My relationship with music is pretty much like Tarzan's relationship with human language. If I stare at all those little bugs on the page long enough I'm sure they will become meaningful.* At this point, however, I remain musically illiterate.
But, like a small child who can not read yet, I love to listen--and I want others to love the stories I love.
*Then I will stumble out of the jungle with several murders and a good command of French under my belt, which I wear only to keep my knife ready at hand. (Modesty, feh!)
