Music, it is such a part of our lives and I have noticed that it is missing from mine. Which I must admit is not something I would ever thought would happen. I can remember as a kid listening to eight track tapes during the summer visiting my grandparents when I was 5. Never learned how to play an instrument (except in college two piano tunes & a lap harp tune to pass my Elementary Ed music class). I have always wanted to learn to play the piano properly, my grandfather had one that he would let me just bang on while I was younger (made a song for him called peanut butter & jelly) but I never played a tune on it once he died when I was 8, just was never the same. KWIM?!

This past year with the boys' home doing their online school I stopped listening to music during the day as it was a big distraction for Spencer. Which is really not a problem; I only want what is best for him and his studies.

Yet today I sit here with the boys away, DH at work and I am actually listening to my music stations from Pandora. (I adore Pandora a great way to listen to your favorite artists and find new ones along the way.)

Anywho, I now realize that I have really missed listening to Coldplay, The Fray, Snowpatrol, Green Day, Muse, Adam Ant, Weezer, Butterfly Boucher, The Cure, and Depeche Mode and on it goes.

I will be finding a way to get more into my life again; it puts an extra spring in my step and gets me moving around. Music really is an expression of who/what we are and with no music I really think that something is missing in our lives.

So, go out and enjoy some of your favorite music and even perhaps find a new artist to enjoy.

Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent.

I love to listen to music when I exercise. It's the only thing that can keep me going.
