For as long as I can remember, music has been an integral part of my life. I played the violin, piano, clarinet and guitar as a child and my brother was a gifted musician who could play by ear any piece of music that he was fond of. I often use music to speak, when I can't find the words, or to emphasize the words I do manage to string together. Those of you who know me well, already know this and thankfully, take the time to listen.:) There is always a message and for me, music is a universal language of peace. I, personally like music of many genres. My favorites span everything from Queensryche to Bach and a multitude of notes in between. I've found peaceful moments in the likes of John Denver, Chris Botti, Bruce Springstein, Michael Jackson, Ella Fitzgerald, Amy Grant, Eva Cassidy, Lady Antebellum and so many others.
My life has always had a soundtrack. And it always will.
