I love to read novels that take me away to other places and let me see and feel through the lives of others. And I love music, you will often hear me whistling or humming to myself, maybe Beethoven's Ode to Joy or a folk type song or something from a musical. Last year I played in a handbell choir and sang in a choir and a chorale group. Loved it!
