I used to "roleplay" scenes from my stories while listening to music...had to do it in the dark as there were motions involved and I just felt so self-conscious, even though I was alone. Sometimes certain music, like the quote says, would help trigger a "fantasy"--I'd create a scene set to the music. Sometimes more than one, depending on which story I was most interested in at the time.

I don't do that anymore, but when I listen to music I walk around and do the roleplaying completely in my head now. I feel a LITTLE less weird, seeing the Wikipedia quote.

If I don't reply to you, it's NOTHING PERSONAL. It's my ANXIETY.
