For most of my life I have always had any sort of music device on me. Whether it was a tiny Barbie boom box, over-sized headphones, a real boom box, sitting in front of the stereo playing vinyls with my dad, tape player, Walkman, iPod, car stereo, computer..you name it. I have to have my music. I even played the alto, bass and tenor saxophone in school. Until recently I forgot about my love of music. Where did my music go?Really, I don’t know where the music went. I just forgot about it. I don’t know if I just was focused on other parts of my life or what, but this weekend I found the music again. After one stressful week; I needed it.
Sitting in my chair listening to new artists and new songs that have recently been released and just letting it flow into me. There is nothing like letting that fast to slow and slow to fast beat move into you; the release of tension and outside noise. The melody and notes taking you away. And then listening to the words of a well thought out song. Making you feel like someone out there in the world just gets you. There is nothing like it. The ultimate stress reliever. The ultimate life giver. The ultimate.
