So Ryan and I sat down to do our first “official” blog post since starting the blog. I gave him a choice of several topics to talk about like our upcoming move to Texas, what the letter board means to him, his favorite sport or t.v. show, etc. He did not want to talk about any of those topics. Well I a bit flippantly said that we could talk about why you had so much trouble falling asleep last night…he immediately responded with YES.
So here is the conversation that followed:
Me: So you had a lot of difficulty falling asleep last night, even with your sleepy medicine and melatonin. Why is that?
Ryan: NOT VERY TIRED. SO FUN TO STAY UP LATE.
Me: What are you doing in your room that is so fun? Are you stimming?
Ryan: YES. MY THOUGHTS KEEP ME UP AT NIGHT.
Me: What kind of thoughts?
Ryan: SO I THINK ABOUT MY MUSIC IN MY HEAD.
Me: What is the style of the music?
Ryan: STYLE IS SOMEWHAT DIFFERENT THAN NEW MUSIC.
Me: Does it have lyrics?
Me: Are you interested in sharing the lyrics on the blog?
I AM IN MY HEAD.
SO WONDERFUL YOU ARE, YOU ARE TO ME.
NO ONE IS MY CHEERLEADER
NO ONE MAKES ME FEEL SO LOVED
YOU ARE MY EVERYTHING.
Me: That is absolutely beautiful. It writes like a poem. I wish that I knew how the music goes along with it. How are we going to get the notes out of your head?
Ryan: YOU ARE GOING TO TEACH ME TO WRITE MUSIC.
Me: Is there anything else that you want to say for your blog?
Ryan: YES. I AM HAPPY TO BE BLOGGING. YOU INSPIRE ME TO NOT SETTLE FOR AUTISTIC SILENCE.
So that is how our first writing experience went. I am not musical at all and Ryan knows this. We have talked about music before and he has expressed that he wants a lesson on how to write music. This is a bit stressful to me as I have dubbed myself as “Tone Deaf Steph” so this will be a challenge. However, if anyone is up for that challenge, I know that I am because I would do anything for Ryan.
If any of you have any suggestions for a crash course in writing music, I am all ears (get it?)!
