one makes it stand out. What about music allows you to get lost? Is each journey related to the music genre? I use music to go through mental journeys as well. Is it the music or the lyrics that evoke you?
