MUSIC...TOPS MY "THANK YOU" LIST.
EVERY DAY, I’M THANKFUL FOR MUSIC. Somedays, when I find it difficult to write or express my thoughts, I just open my mouth and start singing.
Regardless of the song, singing usually provides my best inspirations. Singing always lifts my spirits to greater heights, while loving-away...all doubts and sadness. I learned a long time ago--it’s impossible to cry and sing at the same time.
Writing music, encouraging my students with special needs to sing, always made teaching easier and learning more fun. “Don’t worry if it’s not good enough….for anyone else to hear…..just Sing, Sing a Song!”
I recall how my special needs students especially loved one song I wrote---just for them. “Why would you want to be somebody else-not you…you’re so very special. Why would you want to be somebody other than you…you’re so unique! You could search the whole world over….and you’d never find, but one-of-a-kind, and that one….is YOU...Let me hear you sing it…..”
Music will continue to make my Thank You List, every single day. Music has been such a dominate force all my life. I will never imagine life without it.
