Today I am thankful for the music in my life.  I’m grateful for my parents exposing me to so many different styles of music at an early age – it made me always want to dance and sing despite my natural shyness. I’m grateful that when I was in school, arts and music still played a big part in education so that I was able to be in the chorus.  I love the way a song played at one time can complete a perfect moment…and then later that same song can take me back to that exact place in time, to the person I was with, to a feeling I was having at the time…remind me of a certain taste, or smell. A certain piece of music can evoke any emotion I can imagine and some I couldn’t before I heard it, it can lift a mood, or put me in a sour one, and express things for me that I cannot say myself.
