    They truly do!! Music is humanity’s way of relieving and expressing itself. It is the one and only universal language.

      I like your thought that music both relieves and expresses. That touches on how music speaks to us on the inside and how it gives us a voice to the world. It is definitely a language that transcends what threatens to separate us. Thanks for sharing!

    I love it, Paulann. It’s so true – music moves me – sometimes tapping what I might otherwise have though, untappable!

    I’m sharing the ABC award with you if I ever get my post finished (I’m not sure it’s a gift – it’s taken me all day to try to accept it!)!
    It would be a grand way to get to know you better if you’re so inclined. No pressure, though. 😀

      Tapping the untappable in ourselves and others is so true. Hospice caregivers often talk about people who are unable to communicate because of dementia, or who seem unresponsive, and how when someone begins to sing to them, they respond by joining in. Music doesn’t seem bound by the same limitations that words alone may hold.

      Thank you for the ABC award. I do think of them as gifts. I have also gotten stuck at times while completing the process, largely due to my determination to do it “right”, to follow the rules. 🙂 Thank you again for your thoughts. They also give me expanded ideas to ponder.

      Jen, Thank you for inviting me to take part in the Blog for Mental Health 2012 campaign. I can’t think of a more worthy project to participate in. Using blogging as a vehicle to help us better understand what mental health is and encouragement to take care of ourselves emotionally as well as physically is both an exciting and sobering possibility.

      You are always generous in your comments, and your insight and honesty are refreshing. I hope to get back on the blogging track by the weekend after a few days of battling bronchitis.

Please share your thoughts...
