Let the Music Flow

"Take a music bath once or twice a week for a few seasons.
You will find it is to the soul what a water bath is to the body."
~Oliver Wendell Holmes

I am a little bit late on the May giveaway. I thank all of you for sharing your thoughts about empowering music. You gave me a gift. I now have several new-to-me songs to seek and put on my MP3 player for those times when I need inspiration. Songs like:
  • Chariots of Fire - by Vangelis
  • I Can See Clearly Now - by Hothouse Flowers
  • 32 Flavors - by Alana Davis
  • Running Up That Hill - by Placebo
  • Revelation Song
  • Hallelujiah - by John Cale
  • Walking on Sunshine - by Katrina & the Waves

All of these songs evoke such different feelings. They would be good to have on hand for just about any mood to strike.

"My idea is that there is music in the air, music all around us; the world is full of it, and you simply take as much as you require." ~Edward Elgar

I promised that I would giveaway two of the Dan Mitchell Sound CDs (and a little surprise from my studio as well). So I assigned each comment a number in the order they were written and went to the Random.org number generator. Here are the winners:

Congratulations Deryn Mentock of Something Sublime!

Congratulations Jannie Funster! (Who is a songstress in her own right...go check out her blog!)

I will be in touch with each of you!

"Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent."

There is music all around us. Are you listening? It's the violins of the wind in the trees that is the soft background music in the world outside.
It's the lilting melody of the woodwinds in the voices in the little children, the flutes...aah...the flutes.
It's the percussion section in the thunderstorm.
All the sections in the orchestra are there. Listen. Listen to the symphony that is life.
