MY LIFE DESERVES A "THANK YOU NOTE."
EVERY DAY-- I’M THANKFUL FOR MUSIC. Somedays, when I find it difficult to write or express my thoughts, I simply-open my mouth and start singing.
Regardless of the song--- singing provides my best inspiration. Singing always lifts my spirits to greater heights--while it helps remove my doubts and sadness. I learned a long time ago--it’s impossible to cry and sing-- at the same time.
My original music with catchy lyrics always encouraged my special needs students to sing---which 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 particular 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 continues to "top" my Thank You List, every single day. Music has been such a dominant force in my life AND---- I can't imagine trying to live life---without it.
