    When I get very angry, sad or anxious....I find that the right music can manage to calm me down and bring me back to center.  I seem to suffer from a mental clog when I get affected enough by a situation.  If I sit and listen to music (that is if I can find a chance to...

    Music has a way of reaching into our soul

    and saying what we can't. Either because we can't find the right words, or it just says things better than we ever could. When I'm upset the music speaks to me... Let's me know I'm not alone.

    When i'm upset, when i'm happy,

    when i'm tired, when i'm awake. There is a style of music and song for every situation. The world would be a boring place without music
