I met my husband Mark through music. He was a radio DJ when we first became acquainted. I knew him through his music.
Music has gotten me through good and bad times. It touches my soul. And, I forgot that for a time.
I was reminded this past weekend when my trainer, Deirdre Sabo-Frary, danced to music with my horse, Okido, in several musical freestyles. In fact, in one show, they danced to the regional championships with two qualifying scores.
Deirdre commented about how much Okido loves his music. As I watched him, I thought he just seems to come alive when he hears his music, and trust me, he knows it's his music.
If music affects the animals in our lives, think about what it does for us. It lifts our spirits, carries us away to our fantasies, and makes us happy while we work.
I put on the best of Seals and Crofts, one of my favorite oldies duo, this morning, and I am quite happy as I work.
This is a hard time for all of us. This year hasn't been what we all expected when we rang it in on January 1st. But, we can learn that we have definite ways to get through them. Think about the music in your life... whether it is really music, another person, your family, or the things you love to do.
I know that I am inspired to go dance with Okido. I hope you will listen to the music in your life and let it lift you above all else.
Til Next Time,
