M is for Music

I imagine there will be a lot of "music" postings for today's A to Z challenge letter.  And I LOVE that! It just shows how important and amazing and universal the power of music is.  As a matter of fact, just recently, a Facebook friend posted a beautiful video detailing how music is being used in nursing homes to help residents engage and respond. Here it is

It brought tears to my eyes because it proves to me the power of music.  I love music for many reasons and I love so many different types of music. I enjoy music that makes me want to get up and dance, I enjoy instrumental music that is so beautiful it makes my heart ache and brings tears to my eyes.  Music makes my work day go faster and when I'm feeling down I can listen to some of my favorite songs and music and feel better almost instantly.  One of the most amazing things technology has done is allow us to take vast quantities of music with us wherever we go in something that takes so very little space. We can have our entire music libraries with us if we so choose! And to be without music is to have a very unsatisfying day in my opinion.

“After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music.” 
― Aldous Huxley


  1. I've been to a few blogs and none yet on music. (Saturday seems to be a really slow day for bloggers.)

    Music is a large part of my life. I never realized how much I enjoyed having it in the background until the radio broke in my car.

  2. I hear ya. Music is sometimes all you need to turn a rotten day into a good one.

  3. Lately I've been hearing a lot about the power of music. My choir just ended (was at the university) and we'll be moving to a different county before it starts up again. I really hope I can find a place to sing in a land where we don't speak the main language.

    I'm also highlighting an ablum for each letter this month! It's a fairly eclectic list... :)

    Happy A to Z'ing!
