Re: Maybe OT--editing of film


 A big definate YES! When I was in junior high, the band teacher gave a 
presentation to ALL 7th graders. He played a piece by Glinka. I envisioned 
a frolicking chase through a forest. Different sections of the piece made 
scenes in my head of different parts of a forest. Dense trees, a downhiil 
run along a stone path through sparce trees, a splash across a stream, 
etc. I believe you can. Listen to Todd Rungren's Utopia album track "The 
Ikon". If you don't visualize different scenes in your mind you probably 
are being distracted by something.
