It is hard to believe that today I am doing episode 55 of HowieDoinIt.  Today’s word is music. Music is important. Music is important to our souls.  Here is today’s quote, “People are like music. Some speak the truth, while others are just noise.”  

I was reading this book for the second time.  It’s called “Divide and Conquer”  by Brent Goldstein who rode a bicycle 2,731 miles from Banff, Canada to Antelope Wells, Mexico alone through mountains and treacherous weather.  He did it for the love of his best friend whom he lost to the heinous disease, cancer.

Brent is my inspiration.  He road 2731 in 30 days on a bike.  

When asked how he managed boredom and how he kept his mind occupied day after day for one month, Brent’s answer was simple. Music. 90% of his waking hours he listens to music.

Bono was quoted as saying, “Music can change the world because it can change people.”  

And Billy Joel said, “I think music in itself is healing.  It is an explosive expression of humanity. Its something we are all touched by no matter what culture we’re from.  Everyone loves music.”

My life changed dramatically 5 years ago.  I wasn’t in a great place. My good friends told me to trust them and they took me to a concert. There is a community that is wrapped around live music.   Live music is good for the soul.

I love quoting musicians.  Billy Joel, the Grateful Dead, Taylor Swift whatever genre of music you enjoy.  Enjoy your music. Embrace your music. Share it with others.
