"One of my earliest memories is of the sound of car wheels singing on the asphalt as we traveled down the highway from Kokomo, Indiana to my grandparents' house in rural Tennessee. Because I was so young, there are no words connected with this memory, only the varying pitches of the sounds, the humming of my voice, and the intense joy generated by the harmony and vibration I felt in every cell of my body.
I have always been innately drawn into sound, and more specifically, into blending my voice with whatever I hear to create a “feeling-sense” of oneness. I find it hard to resist the urge to sing along with the washing machine, the hair dryer, a weedeater, a bird, or the sound of wind in the trees. What I am experiencing more deeply every day is that everything is singing. Even seemingly lifeless objects are humming at a molecular level. You could say that all of life is music and that everyone and everything is continuously playing an integral part in this great symphony.” ~~ Sylvia Hutton
