Yesterday I was on the phone with my folks back stateside. A situation is developing that is not good, not good at all. I went back from work, did a few things and basically wanted to curl up in a corner with a blanket over my head. during dinner I saw some people had gathered for a jam-there`s a guy from Indonesia currently, with a really fine voice, and a bunch of guys from Philippines. I learned a long time ago that, that country has some fabulous musicians. I was invited but I said, not today let`s do it another time. I was going to just play a little by myself and then find a corner and a blanket. but something made me change my mind. I tuned up and said, screw it-I`ll just play a little.We were joined by a girl who also sings great. That was approximately one evening and a hangover ago, ouch. Fortunately it`s a light day at work. but that was one of those times when, it wasn`t just practice-I NEEDED some music.

Same old surprises, brand new cliches-

Amazing, the power of music, eh?

 

I think my Mom's involvement in our Church's music ministry has helped her keep an active mind and social life, broadened her horizons, and been an ingredient in fighting her depression.

It`s one of the most positive forces we have I think.

Well that situation I mentioned, has reached kind of an apotheosis, I may be away from the forum for a while. But I have a live performance a week from today and I`m going there to rock it, music is my co-pilot. Thanks for the reply, all the best.

Thanks for sharing that Skip - I can relate.

Sometimes the insanity of this world makes me think, why bother? Then I pick up my guitar and everything makes sense again.

This thread reminds me of a charity I love, Guitars4Vets. They get guitars and some free lessons for US vets suffering from PTSD as a first step in music therapy.

As it happens, I also have a friend who does music therapy for developmentally challenged kids,

 

And as I'm sure most of us have seen, there are studies out there that show that people who study music, even informally, do better at a all kinds of other demanding mental challenges.

 

So remember, you're not just a musician, you're a medicine man!
