40 Lessons I've Learned in My 40 Years: #33

Life Lesson #33:

Music is a fantastically emotional art, and I could not imagine life without it.

Music can soothe me, energize me; it gives me a way to express anger or sadness or silliness or joy. It can completely change my mood, and can take me away to another place. Music brings back memories -- both good and bad -- and takes my attention away from anything else around me.

Nothing is more fun to me than a live concert. Nothing gives me chills more than hearing thousands of people singing together.

Music makes a road trip, a party, a workout and a house chore more like an adventure. Music makes worship more tapped into the heart.

Music not only molds my life, but defines it.

My life is a soundtrack.

I agree...I can hardly function without music.

If I was a sculptor, but then again, no
Or a man who makes potions in a travelling show
I know it's not much but it's the best I can do
My gift is my song and this one's for you.
