I get so emotional baby

Music has the power to take us outside of ourselves. Engaging ears, infusing bodies, flooding minds and filling hearts. Losing yourself in sound allows for a momentary lowering of guard, a temporary freeze on casual cynicism and the eclipse of thought with feeling. 

That’s something that should always be celebrated, that break from the self-created noise in our heads – the doubts, the anxieties, the fears. It may be fleeting but it serves as a resonant reminder to make room in our lives for more than just the attainment of goals. Life is in the little things too. A dance, a song, a shared experience of sound. All add texture, colour and shape to the context in which we relate to one another.

Hallelujah for music sweet music.
