“Musicians don’t retire; they stop when there’s no more music in them” . . . Louis Armstrong
It’s all about the music, where would we be without it? The dancers would still dance, would the singers still sing? Music is the culmination and the essential component that conveys the natural rhythm of the soul. It’s the emotional wave generated from deep within that life rides on. Music can be enjoyed anywhere any time, on the job site my cousin loves to listen to his music while operating his Toledo towing company. At work my aunt listens to her music while she’s cooking. There is no end to the possibilities when it comes to music.
Think about the music in your head that drives the urge to vocalize or make a little harmony. Where does that come from, and where would we be without it? Unimaginable, completely unimaginable – the world without music. A stretch of the mind beyond the comprehension of any human being.
Even in a remote jungle of the Amazon, the birds’ song is celebrated and translated into ceremony and ritual. In Africa, the cradle of civilization, in remote villages where they don’t even have the basics of clean drinking water, they make music. Just as water filtration is important for a healthy life, music is important for a healthy spirit.
