From the beginning it has been my joy, my medicine, a lyrical partner in my most intimate moments.
Growing up I escaped often into its comforting embrace, losing myself for hours in the words and the melodies. Thousands and thousands of tracks are imprinted on my soul, some to such a degree that hearing them can still carry me away to a place of pure bliss. Some I can’t bear to listen to because they still, even after so many years elicit a profoundly visceral reaction in me that is better left to the past. That’s what the best of music can do to a body. It can crack you wide open and force you to come face to face with your truth. It can move you to dance, will you to get up and try again, and simply make you smile. Gut-wrenching and glorious, a marriage of two extremes—that is the magic of music.
An incredibly talented artist making music magic right now is singer/songwriter Rosi Golan.
Check out my interview with Rosi in tomorrow’s Daily.
Great post.. So beautifully said. She’s wonderful…
Merci, JL :-)
I couldn’t agree more. Music is so powerful and I love Rosi Golan! Can’t wait for your profile tomorrow. BTW – great picture of you from “back in the day” :)
Thanks! Time flies! Music on the other hand, never changes. Only the way we feel about it.
The flannel shirt, the jeans, the handmade quilts…my kind of gal. So ME! GREAT post! And thanks for introducing me to a new singer/songwriter!
It was a time in our lives, wasn’t it?! Goes so fast!
Beautifully put and I completely agree Re: music. I also find it hilarious that I wear flannel and a braid all the time…the apple doesn’t fall far does it?
It certainly doesn’t, Miss Katherine :-)
Great post and picture, and for anyone who grew up in the 60’s and after, music defined life. Whoever described music as “the universal language” was one smart person :-)
What would we do without our music?
Completely agree, music does so much for ones soul. Looking forward to learning more about Rosi Golan and her music.
It does, indeed. So happy you stopped by!
