This month Karen Eastlund will be blogging about "Facing the Music.
Here are my thoughts on music. As a tone deaf, country listen, musical loving old lady, my thoughts lean toward unconventional music. Like a child's laughter... a summer night with crickets, bullfrogs and katydids singing...the soft whisper of "I love" from my husband of 49 years.
Music is partly hearing but it's also feeling. Irene can confirm that music makes me dance but it doesn't touch my soul like it does for so many other people. I can take it or leave it. But nature's music fills me with peace and happiness. It makes me realize I'm just a tiny particle in the universe. Human music makes me feel love and my soul craves this music. I'm a simple person with simple needs... I don't look to material things to be happy... no I just need my family, friends and my animals to be completely happy.
May you enjoy my kind of music all your life.
