In these times when the world is a mess, when I’m hardly able to write, when I can’t make daily trips to the ocean to get my world back in order and I’m not even painting much, the one thing I can still depend on is music.
Whether I need peace, need simple pleasure, need to wallow in self-pity, or need to boot my butt out of the chair and away from the computer, I can depend on music to do the job for me.
And I’m forever grateful to a wide range of artists–people, simple humans I have never met–who somehow manage to touch my soul.
Among a very long list of favorites are The Pentatonix, Il Divo, Streisand, Adele, Jennifer Nettles, Lady Gaga, Pink, Carole King, Bee Gees, Roberta Flack, Johnny Reid and many more.
Some of my favorite songs are: Hallelujah, Imagine, Believe, Stay, Hello, Shallow, Bohemian Rhapsody, Mary Did You Know, Stairway to Heaven, White Rabbit, Simply The Best, You’ve Got A Friend, I Can See Clearly Now, Say Something, We Are The World… I could go on and on
How about you? Is music something you use to change your mood, get you through hard times, or stimulate your creativity?
