music and troubled times

Music, especially the sorts of music we talk of here along the music road, is a good companion in times of sorrow as well as times of joy, in times of sorting things out as well as times of confidence moving forward. The music we talk about here is diverse at times, butit holds in common threads of hope and threads of reflection, in hard times and happy ones.

There are many sad things going on in the world, and in our day to day lives, as well -- and many ways joy is present, as well. Let us remember the joy and comfort music brings in all sort of circumstance.

Music has always played such an important role in my life. I can think back on any decade or even event, and associate a song or two with it.
