Music - A Migraine Patient's 30 Days of Gratitude
Hello again, Migraine and headache family. How is November treating you so far this month? I truly would like to know, so please leave a comment so we can catch up a bit.
Do you listen to or make music often? Music has been part of my life for as long as I can remember. Mom used to play the piano, and I remember Daddy singing to me when I was young. He knew that sound hurts when I have a Migraine, so he'd sometimes hold my hand when I had one and hum very softly. I've dabbled in music for most of my life - singing in church choirs, singing in and directing church choirs, being in school and community theatre musicals, singing for weddings and to earn extra money during college. Most of all, I love listening to music.
Here are a couple of my favorite quotes about music:
"Music has charms to soothe the savage breast
To soften rocks, or bend a knotted oak."
"My heart, which is so full to overflowing, has often been solaced and refreshed by music when sick and weary."
I want to share one of my favorite songs with you. The song is All Good Gifts, and it's from the musical Godspell:
For day #11 in our 30 Days of Gratitude, I share my gratitude for music. Music is always appropriate - when we're happy, when we're searching, when we're celebrating, when we're sad, when we're frustrated and in the mood to protest. Ask any teenager about sad music. I've never known a teen who didn't mix music with teen angst.
