Music & Dance
“I think music in itself is healing. It’s an explosive expression of humanity. It’s something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we’re from, everyone loves music.” – Billy Joel
- Comfort – There are times that we all need comfort in life. For me, I turn to Neil Diamond. His music always brings me back to a time when I needed some comfort from an unknown world. I would turn on Neil and listen to his poetic words and would ease my mind and encourage me to continue on.
- Creativity – When I get a creative block, one of the things I do is to crank up some movie soundtrack music. Whether it be the sounds of Danny Elfman or Hans Zimmer, something inside my brain unlocks and inspires me for the project I am working on.
- Connectivity – Do you find yourself in need of connecting with your kids? I cannot express in this one post the amazing amount of connectivity music has brought into my life with my son. Everything from listening to music to making up our own silly songs has opened up great expression and communication between us.
“Those who dance are considered insane by those who cannot hear the music.”- George Carlin
Imagine being trapped in a block of solid ice, sitting there, frozen, unable to move. There is nothing better than changing your mood from one of lethargy or boredom than getting up and shaking your booty. The mere act of getting up on your feet and “gettin’ jiggy wit it” gets the blood flowing and allows your inner freedom to come out.
